Art Gala

The art gala will be a wonderful opportunity to see how talented our students are.



Congratulations to our Child Run participants. They did a great job of raising money for the Children’s Hospital by running 8 kilometres. The event was lots of fun with much free food and many child centred activities. Let us hope more families will participate next year. Thank you very much to all the parents who participated and gave our children this experience of showing their courage and determination as well as their community spirit.

Student Council

“If you walk or drive by 45 and Cypress you may have noticed how well our corner of the roundabout is growing. For the past few years, a neighbour who lives across the street from the school kindly purchased some plants for us to plant on our corner.  This past month, the student council used some of the money they raised to purchase new plants for our school flower gardens.  The older plants and the newer plants look lovely!

Request for Photos

A “year in review” slide show is being put together for our final assembly.  Do you have any photos that you have taken this past school year that you think could be in the slide show?  Please feel free to email a few pictures to maplegrovephoto@gmail.com.

Courage is personal bravery in the face of fear. It is doing what needs to be done even when it is really hard or scary. Courage is going ahead even when you feel like giving up. Courage is needed in trying new things. It is admitting mistakes and then doing the right thing. Courage is the strength in your heart.

One of the hardest things to do is to say to a friend that you think what they are doing is wrong and refusing to join them. It takes a lot of courage to say “No” if friend suggests something that looks like fun but you know is wrong. It takes courage to be different and stand up for what you believe in. It takes courage to live a virtuous life.
