NIGHT OF BANDS
I was very proud of our Maple Grove students who played at this event last Thursday. They truly played beautifully and I was very proud of them.
VANCOUVER REGIONAL FAIR
Yesterday our students shared their beautiful projects at the Vancouver Regional Heritage Fair. Some of them are featured below. This use of Project Based Learning to address Critical Questions is one of the new directions we are taking at Maple Grove. The students certainly learn a great deal from determining a question and then researching it. Many skills are developed including writing and oral language.

OUR STUDENTS SHINE
Jensen & Parissa showing their Gold Awards in Piano (Gr. 6 & 4) from the BC Conservatory of Music May Festival. Jensen also was a class winner in the festival. Many thanks to their teacher, Krstyna Tucka at the Vancouver Academy of Music, and all others who helped them in their endeavours to make this possible!
DIVISION 16 TO STAVE LAKE CAMP
Students in Division 16 very much enjoyed the camp experience at Stave Lake. Many of them were tenting or even away from home for the first time. However, they enjoyed it and I understand learned a great deal about being independent, cooking for themselves as well as learning about ecological stewardship.
