Sports Day is on Friday, June 19th. Students need to arrive in their classrooms on this day at 8:30am and all students will be dismissed at 1:30 pm. This year, our Sports Day theme is Disney Movies. Students will rotate through 10 stations – each with a Disney movie theme. Some of the stations are: Pirates of the Carribean, Don’t Let it Go, and Aladdin’s Magic Carpet Ride. Make sure to slap on some sunscreen before coming to school and to wear running shoes and a hat. Students are encouraged to wear their team colours (their teacher can tell them which colour to wear) or to dress up in a costume (but make sure it is one that allows your child to run around). Parents are invited to attend as spectators. We will begin in the gym where among other things, we will also have a race for pre-schoolers so if you have a youngster, feel free to enter them in the race.
Report cards will be distributed on June 25, the last day of class. If you are leaving early, please supply the office with a self-addressed, stamped envelope and we will mail the report card to you. You may also write us a note to allow someone else to pick up the report card for you. Any report cards that are not picked up or mailed will be kept in the office for you to collect in September.
Global Citizenship Club
The Global Citizenship Club has worked very hard this year to raise $1,600 for charities in Vancouver and around the world. We also collected 650 lbs of food for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Our club is dedicated to making the world a safer, happier and healthier place. We also promote student leadership and youth empowerment. This year, our members organized food drives and made hampers for local families in need. We also raised funds to help build a health care centre in the Amazon region of Ecuador. A special thank you to all of the families who baked for our “We Bake for Change” campaigns. We would also like to acknowledge all of the support we have received from our Maple Grove community. Together we can “be the change” that makes the world a better place. The final Global Citizenship Club meeting will be on Thursday, June 18th. All participating members should come to Ms Lam’s room at recess on Thursday. If you would like to join us next year, Mrs. Peters and Ms Lam would love to see you at our meetings in September.
Grade 6 Camp
United for a Cure Popsicle Fundraiser
Thank You, Maple Grove Community! A very big, heartfelt thank you to our Maple Grove community for supporting Division 13’s United for a Cure Team at their popsicle sale this week. The fundraiser was a big success! The team raised $750 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s 2015 Walk for a Cure for Type 1 diabetes. Your generous support will help all of those in BC–many of them children–who live with Type 1 diabetes. We have a very special, caring community here at Maple Grove.
The annual primary talent show was a great success. Students loved watching the performances which included gymnastics, dance, instrumental performances and singing. Thank you to Mrs. Prodan for organizing. The intermediate talent show will be this afternoon.
