Dear Maple Grove Families,
From us, to you, may the joys and delights of this holiday season shine upon you and your loved ones. May you find peace in the holiday, warmth in the spirit of the season and joy in the friends you keep.
This was avery busy week at school. We were graced with the presence of the Magee Chamber Choir. They were amazing. Ranked #1 in BC and #3 in Canada, the choir, under the direction of Mr. Greg Quan, put on a 25 minutes Christmas Concert that blew us away. These talented students inspired many of our Maple Grove kids to want to join choir. It was awesome!!!
The unsung heros of the Winter Concert are the AV monitors. Affectionately called our Roadies, they make sure the event goes off without a hitch. They work long hours and are often setting up, taking down, and doing sound checks long before, and after a concert. Thanks to Katherine, Karen and Kianna.
Christmas brings family and friends together; it helps us appreciate the love in our lives we can often take for granted. May the true meaning of the holiday season fill your heart and home with many joy and happiness.
PS-Please read some of the thank you letters sent to our school community. They are a testament to your giving and generosity.
A big thank you to the Global Citizenship Club, Ms Lam, Ms Lowe and all the other staff and volunteers who worked on the Holdiday Hampers for our sister school, Nightengale. It was so successful that we were able to prepare some hampers for Tecumseh Elementary as well!
