Maple Grove celebrates anti bullying day:
Canadians everywhere took a stand against bullying by participating in Pink Shirt Day (Feb. 24).  At Maple Grove we held a morning assembly which featured performances from a number of our students and classes.  It was a fun-filled hour of music, poetry, and speech.  Thank you to all for their engagement and commitment to making Maple Grove a wonderful, respectful school.  Special thanks to the PINK Day Comittee (Mrs. Tornroos, Ms. Shoemaker, Mrs. Adams and Ms. Yeung).  Special thanks to Ms. Yeung for her musical talents.
