Happy New Year!

Welcome back everyone.  We have a few changes to our staff for 2017:

Division 12:  Debbie Lam has begun her maternity leave and Heidi Kimmick has taken over for her.  We are happy to have Heidi remain at Maple Grove!

Resource:  Ruth Ann Ginther has added Monday to her schedule at Maple Grove – for Sonya Serbic.



We are getting all the details in place for our First Lunar New Year Festival on Friday, Jan 20th from 6 – 8:30pm and we are looking for your help and expertise!  We need volunteers for the usual jobs…. Set up, food, admissions, games and clean up!  We need YOU!!  :)

Division 11

A few weeks ago, some of the girls in Ms Hales’ class began playing “hair salon”.  The other day, one of the girls found an efficient way to do more than one hairstyle at a time.  Ms Hales is planning on visiting their salon once they perfect cutting and colouring.  Enjoy!
