November 9th Update




It’s been a busy week at Maple Grove.  Thank you to all the students, parents, staff and community members who helped ensure our Remembrance Day Assembly was a success.  All of the staff worked so hard to make sure the children had a wonderful and positive experience.  Special thanks to Ms. Smith for all of her organizational work.  Thank you also to Mr. Naipaul for working on the process and set up.  Special thanks to Ms. Tornroos for helping pull together the program and ensure we had artwork throughout the school.  Also thank you to all the staff for making accommodations and adjustments for the past three weeks as we pulled this event together.  Thank you also the parents for being so supportive with the process.

Parents, please remember that there is no school on Friday and Monday.  Enjoy your extra long weekend!


In addition to the moving presentations that students shared at the Remembrance Day Assembly, classes have been working on inspired art work. This piece was completed by Divisions 16, 17 & 18 with Ms. Adams.

Student Council/ Spirit Leaders

Thursday, Nov 8, 2017, Student Council/Spirit Leaders decided to hold a Random Acts of Kindness Day.  They surprised the whole school by plastering teacher’s doors over the lunch hour with post-its and hearts with messages acknowledging the work we do.  Thank you leaders!  You truly make a difference!

Remembrance at Maple Grove



Div 17 – Immigrant Tea

The Immigrant Experience: On Wednesday, students from Division 17 hosted parents and grandparents for an Immigrant Tea. Their dramatic, funny, and sometimes sad stories complimented the class’ study of the experience of immigrants before, during and after their arrival to Canada. The class is grateful for the time they shared.



We Scare Hunger

Our We Scare Hunger campaign for the Vancouver Food Bank was a success thanks to the hard work of Global Citizenship members, Ms. Watkins and Ms. Garrod. Thank you to all the Maple Grove families for your generous donations.
