Dear Maple Grove Families,
Another busy week has drawn to a close. Lots of things happening around the school. Our Senior Boys and Senior Girls basketball teams are in mid-season and doing very well. We are hopeful that as the season draws to a close they will continue with basketball in high school.
Snow days (school closures) are rare in Vancouver. Thank you to everyone for being diligent and listening to the radio and watching social media for information regarding schools and weather. This year we had only three phone calls about whether school would be open.
Our Lockdown drill went very well. Thank you to everyone for accommodating our practice as we work through various emergency procedures throughout the school year to ensure the safety and security of all students.
Special Thank you’s to our PAC Exec for hosting a lovely Lunar New Year Tea in the library last Friday. It was a nice casual way to end the week and celebrate a special time of the year.
HIP HOP Dance lessons are in full swing. This is part of student’ Physical Education Program and a special treat for all students. Thank you to our awesome parents for making this event possible for our students. We could not do this without your support!
ONLINE School Fees in Vancouver. Vancouver is moving to an online system for parents to pay fees. This will apply to all schools in Vancouver. This is applicable for school fees, supply fees, field trips, etc. More information to follow… but to date 3/4 of Maple Grove families have registered!!!!! Bravo!!!! This really helps parents track fees paid AND it helps Mrs. Peters in the office!
Schools are beginning the process of starting to plan for September, 2019. This is a crucial time when having a magic crystal ball would be lovely. That being said, knowing about Maple Grove family plans for next year is important in the projection and planning process. Please know that we are actively trying to garner a sense of how many students we will have throughout the school in both Montessori and Traditional programs. Any assistance you can provide regarding new families in the neighbourhood, or transfer outs would be appreciated.
Please be reminded:
