Good Afternoon Maple Grove families. As we head into the Easter long weekend I’d just like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to all our families. Whether volunteering to drive classes on field trips, or helping in the classroom with reading, or sitting on committees or helping with our hot lunch on Wed and Fri, we are lucky that you share the skill set you possess with us. Thank you for your awesome leadership and work with our students.
Enjoy the long weekend! Schools are closed tomorrow, Good Friday, and Easter Monday. Students return to school on Tuesday.
The VPD were visiting Maple Grove Wednesday to provide Traffic Education and assistance to drivers in front of the school. They will be returning over the next two weeks to hand out tickets for dangerous driving offences. Please do not confuse parking from driving. U-turns, 3-point turns stopping in no stopping zones are all considered driving offences. Parking offences only apply to parking zones. Consider parking a block from the school and walking your child to the building. This will help reduce the congestion and traffic on Cypress St. Thank you in advance for your assistance with this matter.
We have some exciting news to share with our school community! Early this year, some of our students participated in the Regional and Provincial Destination Imagination tournaments. Destination Imagination is a leading educational nonprofit organization designed to challenge the creative minds of young students! Maple Grove teams placed very high in both tournaments. Mrs. Humeniuk’s Grade 7 Teams, IDIas From the Sky and Aspirational Impromptuers, who placed 2nd and 3rd, respectively, at the Provincial Tournament. They are now heading off to the Global Finals, which will take place from May 22nd to 26th, 2019. Our two teams will be competing against 1400 teams from more than 15 countries from around the world. The Global Finals take place in Kansas City, Missouri.
Students from the two teams will be holding fundraisers for the next few weeks to help send our students on to the world stage! Div 1 will be holding bake sales, popsicle sales, donut sales…
If you would like to make a monetary donation, please return it to the office in an envelope marked with “Destination Imagination”. Donations over $25 are eligible for a tax receipt from the school board. You need to include your name, and address. That said, any amount would be greatly appreciated by the kids. this is completely optional and more an FYI, than a request. Go IDIas From the Sky and Aspirational Impromptuers!!
