Good afternoon Maple Grove! Another wonderful week has come to an end. Thank you to those parents who were able to attend this morning’s PAC meeting. We appreciate your attendance, interest and support what’s going on at school. There was quite a crowd of parents at today’s meeting due to the seismic update. The school district is looking at ways to try to keep the integrity and vision of the original design for students while managing project costs. There will be more information to come over the coming weeks. For now, I encourage you to refer to the parent blog for further information and for ways to make your voice heard. The project is running on time… and there is no question the new Maple Grove will be a beautiful building.
I want to encourage all parents to consider parking a block away from the school and walking the remaining distance. This cuts down on traffic around the school AND provides nice bonding time with your child as you walk to school together. There will be a lot of construction on the street front over the coming weeks and we want parents to be aware that foot traffic is better than car traffic. Please be reminded that we have volunteer parents and students who supervise and participate in our school Safety Patrol. We ask that all parents adhere to their commands at the crosswalk and 47th Ave.
FSA testing is ongoing for our gr 4 and 7 students and we would like to acknowledge that we appreciate how data is collected and used by third party agencies when it comes to results. That being said, the FSA is a snapshot in time of how students are performing and it does provide interesting data for schools and districts to reference.
Next week is a short week… enjoy!
