It’s that time of the year where things get very busy on the school front. Just a quick note of congrats to our Sr. Boys and Girls Basketball teams. Both teams made it into the March Madness playoffs… with the Sr. Boys making it all the way into the City semi-finals. The Sr. Girls demonstrated excellent development and improved all season. The Sr. Boys- despite being one of the smaller teams in the league- were very skilled and were undefeated until the semis (9 wins; 1 loss). Congrats to both teams and their coaches:
Sr Girls- Justin and Jason (Magee basketball players)
Sr. Boys- Principal Evans and Noah (Magee Gr 12 Basketball player)
Maple Grove is very full these days. We are a full school for next year as well. There are many reasons for this… but we are over 526 students.
Maple Grove was entertained last week by “Ginger”. Ginger is a children’s performer who came to co-host our Ready Set Learn (RSL) event. Also present were the school nurse, our SLO and the public library librarian. RSL is an annual event hosted by the school to educate and inform parents on literacy and school readiness for preschoolers and new kindergarten students. Special thanks to Ms. Hales, Ms. Lam and Miss Kao for all their amazing efforts to organize the event.
