Good Friday the 13th Maple Grove,
It’s been another busy day here at the best school in Vancouver. As we embark upon a well-deserved Spring Break, we want everyone to practice kindness and safety.
Parents, if you haven’t checked your email, you have received a letter from our student records email regarding a letter from the Ministry of Education on the current state of affairs. While things may change over the coming week(s), please be aware that at this point there are no plans to extend spring break.
BC Schools met with their staff today and outlined the content of the letter. Please monitor local media when its time to come back to school- Monday, March 30.
On another note, schools are planning projections for September, and Maple Grove is looking rather full. We are continuing with the understanding that the new build is on time and schedule. More to come on this in the spring.
Thank you parents for being mindful drivers on Cypress St. While the crazy parking and speeding continues to this day… we are ever hopeful that awareness of others and better driving habits will prevail. Thank you to our safety patrolers who go out everyday to ensure families cross 47th + Cypress safely.
March 16 – 29 – Spring Break – no school
March 30 – First day back at school
Congratulations to Lexi Yu, in Ms. Lam’s kindergarten class! Lexi was invited to compete in the Elite International Music competition in New York City. She won first place and performed at Carnegie Hall. Well done, Lexi!
Young Rembrandts Drawing Classes:
This season, students will explore the intricate details of the breathtaking Taj Mahal and, we’ll take an imaginary trip to some beautiful places to draw a cute flamingo as well as learn about the history and artistry of a kimono. Students will learn basic to intermediate drawing skills, art techniques and vocabulary using an engaging methodology that all children can succeed with. We give them skills to express their creativity, introducing them to a fascinating world of colour, pattern and design. Be prepared for a bountiful selection of drawings!
