All the best for 2021
Dear Maple Grove Families,
You might have already heard, but in case you haven’t I wanted to share some news with you – Mr. Evans has been on leave since December 9th and is planning on returning on January 4th. His Dad is ill, and he has taken the time to be with his family. Filling in for Mr. Evans is Mr. Kevin Land. Mr. Land is a retired Principal, with over 37 years with the VSB. He has been a Principal at many schools, both elementary and secondary – most recently at Churchill Secondary. He started as an Elementary teacher and loves being back at schools. We are very fortunate to have Mr. Land join us at Maple Grove.
As always, thank you for your incredible support at Maple Grove. We hope everyone has a restful holiday and we look forward to seeing you in the New Year.
-Ms. Cuccurullo, Vice Principal
-Mr. Land, Acting Principal
-Mr. Evans, Principal
It may not look like much, – especially compared to previous years – but these ten gift bags contain greeting cards, chocolates, crayons and gift cards for the BuyLow store in the Kingsgate Mall. Many thanks to BuyLow for adding 10% to the funds that we raised. These ten families, from our sister school, Nightingale, are made up of 40 individuals and vary greatly in number and age, but they will now have a much more festive holiday thanks to your support.
Thank you to all the generous families who donated to purchase the gift cards.
Thank you to Student Council (Ms Kao) for crafting some lovely greeting cards. Thank you to Ms Yeung, Ms Garrod, Ms Vermaas, Ms Peters for shopping and organizing and to Ms Nancy and Ms Julie for delivering to Nightingale.
