February 11th Update

New Sign-In Procedure for Late Students

Late Slips

We have noticed an increase in student tardiness at Maple Grove. Being late for school, even if it is only by a few minutes, presents the following challenges:

  • Teachers need to stop their instructions to welcome their late student; this impacts instructional time for other students;
  • Late students miss out on important instruction and routines in the morning;
  • Causes disruptions with office staff.

We have decided to try a new procedure for late students to sign-in. We have piloted this new procedure this week, and it has proved successful. Therefore, any student who is arriving at school past 9:00 will now need to do the following:

1) Enter through the Library doors

2) Sign-In on the form at the Servery counter (we have staff available to help those who can’t quite write yet)

3) Grab a bright orange slip from the Servery counter

4) Hand in the slip to their teacher when they arrive in class

We appreciate your support and collaboration in ensuring that our students are at school and ready to learn at 9:00 every morning.

Div 15 Sewing Skills

Div. 15 has been learning sewing skills through the winter. They learned how to sew 8 different embroidery stitches and then used them to make stuffies that they designed themselves. We are so proud of all the hard work the students put into designing challenging 3-D shapes and all the artistry they put into their decoration. The stuffies look spectacular!
