principals-messagePRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Happy Weekend to everyone!  As mentioned in the PAC meeting earlier today, we are very excited about some of the sketches and designs that the architects presented regarding the new Maple Grove school.  I am awaiting electronic copies of some of the drawings and I will share those with the broader school community in next week’s blog.

I also want to share with parents who were not able to attend the PAC meeting this morning that many teachers at Maple Grove will be piloting a new report card and reporting process for the school district this school year.  I will share details in subsequent blog entries regarding some of the similarities and differences between our old reporting process and our pilot process for communicating student learning.  Essentially, you will notice two significant differences:

  1. Our conventional reporting process involved three formal report cards and two informal reports .  This will switch to two formal reports and three informal ways of connecting over student learning .
  2. The other significant difference you will notice is that in conventional report cards we gave out letter grades and work habit classifications.  As part of the pilot, the new communicating student learning report will not have letter grades (these are available upon request from the parent). The new reports will continue with a classification for student work habits and achievement.

It is important to recognize that with a new/ re-designed provincial curriculum that is focused on 21st-century teaching and learning, that we truly needed to update and upgrade our conventional reporting process and format.  We have been informed that our district will be mandating a new format in September, 2018, so many of our staff see advantages for working through the pilot this year to become familiar and acquainted with the new communicating student learning formats.

There will undoubtably be some growing pains attached to this new process, but we are excited about the opportunity to provide meaningful feedback that is personalized and individual in nature for all of our learners.  We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and understanding while our school team works through this process.
I would also like to take a moment to acknowledge the VSB grounds department who worked tirelessly with the CoV to ensure that the Gateway at 45th was opened up and completed in a timely manner.  And while we will have to wait for the grass seed to take root in the area between the Magee Field and Maple Grove, it will be a, “wait worthwhile” as we will have a new green way for the spring.

traffic issues

REGARDING TRAFFIC–  We are continuing to witness some intense traffic on Cypress St in the morning and after school.  We’ve asked our policing partners for their assistance with distracted drivers and unconventional driving habits.  They’ve agreed to attend and monitor the situation.  Thank you to all the concerned students and parents who have come forward to express their concerns.  The safety and security of your children is a priority for us and we want you to know that we take this seriously.

Also, please reframe from walking in the driveway and staff parking lots.  Commercial vehicles and staff use both those areas to park – and they are simply not expecting to see children walking in those areas in the early morning hours.

We encourage all parents to park your cars away from the school and walk the one or two blocks with your child – enjoy the time in the morning for good conversation and shaping the rest of the day with your child.

Thank you to all the parents who were able to attend our first PAC meeting.  It was wonderful to see so many new, and returning faces.  It was great to see so many parents at the ELL Thursday morning class and at the Friday morning coffee social.  Also thank you to all the parents who have been supporting the school with their time, money and volunteerism.  We appreciate working with such great advocates of public education.  Thank you everyone!

 

Fresh To You Fundraiser

There is one more week left to place your orders! We are selling a $25 veggie bundle and an $18 apple bundle. Last week your child was sent home with an order form. Along with your order, please encourage your child to sell to other family members and friends. Our school receives 40% of the total sold. This is a great way to contribute to our school as well as encourage healthy eating habits.

Order forms are due back on or before Thursday October 19th, to your teacher or the school office. Payment can be made by cash or cheque. Please make cheque out to Maple Grove PAC. Bundles will be delivered to the classrooms at the end of November.

Your support in this fundraiser is much appreciated.

Thanksgiving 2

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!

Dear Maple Grove families, Please enjoy this holiday long weekend with family, friends, and those you love.  Rest, relax and find time to spend with you children.  Enjoy our beautiful city and good food and company.  There is no school on Monday.  We look forward to seeing everyone back on Tuesday.  

 

Foundation Skills Assessment

The Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) is an annual provincial assessment that will be
conducted in Grade 4 and 7 classrooms across British Columbia between October 2 and
November 10, 2017.  Information about the FSA can be found on the Ministry of Education provincial website:

https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/assessment-reporting/new-foundation-skillsassessment

which provides further details on all aspects of this assessment and its use,
along with sample tests that can be used for practice.  The Ministry of Education expects all students to participate in this assessment.

The results can be used as assessment for learning by your child’s teacher and serve as a provincial snapshot to provide information about how students in British Columbia are doing as a whole. Students may be excused due to a family emergency, lengthy illness or other extenuating circumstances that include lack of background in English or other learning difficulties.

You may receive a letter from your child’s classroom teacher that outlines their concerns about the FSA.  You may also receive additional FSA information that has been prepared by the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) regarding the administration of these assessments.

If you have any questions about these materials, how FSA will be conducted in your
school or the implications for your child, please contact Mr. Evans.

Do you have a child in grade 7??????

September 29 Update

 

principals-messagePRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Greetings everyone!  As we wrap up this first month of September, I want to acknowledge all of the overtime that the staff have put in to ensure that students settle quickly into classes and class routines.  I want to recognize all of the staff who helped cover classes where there was no assigned teacher.  We have completed our hiring, and we are now actively looking to secure teachers on call (TOC’s) who would like to sub regularly at Maple Grove.  I would like to take a moment to welcome our most recent staff additions: Ms. Janet Batsoulas (replacing Ms. Lam until her return at the end of March), Ms. Mary Ahn (has joined our resource team full-time ) and Miss Isabelle Tang (has joined our resource team on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and continues to be Ms. Seebaran’s job share partner on Thursdays and Fridays).

I would also like to take a moment to acknowledge the VSB grounds department who worked tirelessly with the CoV to ensure that the Gateway at 45th was opened up and completed in a timely manner.  And while we will have to wait for the grass seed to take root in the area between the Magee Field and Maple Grove, it will be a, “wait worthwhile” as we will have a new green way for the spring.

traffic issues

REGARDING TRAFFIC– I can’t tell you how concerned we are with the unorthodox and often unique driving scenarios that play out at the front of the school each morning (near Cypress Street and 47th).  I would like to forewarn parents that we are contacting the Vancouver Police and we will be asking for officers from their traffic division to come to the school and ticket unsafe driving.  I also want to alert parents that we will be contacting CoV by law enforcement officers to enforce city bylaws regarding cars and parking on the street.  Our number one priority is the safety and security of your children as they make their way to school.  On that note, I, again, want to caution parents not to use the school parking lot or the driveway out front as drop offs or walkways with their children. Commercial vehicles and staff use both those areas to park – and they are simply not expecting to see children walking in those areas in the early morning hours.

We encourage all parents to park your cars away from the school and walk the one or two blocks with your child – enjoy the time in the morning for good conversation and shaping the rest of the day with your child.

Thank you to all the parents who were able to attend our first PAC meeting.  It was wonderful to see so many new, and returning faces.  It was great to see so many parents at the ELL Thursday morning class and at the Friday morning coffee social.  Also thank you to all the parents who have been supporting the school with their time, money and volunteerism.  We appreciate working with such great advocates of public education.  Thank you everyone!

Terry Fox Run

 

 

The Terry Fox run scheduled for Friday was postponed. Some classes chose to run anyway.  The whole school will participate in a run next week.

Pro D

Professional Day on Friday, September 22: Art with Ms. Smith: Our new Vice Principal, Mariette Smith offered us several art lessons to share with our class. In addition to presenting art concepts, they made connections to our school goal of social emotional learning (SEL). With years of experience teaching art at the elementary and secondary levels, Smith is a tremendous resource and inspiration.

September 15th Update

 

principals-messagePRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Greetings everyone!  As students settle back into school routines, we are still working through Provincial challenges regarding staffing.  We are actively trying to recruit qualified teachers who will be able to provide a comprehensive and robust educational program for students in some classes.

Presently we are very fortunate that we’ve filled several of the positions that were vacant, but we continue to have surprises popping up regarding leaves, absences and the like.  Please be assured that we will endeavour to fill all of our vacancies as quickly as we can.

Thank you to all the parents who were able to attend our first PAC meeting.  It was wonderful to see so many new, and returning faces.  I know how challenging it can be to work all day, rush home, and then out the door to a school meeting.  So, thank you to all who were able to attend.  If you weren’t there, please know that you are welcome to attend any PAC meeting at anytime.  As a parent of a child at this school, you are automatically a member of our PAC and therefore welcome!!!!!  A big thanks to the executive members for all their work and to our amazing co-chairs for hosting such a nice event.  Also- thanks to Mrs. Tornroos for preparing the library and having it looking so sharp.

I want to acknowledge the staff for doing such an amazing job welcoming all our new and returning students- as well as our youngest learners (our new K’s).  School life can be difficult and an adjustment for some… and our staff have really helped to make the transition smooth and seamless.  I also want to acknowledge Ms Hales.  She has interviewed with me for all positions and organized three K classes until we had staff. This was a huge undertaking.  Thank you!  And, while we have very capable staff in place for now, she continues to mentor and assist where possible.  I also would like to acknowledge the work of many staff who are working diligently behind the scenes to provide extra programming to students (e.g., Cross Country- Ms. Shoemaker and Mrs. Humeniuk, Library and bookfair- Mrs. Tornroos, Safety Patrol- Mr. Naipaul and Ms. Adams… and I’m sure there’s more who I’ll mention in next week’s blog).  Thank you also to the wonderful parent volunteers who’ve been busy around the school setting up programs and helping out to provide an engaging school experience for all students.  You bring an amazing skill set to our school- Thank You!

principals-messagePRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

I would like to thank our engineering staff for an amazing job ensuring that our school is ready to go Tuesday morning.  It’s been quite a challenge with all the construction going on around us.  Thank you also to our neighbours for being patient with all the trucks, construction and congestion.  I’d also like to thank Ms. Smith and Ms. Peters for all of their extra hours getting the school organized and actually functioning.  I want to also thank Ms. Hales for all of her extra work organizing 3 kindergarten classes while we were/are in the process of hiring new staff.  I also want to acknowledge her for sitting on the hiring committee in the spring/summer and fall.  It was a huge commitment and she is a advocate of teachers and public education.  I also want to acknowledge Mrs. Tornroos for single-handedly getting our library up and running; pulled together a staff calendar for each staff member (there’s 55) and gave of her time in the spring and summer consulting with other school libraries (also for hosting several events in the library this week).  I’d also like to acknowledge our Supervision Aides who helped out around the school is so many different capacities this week.  They were always willing to lend a helping hand.  Further to this, I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to all the staff who came in and spent extra hours in the summer and these past few weeks helping to ensure the school was ready.  We are truly lucky to have such dedicated staff.  I would also like to thank all the parents who have offered help and support to get many activities and events up and running.  We simply could not do the work we do without your wonderful volunteerism and passion for education.  Thank you for helping to make Maple Grove an engaging and wonderful school environment for learning.

STUDENT SIGN OUT

When you pick up your child during the school day, please ensure that you sign them out at the school office. If you do not sign out your child, they will be unaccounted for, and the school will identify your child as a ‘missing’ student and will commence a search of school grounds. If the school staff do not locate the child, and are unable to reach a parent promptly, the school will call the Vancouver Police Department. Therefore, clear communication is essential for ensuring the safety of your child and to prevent unnecessary searches.

Thank you for helping us keep your children safe!

Sept 5- Traffic and Construction

* IMPORTANT- Please read *

 industrial-construction-signs-y4397559-33907-l11322-lg

Greetings Maple Grove Families,

Good Morning!  We’re writing to advise you of a couple of construction and traffic challenges that we would like all of our students and families to be aware of.  Some of these will be short-lived, others will be ongoing through the school year.

IMG_2698For the past 6 months, Magee Secondary School has been undergoing a building envelope upgrade.  The upgrade was necessary to prevent excessive water damage that threatened the integrity of the building structure.  As part of the Magee upgrade, there is a lot of construction equipment, portables, trucks and other machinery on site. Sometimes, through the upgrade process, the equipment is situated on Maple Grove property.  The project managers are in contact with both school administrators and are aware that young children and youths are present on both sites.  They are taking precautions to ensure the students are safe (e.g., moving equipment outside of school hours, etc).  We anticipate some of this work to continue through the upcoming school year.

IMG_2696Also, there has been some work taking place to facilitate services to the new Magee portables (some of which is being drawn from Maple Grove).  This involved two areas of our site:
a) our covered area/ mini field- running utility service to the new portables at Magee.  We anticipate that this work is now completed and will not be an issue for our students.  There is some grading of the field to do before we can get our all weather primary field back.  Until then, the area is completely fenced off.  The primary students may continue to use our primary adventure play area at the south end of the building as well as our undercover area to the west of the school.

IMG_2694b) running new utility services between the two schools (near the grass field and our earthquake container and our adventure playground).  This phase of the project has been completed, but the reseeding and new grass needs to be completed.  The fencing that runs North-South will likely stay up past the reseeding phase to allow the newly planted grass a chance to take.  This blocks westward access to Magee and its field.

IMG_2693In addition to the Magee envelope upgrade there has been  some site prep taking place in anticipation of the new Maple Grove Elementary School seismic project and the appropriate upgrades to city connections that are necessary under present day building code.  These upgrades were also necessary to service the portables.  This involved work at the North end of the property on 45th Ave.  We anticipate that the CoV will be finished their work on 45th Ave later this coming week.  Until then, we advise all families NOT to access Maple Grove from 45th (north of the school/ from the west).  (please see the sketched map at the conclusion of this blog)

In summary, while much of the work has been completed over the summer there are some residual effects from the work- and some finishing work that needs to take place.

park and walkWe are defaulting to our historical recommendations to families… if you can walk to school, please do so.  We apologize to our families to the west as they will have to walk to Cypress street (about 100m past the opening in the fence they usually use) and access the north end of the school near our gym.  We further recommend to families that if you drive, park a block or two to the east of the school and walk along 45th or 47th to the the school.  Please use our south, north entrance or west entrance.  Please do not use the front entrance as there is NO WALKWAY for your child.  Delivery trucks use our “C” driveway all day and they are not expecting children to be walking on the driveway.

IMG_2684
Also, please do not use the staff parking lot as a drop-off area.  Staff do their best to get to work on time and blocking them from parking in a timely manner is inconsiderate.  The COV has installed new 3 min parking signs all around Maple Grove.  We encourage you to consider parking around the perimeter of the building if you’re running short on time in the morning and not able to walk the block or two to reduce traffic.

Capture

We appreciate that this was a lot of information and not an ideal way to have our year start.  However, all of this is being done to ensure Magee and Maple Grove students have safe new schools in the coming years.  We view this as short pain, for long term gain!  We will all work together and come out the other side happy to be in dry, safe amazing new schools.  Please refer to this blog for regular updates.

Happy Schooling,
The Maple Grove Staff

WELCOME BACK

Greetings Everyone!   Welcome back to school!  We had a busy June/ July and a frantic past two weeks hiring additional staffing at the school and making all the necessary adjustments to accommodate various changes to staff assignments.  As you can appreciate, this is a complex process and will take a little bit of time to complete.  Further, it appears to be the norm in many schools in BC at the moment.  We appreciate your patience and support while we work through this process.
We are so looking forward to seeing the students and excited to begin the year.  The library will be open for coffee and tea from 8:55 am to 10:00 am on Tuesday.  I look forward to seeing many of you there.

WEEK 1 Overview
Here is what the start of the week looks like for all except the kindergarten classes. Kindergarten students have received their gradual entry schedules via email.

On Tuesday morning school is in session from 9-10.  Coffee is available for parents in our Library.  Please take your child home at 10 am.  There is limited supervision as staff will be in meetings all morning and then again in the afternoon.  Returning students are to report to their last year’s classroom.  New students to the school, who have already registered, will report to certain classrooms (see below).  Students who have not yet registered will report to the main office.  A teacher will be in each classroom to meet the students, take attendance as well as some general housekeeping items.

On Wednesday, students report to the Tuesday morning class.  School is in session 9:00-3:00pm.  Please send your child to school with a recess snack and a lunch.  Around 10 am, all things considered, we will likely move into our new classes.  At 11:00am class lists will be posted around the school (south stairwell, back entrance, north entrance, main entrance, outside the office) for parents to reference when they come back to the school to pick up their child at 3:00 pm.  Plan on arriving a little early so you have time to see which room your child is in.

On Thursday, students report to their new classroom.  School is in session 9:00-3:00pm.  Please send your child to school with a recess snack and a lunch.

Friday is a regular school day.  Please be reminded to send your child to school with a recess snack and a lunch.  There is NO HOT LUNCH program at Maple Grove.  Our PAC does do a hot lunch fundraiser (TBA).
