This past week has been National Volunteer Week in Canada. I wanted take this opportunity to say thank you to the many volunteers that help make our school a great place to learn. Whether you have volunteered once this year or on a weekly basis, you make a difference. Our volunteers go on field trips, read with students, paint pictures, straighten classrooms, organize papers, shelve books, put up bulletin boards, come to School Council meetings, plan fun lunches, set up special events and even work casinos. The possibilities and opportunities are plentiful and we cannot say thank you enough for everything parents, grandparents, friends and community members do in our school.
As small expression of our gratitude, we want to invite all volunteers to our Volunteer Tea on Thursday May 18 @ 9:45 AM. We hope to see you there.
Open House – May 12
You are invited to an open house at Maple Ridge School on Friday May 12 from 1:45 PM – 3:45 PM. This open house is intended for families & students new to Maple Ridge School for September 2017, but all are welcome.
The intention of the open house is to share some information about our school, for students to see our building and to meet some of our teaching staff.
We will not be discussing specifics about the Science Alternative Program as this was addressed at the Open House in early February and through online information. This Open House will be more about our school and give families & students a longer time to see our building.
We are also inviting our new Kindergarten students so they have a chance to see the building and what a Kindergarten class looks like.
General information sessions will be held in the gym as follows. The rest of the time will be for self-guided visits throughout our building.
1:45 PM Open House begins
2:00 PM General Information Presentation in the gym
2:30 PM Kindergarten Presentation in the gym
3:00 PM General Information Presentation in gym (Repeat of 2:00)
3:45 PM Open House closes
