Weekly Update |June 26-30, 2017

Principal Update

 

Earlier this spring, students had the opportunity to participate in a collaborative art project related to the changing seasons. This four panel art work is now proudly displayed in our East main floor hallway, against the gym. Over the past number of weeks, students have been pondering possible names for the artwork and then more recently voted on their favourite one. Our students have decided to call their artwork ‘Painted Friendship’. I love this name as it is a reflection of the collaborative learning community we have fostered throughout this school year.

 

As this will be the final Weekly Update of the year it is really a moment for me to pause and reflect on the incredible year that has gone by. The word that keeps jumping to mind is community. As a learning community we have celebrated successes, journeyed through challenges, and navigated changes. Regardless of the road being travelled, we did it as a community. No single individual is responsible for the learning that occurred in our building, it was done together. Through this collaborative learning journey we have also developed new friendships that are now literally painted on the canvas of our halls.

 

Thank you for the time, effort, passion and dedication each of you, as parents, have put into making Maple Ridge School the successful learning community that it is. I want to wish each of our families a safe and restful summer and I look forward to continuing this journey with each of you in the fall.

Principal

 

Farewell
As we move forward into the upcoming school year we want to say farewell and thank you to a few staff members who have played pivotal roles in the learning of our students. Mr. Craig Meuser, Ms. Marcy Koopman and Miss Tamara Wong will all be moving on to different roles and/or schools for the fall of 2017. We wish them continued success and appreciate the impact they have made on all of us at Maple Ridge School.

 

The teaching and support staff for the 2017/2018 school year is in the process of being finalized at this time. We look forward to sharing with our broader school community a full staff list in the first Weekly Update of the new school year.

 

Bus Registration / Noon Supervision Registration
Bus registration for September 2017 is on-going through the CBE My Account. The sooner families register for bussing, the more accurate our Transportation Department at the CBE can effectively plan bussing routes. Students registered for the bus will automatically be registered as requiring noon hour supervision. For students not riding the bus, noon supervision registration will be made available on the CBE My Account in late summer. Payment will not be required until late October 2017. Registration is important for accurate planning of all programs as well as the safety and security of our students.

 

Report Cards
Report cards will be distributed on the last day of school for all students, Wednesday June 28. No report cards will be distributed before this time. If your child will not be in school on the last day please provide the office with a self-addressed, stamped envelope and we will mail it to you. Unclaimed report cards may be picked up on June 29 & 30 or when the office reopens on August 30, 2017.

 

Library Books – Now Due
All library books are now due back to the library. We extended the date this year to allow for maximum time with reading materials, but it is now time to return books so we can shelve and inventory the materials for the summer. The sooner the books have been returned, the easier it is on our library staff. We would appreciate you supporting your child in having a good look around the house for any outstanding materials.
