2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR OFF TO A GREAT START!
Thank you to all of the students and parents for the excellent start to the school year! We welcomed all of our new and returning students, as well as new staff in our assembly yesterday. As well, students and staff met in family rooms for the first time today and learned about all of the new and interesting sessions planned for "SOLE time" this year. In addition to academic help sessions, a number of new high-interest sessions have been added. These include Computer Programming (Coding), MANGO Language Learning, Science Fair, Fitness, and more! There are also returning favourites such as Archery, Intermurals, SCOER and Book Club. Students are settling into their classes and we have received alot of positive feedback!
Parents/Guardians: Before your calendars fill up, please mark in Meet the Family BBQ and Information Night for Thursday, September 15th! The BBQ will be on from 5:00-7:00 p.m. There will also be information stations for parents who want to learn more about Maplewood (accessing student marks and attendance info) and/or MyBlueprint (a school and career planning tool). Intermittent Parent vs. Student dodgeball games are also planned! More info will be posted soon! Parents/guardians should be expecting a "welcome to the new school year" call home from their child's homeroom teacher soon! Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have.
Have a great long weekend! We look forward to seeing students back at school on Tuesday morning!
