To Maple Leaf Elementary families -

As your new Maple Leaf Elementary School principal, I want to welcome you to our building and the start of the 2017-2018 School Year. If you are returning to ‘The Leaf,’ then I greet you with a message of ‘welcome back.’ If this is your first experience with our school, please know that Maple Leaf Elementary School is similar to a family and we will do everything possible to ensure a smooth transition for you.
At Maple Leaf, we believe that every student has the propensity to achieve… no exceptions! While the instructors here are dedicated to compassion and developing lifelong learning skills for our students, our entire team believes that everyone is capable of learning… with no excuses! Please be prepared for a rigorous upcoming school year.
Reading and literacy skills will be a distinct emphasis this school year. Instructors will have a sense of urgency and the building will be equipped with supplemental resources. We ask that you, as parents, spend time every night with your children reading. Your help truly goes a long way in impacting their academic success.
Please keep in mind that Open House is scheduled for August 30th, and we hope that you take advantage of this night to come and meet your child’s teacher. At Maple Leaf, we believe that communication will also be very critical in ensuring success this year. Apart from academic opportunities, please keep in mind that many co-curricular activities exist for students at our building as well, including, Zones, Boys and Girls Club, Big Brother/Big Sister, Kiwanis Club, and Boy Scouts.
Together, let’s make this an amazing school year.
