To Maple Leaf Elementary families -

Everyone at Maple Leaf Elementary School would like to thank the Maple Leaf Community for all of their support throughout the school year. At Maple Leaf, Everyone Achieves. No Exceptions. No Excuses. We have built our school around this vision, and without the dedicated work of our students, staff, parents, and community members, we would not be able to do what we do. The Maple Leaf family encourages you to continue to learn something new every day. Just twenty minutes of reading or practicing math every day before you rest your head on your pillow at night can make a huge difference in the fall. We hope that parents will help the students with this task and encourage them to continue their studies, by taking them on “field trips,” visiting the library, or exploring new things. Also, parents, please remember to register your five-year-old for Kindergarten as soon as possible at the BOE. 

To the students who will not be returning to Maple Leaf, we hope that you continue to grow wherever life takes you. The compassion and hard work you display will help you to succeed in your life. To the students who will be returning, I look forward to witnessing your growth in the coming years. It was an honor to be the principal at Maple Leaf. Thank you to the whole community for making my first year a success, and with their help, next year will be even better! Have a wonderfully relaxing summer, and I will see you in August.
