Summer 2017

To Maple Leaf Elementary families -

As the 2017 school year comes to an end, Maple Leaf Elementary would like to wish our fifth graders the best of luck as they go off to the Middle School in the Fall. We hope to have prepared every student as they take on new academic challenges. As students enter the next school year, our wish for them is to use the skills they have learned at Maple Leaf, including how to handle difficult situations and push forward in all aspects of life. Maple Leaf takes great pride in hearing all the positivity from the 6th grade teachers and expects to hear even more great news about our students when they start in August. Remember to continue to work hard and do not forget your locker combination!

As Maple Leaf’s fifth graders depart, we welcome new students into the building as well! Here at Maple Leaf we also pride ourselves in taking the time to get to know all our students as well as their families. Our team seeks to identify their academic strengths and the areas in which they may need support. We make sure instruction is meaningful, challenging and engaging, making teaching and learning first and foremost. Maple Leaf’s motto is, “Where we build relationships, teach with rigor and make learning relevant.” The entire staff looks forward to the incoming students and making the transition into the Maple Leaf family smooth and exciting.

To all Maple Leaf students, over the summer I suggest you read! Whether it is magazines, newspapers, gaming books, novels, menus, or online articles of interest, just engage your mind and read! Practice reading to family members as well, and make it a daily event in which the entire family can participate. Students should practice math facts as well as their writing skills. Start a writing journal, or create an electronic journal and write regularly, students can even write notes to family members and friends. Overall, the school year has been great. On behalf of the entire building and staff, I thank the Maple Leaf students and families for a great year, filled with hard work, energy and fun. I wish you all a wonderful summer!
