On behalf of everyone at Maple Leaf Elementary School, thank you to everyone who has made the first nine weeks unfold in a way that was better than anticipated. Students are doing a great job of keeping their masks on so that we can joyfully see everyone in-person and learn together! An exciting new club is beginning, called “Let it Breathe” Art Club on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 4th and 5th graders along with Boys Basketball at the Middle School. Your son or daughter is encouraged to explore these options so please check them out. 
 
In addition to some of the academic strides made during the first quarter, I thank the students for being kind, caring and showing their PAWS behavior. In doing so, they emerge as PAX leaders where we better ourselves, and in the process, better the world. During these uncertain times, the parents are to be commended for their patience and flexibility. Maple Leaf will ask the parents to continue encouraging students to participate in class and complete their assignments on time. Your encouragement goes a long way. Stay in the Game, students, and parents, and please send your child to school every day on time. Don’t pick them up early, if at all possible. We want our students to learn in person for the full day as best as possible. Please be on the lookout for a new traffic pattern beginning at the building as well. 
 
Please keep November 9th on your calendar as a day for the Title 1 meeting for parents on ZOOM at 6 p.m. We strongly encourage all families to participate. 
 
Finally, as the temperatures change, please send your child to school properly dressed. We will be having our Toys for Tots drive this year as well. Thank you for your continued support. 

Jean Rizi
