Dear Maple Leaf Families, 

With great excitement and enthusiasm, Maple Leaf Elementary welcomes students and staff to the 2022-2023 school year. This year, we will focus on growing academically and socially and utilize PAX and zones of engagement, as well as “What I Need,” W.I.N. We welcome 9 new staff members to our building, who bring a love of education and who will mentor our students.

Please remember, our new school hours will be 8:35 a.m. – 3:05 p.m. this year to help accommodate eased traffic flow concerns and the safety of our students. To our families, please remember that we are here to support you and your child(ren).  Just reach out.  A video will be forthcoming regarding the pickup and drop-off patterns in the building as well. We are always available at 216-662-3800.  We also encourage you to join our Remind by texting 81010 @ghmaple to get the latest updates and visit the GHCS website to see what is happening in the district.

During these final few weeks of summer, please remember to speak briefly with your child about PAWS. If you are not aware, just ask! Bring your Summer Solutions on the first day of school to be entered into a drawing for a prize!  We look forward to meeting you at our Back To School Kick-off at the HS on 8/23/22 from 4-6:30pm.  It's going to be an AMAZING school year!
Can’t wait to begin this exciting new school year.

Jean Rizi
