Maple Grove Elementary (MGE) is planning a engaging learning and sharing evening in January. We will host the first MGE Family University Night on January 17, 2013. Staff members, community members and local organizations will be hosting mini-workshops (40 minutes) and/or booths for parents and students. Our PTO will be providing dinner and First Student will be giving parents of students heading to Woodland Hills an opportunity to take a “tour bus” to the new elementary and then on to Maple Grove for our event. At the conclusion of our event, First Student will provide rides back to the pick-up location.

Some presenters/booths will include:

  • New Woodland Hills principal, Scott Shumaker
  • South Middle School staff to answer parent transition questions
  • Local city libraries
  • A number of MGE teachers and staff members
  • ….and many more!

More information will be coming soon. We hope you plan on attending, learning, sharing and meeting new people.
