Maple Grove Elementary: Mid-Summer Update

It’s official, this week marked the half-way point for summer vacation. Only 44 days until we once again welcome your students back to Maple Grove Elementary! We are getting excited as our team continues to work to prepare for the upcominIMG_2889g school year. This past week, teachers volunteered their time to work on “Lead Time” lessons as well as our “Habits at Home” communication resource. Today, we are having benches and a new sign installed at our building’s main entrance, prior to receiving some improved landscaping. Playgrounds are becoming ADA compliant with the installation of rubber tiles in certain areas for greater access, and final details have been completed for our upcoming Kindergarten Camp on July 30.  As you can see, summer months don’t stop us from striving to make Maple Grove the best possible place for your child to learn.

Furthermore, we want to provide you with a few items to keep in mind mid-summer:

  • Looking for a FREE camp?  Google happens to offer one online:
  • If you are still considering ordering your child’s school supplies online, July 20 is the last day to order. Find more information about the online orders and a link to our updated supply list HERE.
  • Our district office will be sending out annual registration information in late July. Please be on a look out for this email and complete the registration for all of your children as soon as you receive this information and link.
  • Dates to Remember:
    • July 30 – Kindergarten Camp for entering Kind. families 5:15 – 7 p.m.
    • August 20 – MGE Open House from 5-7 p.m. (Bring School Supplies)
    • August 24 – School Begins (Yahoo!!)

Enjoy your weekend and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to let me know!

My Best,
