Students Exemplify Engaged Learners


Recently, students from each classroom were selected to show what it means to be an ENGAGED LEARNER.  Throughout the school year, students were chosen to represent each of the attributes that go along with Maple Ridge Pride.  PRIDE was the acronym chosen: P-Perserverance, R-Respect, I-Initiative, D-Determination and E-Engaged.  Great job to all of those who demonstrated these attributes on a daily basis.

Hope of America


After months and months of practice, Maple Ridge fifth graders performed at the "Hope of America" event at the McKay Event Center last week.  "Hope of America” is a highly effective musical program designed for school performances and/or classroom singing. Fourteen songs teach students about the Constitution, the Founding Fathers, how the government works, an appreciation for the military and other American heroes as well as promotes a greater love of country. These songs have been produced by national award winning musicians and composers and come with both vocal models for children to learn the lyrics and orchestral accompaniment tracks.
