On Friday, May 5th, members of the sixth grade orchestra performed for the upper-grade students at Maple Ridge. The orchestra is comprised of sixth graders from both Sierra Bonita, and Maple Ridge. The orchestra performed, in part, to showcase what they have learned throughout the year, and to motivate younger students to enroll in orchestra.
Recently, Robyn Kerr, a second grade teacher at Maple Ridge, was awarded the Crystal Apple Award at Maple Ridge.
