Steve James performed for Maple Ridge Students as part of the kickoff to Red Ribbon Week. Steve James has been positively affecting the lives of children and families through his effective and entertaining school assembly programs for many years. Steve’s original music and interactive elementary school assemblies help build character, instill self-esteem, encourage good citizenship and service to the community, promote tolerance and understanding, and a whole lot more.
Teachers throughout Nebo School District learn how to integrate the arts through training. Mr. Bates' Class got to experience and entertain the art specialist from Nebo School District and reinforce their knowledge about fossils. It was educational and extremely engaging all wrapped-up into one lesson. Which fossil do you think looks the scariest?
Recently, sixth grade students from Maple Ridge attended the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center in Pleasant Grove where they learned about core curriculum concepts related to space. They also participated in a flight simulation where they had to work together to achieve a goal.
We look forward to a wonderful week of conferences. Although our long day will be Thursday, October 26, teachers will be scheduling throughout the week in order to meet the needs of inviduals. We look forward to meeting with you!

Starting at the beginning of October, and extending through the entire month of October, Maple Ridge Students will be looking for opportunities to show kindness. Kindness Month began with student council members visiting the classrooms to introduce the theme, and talk about how to show random acts of kindness. Each classroom decorated a poster, and students signed a petition to show kindness to others. Mrs. Jenkins' sixth grade class showed kindness by going to the other sixth grade classrooms and cleaning off their desks!
