Fifteen of our Maple Ridge Mathletes participated in the Springville/Mapleton math tournament this week. Our Maple Ridge students did outstanding! Bear Bingham was the first place student overall and one of our teams took second place in the team competition! We are very proud of all their hard work! #mapleridgepride #MRsmartkids
The Utah Shakespeare Festival is once again hitting the road with its Shakespeare-in-the-Schools touring production – this year performing one of the world’s first psychological thrillers, William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
An evening performance for everyone is this Tuesday, April 16, at 7:30 at Springville High School, 1205 East 900 South, Springville, UT. Another performance will be held on Monday, April 15, at 3:30 p.m. at Spanish Fork High, 300 West 99 North, Spanish Fork. And, admission is free.
Michael Bahr, the festival’s education director directed this production. “For many of our audiences this will be the first time they have seen a professional Shakespeare production,” said Bahr. “This program seeks to entertain, enrich, and educate with innovative and accessible performances to rural and urban schools and communities, many of which would not have this opportunity otherwise.”
Come be entertained and enriched with one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays – and again, admission is free!!!
Our PTA is excited to invite our school community to join us in celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week. We are so thrilled to have such wonderful teachers and teacher helpers here at Maple Ridge. Many have asked about favorite teacher items so we are making a list available for you if you choose to access it. Please remember that a note of gratitude from you or your student is the best thanks anyone can receive!

This morning Cara Boyer and Stacey Hall were recognized as Maple Ridge's classified employees of the year. They do so much for our school and we are so lucky to have them as our P.E and Library specialties teachers. Next time you see them make sure to tell them thank you for all they do for us.
