Before Spring Break, students at Maple Ridge Elementary had the opportunity to participate in Kindness Week. Kindness Week was sponsored by the student council. Every day throughout the week, students focused on one way they could show kindness to others. If students wanted to sign a pledge to be kind, they received a kindness button.
Did you know that our amazing librarian recently built an igloo out of milk jugs? Miss Stacey, the librarian, issued a challenge for students to guess how many milk jugs were used in the construction of the igloo. Those with the closest guesses were recognized.
Recently, representatives with Clark Planetarium in Salt Lake City visited Maple Ridge to teach students about science concepts. Students were able to learn more about why we have seasons, and why the earth is actually colder when we are closer to the sun. Students were also able to hold a real meteorite.
