Sixth Grade Planetarium Field Trip

Becky Manning, Jeanmarie Anderson

Maple Ridge sixth graders had an amazing time at the Clark Planetarium learning about a future mission to Mars and the various planets! In addition to learning so much, they also received the following email from Michelle Roberts at the planetarium: “I just wanted to pass on that multiple people on our staff remarked on how courteous and generally amazing your students were. They are awesome kids!” We agree! Our sixth graders are fantastic! 


PTA Fall Carnival Information and Volunteer Sign Ups

Information and Volunteer Sign Ups

Thank you to everyone who has signed up to help to help with the carnival! We still have quite a few volunteer spots to fill please take a look and see if you can help.


We need A LOT of volunteers to help out with games and food at the PTA Carnival on September 27th.  A volunteer can be a parent or a RESPONSIBLE older sibling.  The shifts are short so that you can still have time to enjoy the carnival with your family.  Please use the Sign Up Genius link below to volunteer.  If you signed up to be a carnival volunteer during the "Meet Your Teacher" day, we have already added your name to the Sing Up Genius during the time you specified.  If you need to make a change to that time, email

Number Detectives

Math in Miss Anderson's fifth grade class was an adventure today! Students were detectives to find the greatest number. Whoever said math is boring must not have been in this class!
