Maple Ridge fourth grade teacher, Darlene Mathews was recognized this week as our 2022 Crystal Apple winner. Mrs. Mathews has taught both 5th and 4th grades at Maple Ridge. Her team said, "Darlene makes coming to work a pleasure. Her smile and witty humor helps get us through even the roughest days. She thinks outside of the box when she plans her lessons and teaches in fun and creative ways." Mrs. Mathews is a well-loved and talented teacher. We are lucky to have her at Maple Ridge! Congratulations Mrs. Mathews!
Fifth grade wrapped up their Revolutionary War simulation just before Thanksgiving Break. They made puppets of influential Loyalists and Patriots in preparation for a speed learning activity where they had conversations with each other. Following this activity was the Revolutionary war...Battleship style.
