Our custodian, Mr. Swenson, will be retiring at the end of this school year. Mr. Swenson has done an amazing job keeping our school clean and looking like new! To celebrate him, we had a "Bon Voyage" party, pulled him around the school on a boat and stopped at different "ports" where the grade levels cheered, sang, showed off posters, etc. At the end, we were all treated to a live band, Rock Daddy, out on our playground. A big thank you to Mr. Swenson for all his hard work at Maple Ridge! We will miss you! Also a big thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Forsey who generously donated their time and the use of the boat and trailer for our Bon Voyage party!
