Maple Ridge has enjoyed having Mrs. Rachel Marie Kimball, one of our district dance specialists, at school the past couple of months. Mrs. Kimball has used dance to teach students many things including wave properties, Ghanaian culture, Samoan culture, skip counting, division, factors and multiples, syllables, rhyming, measurements (cups, pints, quarts, gallons), and so much more. Check out the pictures to see Mrs. Hales' kindergarten students working on counting by ones and tens with Mrs. Kimball. A big thank you to Mrs. Kimball for helping us integrate dance into our school day!
Nebo School District in partnership with Spanish Fork City presents a virtual Love and Logic Parenting Workshop.
“There's a lot of advice out there on how to raise your kids – some better than others. ‘Love and Logic’ is a favorite of therapists, family life educators, teachers, principals, and most importantly parents. It is practical, easy to learn, and really effective! Come and enjoy this fun, upbeat, and informative workshop full of useful tips!” – Jonathan Sherman, LMFT, Family Therapist and Parent Educator

Ms. Paynter was able to present a donation to Utah Valley Refugees this week from our Maple Ridge penny wars. Utah Valley Refugees is an organization that is currently helping 150 refugee families, some of which have up to 12 members in their family. Due to the AMAZING generosity of our Maple Ridge students and their families, we were able to donate more than $6,400.00! Thank you so much to all those who donated! We are truly grateful and so happy to be able to do our part to help those in need. We hope you have a wonderful break and wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Our art teacher, Mrs. Stonehocker, is retiring. She has taught hundreds of students during her 6 1/2 years at Maple Ridge and they have learned so many fun art techniques from her. Thank you for all your hard work and effort at Maple Ridge, Mrs. Stonehocker! We are going to miss you but we send you off with best wishes for your new adventures ahead!
