One to two students from every classroom were recently recognized for showing INITIATIVE. INITIATIVE is one of the Maple Ridge Pride characteristics.  These students are consistently motivated to stay on task, and work hard to do their best! They know what needs to be done, and don't have to be asked twice. Each student recognized was given a treat along with a certificate.

Fifth and sixth grade students were given the option of doing a science fair project.  On Wednesday, February 1st, students who chose to participate, brought their projects to display.  There were several projects ranging from how temperature affects magnets, to whether or not you can tell if someone is lying.  Great job to those students who took the time outside of school to do these projects!

The student council at Maple Ridge plays such an important role.  Not only do they do fundraisers for the school, they set the example to others of how we can be kind and respectful to all. We appreciate all the work they do for our school!
