A big send off last week for one of our favorite people! Mrs. Kurzinski has been our school psychologist at Maple Ridge for the past seven years. She has helped countless students to be successful. Mrs. Kurzinski is moving back home to Pittsburgh and she will be missed so much by all of us at Maple Ridge. We love you Mrs. Kurzinski! You'll always be a Maple Ridge Mountain Lion! 

Hope of America

Our fifth graders recently performed at the Hope of America program at the Marriott Center with many other Utah County elementary school students. They sang songs about The Declaration of Independence, our Founding Fathers, the military, and songs reminding us how much we love America and our responsibility to be a light as citizens of the United States. It’s always fun to see our students participate in this activity!

Track meets are always a favorite end of year activity for students. Our Maple Ridge 5th, 4th, and 3rd grade students all had their track meets this week. They did well and had a lot of fun! A big thank you to all the parent volunteers who came and helped out with events!

Maple Ridge kindergartners recently went on a field trip to the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City. It was a little stormy but the rain held off long enough for them to have a great time!

Mrs. Matis is "Nacho Ordinary Principal" and we are so grateful for all she does for us! Today we had a little fiesta and ate chips and salsa to celebrate National School Principals' Day. We are so lucky to have Mrs. Matis at Maple Ridge!
