On Tuesday afternoon we had our 8th Annual Maple Ridge Gobble Off! One representative from each class came down to the office to gobble over the intercom. Students in their classrooms voted for their favorites. This is a well-loved tradition at our school!

Today is Education Support Professionals' Day. We love all of our support professionals! Our custodians, sweepers, secretaries, technicians, bus drivers, crossing guards, lunch ladies, nurses, etc. are the VERY BEST! We truly could not be successful without them! We are grateful everyday for their hard work and for helping make Maple Ridge such a great place to be. (Pictured here are just a few of them!)
