Third grade students at Maple Ridge were thrilled with a visit from the Springville Rotary who generously donated a dictionary to each one of our 130 third graders. Students loved looking through the different resources and the favorite page seemed to be the one with the longest word in the English language! Thank you to the Springville Rotary for such an awesome donation.

Happy National School Counselor Week to our fantastic school counselor, Mrs. Brindley! This year Mrs. Brindley has implemented our Maple Ridge S.T.R.O.N.G lessons and she goes into every classroom each month to teach different skills to help students be the best people they can be (S.T.R.O.N.G stands for: supportive, thankful, resilient, optimistic, nice, and generous). Beyond teaching us these lessons, Mrs. Brindley jumps right in and helps whenever and however she can and is a very important part of our school. We are so grateful to have her at Maple Ridge. Thank you for all you do, Mrs.

First Graders in Mrs. Williams' class had a busy week! On Monday last week, they celebrated the 100th day of school. They each brought 100 things from home and participated in a 100 things museum with other first graders. On Tuesday they had  a fun math lesson with Mrs. Nelson from the district. They used Code and Go robots to create greater than, less than and equal statements. They had a blast.
