The kindergarten curriculum for this month includes learning about community. Our kindergarteners were able to tour a fire truck and an ambulance, thanks to our local heroes. They were given two assignments for homework. First, to create a safe meeting place outside their home in case of emergency. Second, is to learn their address if they ever are needed to call 911. We timed a fireman to see how fast he could get all his gear on and asked many fun questions. Thanks Mapleton Fire/EMS!
Before Fall Break, Harward Farms brought a pumpkin for each of our Maple Ridge students and staff (that meant that they donated more than 850 pumpkins!). The students were so excited and loved their pumpkins. We are grateful for community partnerships like Harward Farms who support our school. A big thank you to them!
