For our Maple Ridge STRONG assembly this month, Mrs. Brindley arranged to have Ryan Stream come and talk to us from Stand4Kind. He talked about the importance of helping others and being a good friend. We had fun but learned a lot too. Thank you Mrs. Brindley and Mr. Stream for reminding us of these important things!

Discovery Gateway Visits 4th Grade

Submitted by becky.manning on Wed, 11/02/2022 - 22:32

Recently our fourth graders enjoyed a visit from Discovery Gateway. They talked about amphibians and reptiles and about structures and the functions that help tiger salamanders and king snakes survive in their environments. We learned that king snakes mimic eastern coral snakes and that tiger salamanders breathe through their skin and go through metamorphosis. A big thank you to Discovery Gateway for such an interesting presentation!

Maple Ridge kindergarteners had a fun field trip to Glen Ray’s Pumpkin Patch! We had fun going through the corn maze, playing in the corn pit, and going down the giant slide. We even learned about how pumpkins grow and all the jobs farmers do. Thank you to all the parents who came and helped! It was a fun fall day!

Drum Donations to Our Music Classroom

Submitted by becky.manning on Mon, 10/24/2022 - 18:45

We are so appreciative of the generosity of several people who donated instruments they were no longer using for our students to use during music class. Since many wished to remain anonymous, we only have first names for some of them. A big thank you to Tiffani, Beth Hardy, Carlos, Eric, John, Ron, Katelyn, and Ryan McKnight. Thank you for your kind hearts and your willingness to help our students learn to love and appreciate hearing and playing music!
