    Dear Maplewood Families,
     
    This very difficult and very strange school year is coming to a close. The last day with teachers is June 10th. As you turn your attention to summer, I hope that things begin to become a bit more normal. At this point, we have no idea what school may look like in the fall. Keep an eye out for information that may be posted on the PPS website.
     
    We are working on class placements for the fall-these will not be finalized until we have a better idea of what school will look like.
     
    PTA Updates:
    We have new officers!   This year we have co-presidents Jackie Hadden and Erika Robles-Jones. Co-Vice president is Kari Martin & Emma Rawnsley, Secretary, Maureen Hodson; Treasurer Dean Smith & Jamie May. 
     
     
    Maplewood Foundation On-line Auction:
     
    A reminder that On-line Foundation Auction is open until June 6th. It’s not too late! Go to the link below to sign up for an account (or to update your old account) and register your card.:
     
    https://maplewoodfoundation.schoolauction.net/auction2020/
     
     After registering, feel free to preview the auction items we have in the catalog.
    We hope you share the auction flyer, attached, with friends and family! If a friend or family member is a lucky winner, we ask for your help getting the item to them. No shipping available.
     
    Money raised from the auction will go to provide Maplewood Elementary School with funds to hire additional staff members. We appreciate your support and hope to see you soon, bidding online!
     
    Yearbooks Pick-up:
     
    Next week, June 8-June 11th , we will offer a variety of times to pick up student yearbooks. Please email mbelgrave@pps.net if you have questions.
     
    Annual Fifth Grade Clap Out:
     Please join us in sending our fifth graders off to middle school! Fifth graders and their families will be participating in a safe distancing car parade through our wonderful Maplewood community.
    See the route in the community email sent 06/04/2020.   They will start the parade at Maplewood.
    The parade will take place Tuesday, June 9th, at 4:00 pm.   If you can step out your front door or park along the route and find a spot, they would love to see you waving, hooting and hollering.
     
    Important Library and Technology Information:
    1. Library books may be returned on June 10, 9-10:30 am. They do not need to be returned.
     
    2. Chromebooks do not need to be returned.   PPS is only asking for materials from graduating seniors.
    IF a family wants to return a Chromebook they received from Maplewood (not the district) they can drop if off June 10, 9-10:30 am in the library tub. (or email kordahl@pps.net for a different arrangement)
     
    3. All Google Classrooms will be archived on August 10. Teachers will turn off the commenting because they won't be supervising the Classroom.
     
    4. Student access to Gmail and Hangout (the Google Suite) are available year round.
