Dear Maplewood Families,
As you settle into your summer, I hope you have a restful summer break. It’s amazing to see that the end of the school year has arrived. I want to thank you all for your support for our teachers and school over these past 10 months. We had a successful 2017-18 school year. There are countless people to whom I owe an expression of gratitude. Thanks goes to all of the volunteers who were in classrooms and the library, also to those of you outside of the school supporting teachers in everything possible. Family presence and support make as much stronger community. We look forward to seeing you next year.
My thanks also to Gretchen Erickson, Danita Webber and Lara Linnman who organized the Enrichment Fund and worked closely with our teachers to ensure students had access to STEM activities and events. We are so appreciative to all of you who donated to the Enrichment Fund, every student at Maplewood benefited from your generosity. Thank you!

The school year was over, but more than 500 K-5 teachers were hard at work preparing for the 2018-19 academic year at the PPS Summer Institute at Roosevelt High School. The two-day training gave teachers the opportunity to dig into the new language arts curriculum, and hear from teachers who are already using it. The teachers also learned how the curriculum aligns with state standards and the district’s newly adopted scope and sequence — an academic term for what will be taught and in what order.
Dear PPS Families,
As the 2017-18 school year comes to a close, I would like to appreciate our students, teachers, support staff, and school leaders for all their hard work. They have all earned a well-deserved summer break. This past week, more than four thousand students walked across the stage at the various high school graduation ceremonies and received their diplomas. Congratulations to our seniors on reaching this important milestone. We wish you much success in your next endeavors.
