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!
