Completing Forms is Important

Earlier this week an envelope containing a number of important forms was sent home in your child's backpack. We would kindly ask that you fill out these forms as soon as possible and return them to school with your child. The opening demographic sheets and emergency contact information needs to be updates and signed off so we have accurate information to contact you in case of an emergency.

Principal's Message

World Teachers' Day

Dear Parents of Maple Ridge School
Tomorrow, October 5, is World Teachers' Day. This is a global day set aside by UNESCO to honor the incredible contributions teachers make, across the world, in developing minds to not only receive knowledge but more importantly to create and contribute knowledge.
UNESCO Courier journalist, Sébastien Farcis, recently wrote about a teacher in India who literally teaches under a bridge. I encourage you to read the short but poignant article about teacher, Rajesh Kumar Sharma, and the incredible work he is doing in New Dehli, India.
I won’t pretend to understand the context of any teacher in any country of the world but, as I read this article I reflected on some of the shared characteristics great teachers have, no matter where or who they teach. 1) Great teachers are absolutely dedicated to their profession. So much of the work teachers do is not visible. Countless hours are spent planning, assessing, strategizing and doing professional learning. 2) Great teachers are highly resourceful. They know how to take a concept, an object, an environment and transform it into a highly engaging learning opportunity. 3) Great teachers are passionate about learning. Doctors love medicine. Lawyers love the law. Statisticans love numbers. Teachers love learning. All of us are able to do what we do because at some point someone taught us or laid the foundation for learning in our lives.
This World Teachers' Day, take a moment to reflect on the teachers that had an impact on you. If you are able, reach out to one of those teachers to say thank-you. I guarantee they will not be expecting it but it will bring them a moment of great joy.
In the meantime, I want to say a huge thank you to the incredible teaching team of Maple Ridge School. I am humbled to work and learn alongside this team of dedicated professionals who deeply desire the best for all of their students.
Sincerely,
Brad Emery Principal

It’s September. It’s Calgary. Expect the unexpected when it comes to weather. We anticipate some bus routes may be running late. Also, students will be outside for breaks today as it isn’t cold, just snowy. Please dress appropriately.

RT @yyCBEdu: We respect parents/guardians right to make their own decisions about sending their children to school. If your child will not be attending classes please ensure you contact your school's attendance line to report the absence. #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/D4PhRNxqRV

Today we ran in memory of Terry Fox, in honor of family and for one of our own students, Max. #keepfightingMax #WeAreCBE @TerryFoxCanada https://t.co/Sw9YjAQ0s4

We are looking forward to honoring the legacy of Terry Fox tomorrow. Please see our website for more information about our run and about one of our students who we are running for. https://t.co/hqPHxxScaS
