Maple Ridge Weekly Update | March 27

​School Update 
To the students and families of MRS, 
This week we celebrated Hair Love Day!  
Students were encouraged to wear a special hairstyle, or come as they are, because the celebration was for everyone!  
This day was inspired by the Oscar Winning Short Film Hair Love, and allowed us to come together to celebrate diversity and our unique styles. 
Wishing our MRS families a week full of family time and an opportunity to observe and embrace the signs of spring. 
With appreciation, 
MRS Staff

The Calgary Board of Education is inviting all community members to join us for an inspiring evening of learning with experts in understanding anxiety. Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns affecting children and families across the lifespan. Parents and schools play an essential role in helping children manage their anxiety. This session will explore what anxiety and stress are, how to recognize it, and how to support resilience.  
On April 4, the CBE's Well-Being team will host a free online session where parents can join and learn from experts in health promotion, ask questions and receive follow-up materials. 
You are invited to join us at the virtual session from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 pm on Tuesday April 4th.

Understanding Anxiety 
Child and Youth Well-Being Series for Families and Caregivers  
Tuesday, April 4, 2023 
6:30 to 8:00 p.m. 
CBE educators believe that parents and caregivers can inspire their kids to make healthy lifestyle choices and increase protective factors and in order to do so, they need the right tools and information. 
Since our understanding of student health and well-being is evolving, it is important for parents to stay up-to-date on the same information so everyone is supporting student success.  
This is the fourth session offered in a five-part Child and Youth Well-Being for Families and Caregivers learning series that is offered at no-cost to all Calgary Board of Education employees, families, and community members between December 2022 and May 2023. 
The intention of the series is to advance student well-being by raising family and caregiver's understanding of a variety of health-related topics. Each session focuses on reducing risk factors and increasing protective factors.  
The last session will focus on Understanding Social Media (May 2, 2023). Communication about this last session will be distributed separately.  
 You are a key partner in your child's education and student well-being is critically linked to student achievement.  
 Thank you for your time and consideration to join us. 
Trading Cards, Electronics and Toys 
We often remind students that we come to school to learn. When we keep this focus and lens on learning it reminds us that students do not need to bring items such as electronics, toys, and trading cards to school. These items are prone to being lost, broken, or taken and the school cannot be responsible for the safekeeping of these items. Therefore, we ask that students leave such items at home and use their school 'free time' to be physically active and to engage in appropriate social interactions. 
Should your child require these items as a support in the learning then we would ask that you have a prior conversation with your child's teacher before sending these items to school 
Scientific Interest | Playing in Puddles 
This time of year brings forth ice and puddles at the same time. Students have been exploring the ice and puddles around our school with a level of excitement second to none. Check out these great Puddle Play Investigations to enjoy over spring break.  
​Loonies for Literacy- Support Our Journey 
All funds donated through our Loonies for Literacy Campaign will help Maple Ridge School provide more literacy resources and opportunities for current and future students - even better, for every dollar our school raises, a community sponsor will donate another dollar to a school in need!!!  Together we can help students across Calgary as they learn and grow in their own communities

Thank you to those families who came out to the grade 1 celebration of learning today. They have been learning all about cause and effect by designing Rube Goldberg machines. They are then transferring their learning to what cause and effect looks like in an ecosystem.

Learning the science of wetlands and ecosystems today through drama. Thanks to @Evergreen_Th for inspiring our thinking and your creative story telling.

It was a #pinkshirt kind of day. Many of our students were engaged in fantastic conversations about the power of collective kindness. Way to go Maple Ridge!
