Maple Ridge Weekly Update | Oct 23


School Update 
To the students and families of MRS, 
We are nearing the end of October and this is always the time of year when we see relationships taking place in the school. Teachers are really coming to know each student and the students are establishing connections with their peers. As we are both new to the school, this is an exciting time for us. We are truly enjoying each interaction we have with your students and we look forward to the growing relationships as the year continues.  
We want to send a heartfelt thank you to our School Council who had the funds to approve multiple purchases that will support all our students. Thank you for all the work behind the scenes that helps to make this happen.  
We wish all students and families a wonderful snowy weekend and encourage you to embrace the winter weather.  
Kind regards, 
David Laidlaw and Sandy McNeil

Lockdown Practice
This morning we had our first internal lockdown practice with our School Resource Officer. This practice ensures that all staff and students are familiar with the safety measures outlined in our Emergency Response Plan and know what to do in case of a real emergency. 
As a school, we are required to have a minimum of six fire drills each year and two practice lockdowns. All staff and students treat these drills seriously and we are proud of how our students handled todays practice. 
Halloween 
With Halloween taking place on a weekend this year, we will still be allowing students to wear costumes or pajamas to school on Thursday, Oct 29th. We respectfully ask that any weapons be left at home as well as any gory or violent costumes. This will allow all students to feel safe in our school environment.  
To remain in alignment with our Re-Entry Plan and with AHS guidelines, we request that families do not send in any snacks or items to share with classmates.

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. https://t.co/vIasS9Wo8I
