​One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Parent societies are a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Parent Society

Meeting Dates/Schedule

Parent Society meetings are open to all parents and guardians of children enrolled at Maple Ridge School. These meetings typically follow our Maple Ridge School Council Meetings and are held on:

  • September 15, 2022
  • October 20, 2022
  • November 17, 2022

Our school Parent Society is known as the Maple Ridge Parent Association

The major focus of our Parent Association is to help raise funds that support curriculum-enriching activities, services and materials for the students at Maple Ridge School. We do this by running fundraisers like cookie dough and healthy hunger as well as a Casino every 18 months.

As a parent or guardian of a student attending Maple Ridge School you are automatically considered a member of the parent association and have voting rights at meetings. We greatly encourage you to attend these monthly meetings as we make many important financial decisions regarding school-based initiatives. Parent Association meetings are held immediately after school council meetings in the Learning Commons. 

Funds raised through the Parent Association have been used to support:

·        Mobile Smart Boards

·        Storage/charging cart for tablets

·        Future residency programs (examples - art, theater)

·        Yearly allowance per teacher for classroom supplies

·        Funds to cover cost of upcoming Science Olympics

·        3D printer

·        Coding kits

·        Online music resources

·        Library resources

·        Home reading books

·        Bussing for future field trips

·        Staff appreciation gifts

·        And much, much more

If you have any suggestions for fundraising activities, would like to partner with us, or are interested in helping out, we’d love to hear from you. Please email: mapleridgecouncil@gmail.com

We greatly appreciate your support!

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.
