Maplehurst Message for September 28, 2018

Good afternoon, Maplehurst families. It is hard to believe that we are into October next week already! It was wonderful to see so many students and parents out to Open House last night. It was a great turnout.

Parking Lot in the Morning

I recognize that the beginning of the day is a busy time and some students need to be dropped off. Our buses use the parking lot from 8:50-9:10 am each morning and must be able to enter and exit the parking lot without issue. Please DO NOT go against the flow of traffic in the parking lot while buses are loading/unloading. As a reminder, only park in designated spots if you are getting out of your vehicle. If you are just dropping a student off, then please do so quickly so as not to block the buses. Thank you for your cooperation.

October 5 PA Day

Students do not have school next Friday as all staff will be focusing on Math learning for the day.

Cross Country

We wish all the best to our runners at the regional Cross Country meet on October 4th! They have been practising hard and will represent Maplehurst well.

Terry Fox Run

Thank you for your donations to the Terry Fox Foundation! Maplehurst students have raised $205 so far. A reminder that this year donations are online only at

Jungle Sports Permission Forms

Once again, students will be participating in the Jungle Sports program for one week in October. Our gym will be set up with a small ropes course and apparatus. Students will have three sessions throughout the week to participate. Required permission forms came home earlier this week. Please return before October 4th.
