Maplehurst Message for December 1, 2017

Yearbook design contest!

Would you like your artwork featured on the cover of this year’s Maplehurst yearbook? Design a cover and hand it in to Mme Phillips by Monday, December 11. You could be the designer of the 2017-2018 yearbook! *The winning designer will win their copy of the yearbook for free*


  • Use a regular 8 ½ x 11 piece of white paper.

  • Include “Maplehurst Public School” and “2017-2018” somewhere on your design.

  • Use bright colours - markers will work best.

  • Be creative!
