Dance Fundraiser

The kids had a BLAST in the gym yesterday dancing the day away! Thank you for your donations that will go towards technology at Maplehurst.  A big thank you to our parent volunteers for donating their time yesterday too. We raised just over $3000! Way to go!


Medications at School

All parents are reminded that prescription medication must be stored in the office if is at school. In addition, there are mandatory forms that must be completed by your doctor for ANY prescribed medication that either your child takes themself, or that you are requesting school staff to administer. Please ensure that you TAKE THE ATTACHED FORMS to your doctor’s visits in case you do get medication prescribed that needs to be taken during the school day. Thank you!
