STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK
Save the date! Staff appreciation week kicks off on Monday, May 6 and we plan to treat our amazing Maple Grove staff to food and surprises all week. Keep an eye out in upcoming Friday folders for opportunities for students and families to show their appreciation for teachers and staff. And this year, students can help staff earn credits toward prizes when they show their appreciation.
Please also be on the lookout for ways that you can help make the week a success in upcoming sign-up geniuses. In the meantime, contact Elizabeth Dehm at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any ideas, donations or would like to help make this week a success.
And, new this year, the healthy schools committee is sponsoring a wellness raffle throughout the week to help promote staff wellness. If you have any wellness items that you'd like to donate to the cause, please contact Nicole Howe @ email@example.com.

The Science Fair is almost here! It is this Thursday, April 18th! While registration is closed, anyone from the school is still welcome to come see the amazing experiments that the kids did this year.
Here's how the day of the Fair goes: In the morning, students that performed experiments will meet with scientists to discuss the findings of their experiment. After that, classes will come through the gym to see the displays. In the evening, all students, families and friends are invited for the Science Fair Reception. The reception is from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm in the gym and cafeteria. From 6:30pm to 7:00pm the gym and cafeteria will be open to view the experiments, talk to the Student Scientists about their experiments, and have some snacks. At 7:00pm, awards will be given to recognize participants.
If your child is participating in the Science Fair, please bring their display to the gym after school between 2:30pm and 6:00pm on Wednesday, April 17th to set up. If you are unable to set up during that time or if you have other questions, please contact Heather Gutherless – email@example.com or 720-323-5932.
