Maple Dale PTO
Maple Dale Elementary School offers many fun-filled and enriching opportunities and events in collaboration with the PTO! The PTO would like to involve everyone in the Maple Dale family and invite all parents and staff to participate through the Maple Dale Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
The Maple Dale PTO is a vibrant and committed group of volunteers composed of parents, school staff, and administrators who share time and talent for the welfare of all children. Through fundraisers, the PTO helps provide equipment, resource material, entertainment, and learning opportunities.
To join the PTO, return the membership form to Maple Dale with a $5 membership fee that helps support programming and creation of the student directory. Each member will receive a free student directory. Members do not have to attend meetings to be involved.
The Maple Dale Elementary PTO runs many fantastic programs that provide services and enrichment for students. All parents and friends of Maple Dale Elementary are invited to attend and volunteer for events. Individuals interested in helping with one of the opportunities or if you have a general question about the PTO, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Practicing hallway behavior!
Maple Dale has adopted a new positive behavior program called "PeaceBuilders." As part of PeaceBuilders, we will incorporate common building expectations and behaviors, including hallway behavior. Ask your child about the different expectations that have already been discussed.
You may add money to your child's lunch account through Parent Portal. Please contact Mrs. Georgia St. John with any questions regarding meals, your child's lunch account, or food allergies.
Thank you for everyone's patience as children are learning their bus number and the bus drivers are learning the new bus routes. If there is a change to your child's regular transportation schedule, please remember to fill out a "Parent Communication Form." You can pick these up at our Maple Dale office.
