School Halloween Dress Up Oct. 29
We are sad not to be able to participate in this annual event, but don't worry--we will make a school video showing costumes and events to be able to share with our Maple Ridge Families in order to join in on the fun that day. It will be posted at mapleridge.nebo.edu for you to enjoy on Halloween at home!
PTA Reflections Entries Due
Tuesday, Nov. 3rd, 9am
This is an online event.
Remember to turn in your PTA Reflections project. The theme for this year, 2020-2021, is "I Matter Because. . .".
PTA Reflections welcomes, free of charge, students from all grades and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Annually, thousands of students will reflect on a common theme and create original works of art in the categories of Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, 2D Visual Arts, and 3D Visual Arts.
PTA volunteers run the Reflections program at the local school, council, region, and state levels. Between 10,000 and 13,000 entries are submitted annually in Utah and roughly 300,000 entries are submitted nationwide.
