The Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades will begin their performance at 9:30 and the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, along with the Maple Grove Chorus, will perform at 1:30 PM. All guests should enter school through our main entrance. Guests will not need to sign in the office to attend the concert.

There will be limited parking available in the Maple Grove lots. Guests are welcome to park in any of the spots in any of our lots, including the faculty lot. Please do not park in the drive in front of school. As well, please be considerate of our neighbours if you park on the street along Cold Spring, 68th St. or Bottsford.

Our students have been practicing diligently and we are looking forward to a great show.
