Principal's Message

Welcome Back and Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a peaceful and relaxing break and have returned to school ready to learn and grow. As Maple Grove students return to the classroom, parents have several opportunities to learn as well. On Tuesday, January 12, Kindergarten Literacy Night (see below for more information) will be held at the Greenfield Public Library from 5:30 to 6:30 PM. On Thursday, January 21, elementary parents are invited to Greenfield High School to learn about Greenfield's math curriculum. This event begins at 6:00 PM. Parents and guardians are also welcome to attend our next STP meeting on Wednesday, January 20 at 6:00 PM in our Library. I hope you can attend one of these events.

As always, please feel to contact me if you have specific questions or concerns,

Ken McCormick
