We're Off To A Great In-Person Start!

It is so great to see some of our students in person! We are happy to have our kids back in the classrooms! Everyone is doing a wonderful job of wearing their face masks and "putting their paws out" to social distance. Parents while you are here dropping off or picking up students or are here dropping off or picking up items please remember to also be wearing your masks and social distancing. Please refer to the map below for Drop Off and Pick Up Zones. We would like to remind parents that the Busing Zone is for buses only. Please don't drop off or pick up your students on the South side of the school.

We want to give a huge thank you to Chick-fil-a for the luncheon they provided to the Maple Grove Staff in September. We appreciated it very much!

Thank you Gina McMullen for our Freezer!

Gina McMullen, Grandmother to our 3rd grader Molly McMullen kindly donated a Freezer to Maple Grove for the support staff to have ice available on the playground for minor injuries. We are so grateful for this donation! Thank you so much!
