South Maple Elementary Newsletter
Greetings from Mrs. Hansen, Principal
Greetings South Maple Elementary families,
I am very excited to begin the 2022-23 school year. SME staff looks forward to a year filled with learning, hard work and fun.
Our goal is to have each and every student enjoy coming to a safe and nurturing school environment each day. The staff has been working diligently to prepare for the upcoming school year. Your child's safety and academic progress is of the utmost importance to us.
It is my privilege to spend time with your children each and every day. I am looking forward to working with you to make this a successful school year.
Enjoy the remaining days of summer!
