March Edition

Principal's Corner

Maple has definitely been enjoying the warmer weather and getting the kids outside to play!

We have several family oriented-activities coming up in April. The weekend of April 16th through the 18th, Maple will host a Virtual Family Reading Night. Information on the event can be found by clicking here.

Maple will also be hosting a Grandparents Day Parade on April 28th from 10:00-10:30. More information on the event can be found by clicking here. A virtual concert will also be released that day for families to enjoy together.

As a reminder, Hoopeston Area Schools will be observing Spring Break from March 26th through April 4th. Students will return to school on April 5th. I hope you all enjoy a wonder spring break!

Students Need to Be In School On Time Everyday!

One of the biggest challenges we face at Maple is attendance. Parents, please help us by having your student in school on time, every day!

Having your child to school on time each day is one of the most important things you can do to ensure their academic success. In fact, research has shown that your child's attendance record may be the biggest factor influencing their success!

When students aren't here in the mornings on time, they miss out on:

  • Sharing experiences and conversations with their friends and teacher
  • The opportunities to be class helpers
  • The opportunity to get properly settled in and ready for the day
  • The opportunity to participate in special announcements and fun activities

What can you do to help your child be punctual every day?

  • Establish a regular bedtime to ensure your child gets enough sleep
  • Help them be organized by laying out clothes, backpacks, shoes, etc., the night before
  • Lead by example!

Happy, organized parents=happy, organized children-=happy Maple staff!

Maple School Drop Off

This is just a reminder to make sure you are using safety precautions when dropping your child off at school.

  • Please make sure your child has their backpack, etc., with them and they exit on the passenger side of the vehicle.
  • If you would like to get out with your child, please park away from the building and walk them up to their door.
  • If you have multiple students that attend Maple, and you have a kindergartner, you MAY drop them all at the kindergarten door. This will ease up the traffic on 4th Street.
  • Please be mindful of traffic signs, crosswalks, etc. We must keep our students safe. Please drive carefully around the building.

Thank you for helping us keep our little ones safe.
