Happy Mother's Day
Maple Hill honors and celebrates all of the women in our community that go above and beyond for our children. To the moms, step moms, grandmas, aunts, that love selflessly, nurture unconditionally, and provide guidance with such grace. We applaud your dedication and thank you for your unconditional love in raising our Maple Hill students. Happy Mother's Day! We hope that you are showered with affection and praise on your special day!
The Maple Hill Family
Inspiration from our 4th and 5th Grade WVUSD Choir Students
Ms. Lindenbaum, our music teacher, along with the other elementary music teachers in WVUSD, asked 4th and 5th grade choir students to watch a video by the group The Piano Guys called "It's Gonna Be Okay." Students were encouraged to respond to the video's message and make their own signs letting others know "It's Gonna Be Okay" . The Music Teachers received over 300+ 4th and 5th grade student submissions included from all 9 schools and created this video for us to enjoy. Please share with your child and we hope it brings you some positive cheer!
Honoring Our 5th Graders
Our 5th grade "Hawks" are leaving the Maple Hill "Nest". We want to celebrate their Maple Hill journeys with special surprises. Our first surprise was posting yard signs in the yards of all of our 5th graders. A BIG THANK YOU to our Community Club President, Natalie Johnson (Leah's mom in Mrs. Rovira's Class) for creating the yard signs and overseeing the entire operation. And we need to give a "shout out" to the dedicated 5th grade teachers, E.L.S Mrs. McNeil, and our parent volunteers for running around town delivering the signs.
Our Gratitude Goes Out To The Following Parent Volunteers That Helped Deliver Signs:
- Saralie Ekowibowo (Erin's Mom in Mrs. Swartz's Class)
- Stephanie Tran (Justin's Mom in Mrs. Mabini's Class)
- Amy Yang (Kyle Man's Mom in Mrs. Mabini's Class)
- Rebecca Dorado (Efren's Mom in Mrs. Swartz's Class)
- Maribel Gonzalez (Alexander's Mom in Mrs. Swartz's Class)
- Teri Applebaum (Joshua's Mom in Mrs. Swartz's Class)
- Carolyn and Ryan Morris (Alyssa's Mom and Dad in Mrs. Swartz's Class)
- Mary Ann Benitez (Ava's Mom in Mrs. Mabini's Class)
- Raymond and Lisa Cheng (Michael's Mom and Dad in Mrs. Cahalan-Casilla's Class)
Thank you Natalie Johnson (front and center in pic)!

Thank you for joining me in honoring our FABULOUS teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week. All of your notes, pictures, sweet sentiments, were appreciated and brought some tears to the teacher's eyes. They miss their students dearly and your heartfelt messages lifted their spirits.
