A note from Mrs. Zellner and Mr. West

Dear Maple Dale families,


It is hard to believe we are getting ready to wind down this school year with just three weeks left! As we are winding down this year, Mr. West and I are already planning for the next school year. If you have a current preschooler through 3rd grade and are not planning to return to Maple Dale due to a move out of the district, a transfer to another school district, etc. please notify me at zellnerm@sycamoreschools.org if you have not yet notified the office. Thank you for your support in this matter.


Last week's Spring Fling was a resounding success! Mr. West and I enjoyed seeing so many of you and your families for pizza, donuts, dancing, selfies, and more! Thank you to our amazing PTO with a special thank you to Genevieve Stephens, Abby Miller, and Chase Aston for planning this wonderful family event. Also thank you to Melanie Lipps and Jamie Weisbrot for organizing the Mother's Day Plant Giveaway - the flowers were gorgeous this year!


Have a wonderful weekend,

Mindy and Keena
