As we prepare for 2014 - 2015:
Friday May 9th is the day all schools have agreed to do their School Transition Visits. Our Gr. 8's will be going to YCMHS and Gr. 6 students will be coming to Maple Grove. MGEC Gr. 7's will be having a regular school day.
In preparation for this meeting, Maple Grove will be having a Parent Information Session for Gr. 6 Parents, on Wednesday May 7th from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm. We will be sending home information packages and registration forms for Art/Music selection, prior to May 7th, as this will help us with our planning.
If there are any questions please feel free to contact us.
NEW! Online Guidance Self-Referral Form
Students can now refer themselves to the guidance office by completing a secure and confidential online form. Follow the link at the top of this page called Counselling Referral and also on the Counsellor's Corner page. Referrals to the guidance office can be made from any internet-enabled device by completing all of the information on the form and then clicking 'submit'.
Just a reminder that we need 5 parent and 5 staff volunteers to chaperone for the dances to be successful.
The following is a list of school dances for the rest of the year:
February 13th - 7:00-9:30
March 20th - 7:00-9:30
April 24th - 7:00-9:30
June 23rd - 7:00-10:00
The following dress code was implemented in September 2003 by the Tri-County School Board with descriptors added by MGEC 2012:
1. Students are expected to wear clothes appropriate for the time, place and occasion (an elementary/junior high 7 and 8 school setting).
2. A student's dress and appearance shall:
a. be safe, appropriate and not disrupt or interfere with the educational process;
b. recognize that extremely brief garments such as tube tops, crop tops, net tops, halter tops, spaghetti straps, plunging necklines (front and/or back), skirts or shorts shorter than mid-thigh (approximately three inches above the knee), and see-through garments are NOT appropriate at any time - including school dances;
c. ensure that underwear is completely covered with outer clothing;
d. not include the wearing of hats in the classroom except for a medical or religious purpose or for special promotions within the school such as "hat day".
3. Any student who refuses to adhere to the dress code shall be subject to discipline up to and including an in-school suspension for the day. Any student who repeatedly fails to comply with the dress code shall be subject to further discipline.
Request to Leave Early
If a student is not feeling well, they are to contact a parent/guardian via the phone at the Main Office. They will then be given a note to put in the home room's day book so the teachers receiving that class are aware that the student has left early.
Also, students leaving before the end of the day, or arriving after the day has started, need to check in at the main office to either sign out or sign in. This allows us to keep track of where the students are.
If your son/daughter is home due to an illness and you would like their homework, please call the school before 9am and it will be put on the announcements in the morning. That way all teachers will be notified and any work missed can be brought to the office for someone to pick up by the end of the day.
Bus notes to travel on another bus will not be permited.
