The students at Maplewood participate in Playworks during recess. Playworks is a program that promotes environments of respect and inclusion while creating healthy communities through healthy play. During the school year, we will be providing positively structured, inclusive games to play on the playground so that students are safer and have more fun at recess. For these games to be successful, only the equipment provided by the school will be allowed at school. Please encourage your student(s) to leave personal playground equipment at home as they will not be able to use it while they are at school.
We will also have assemblies throughout the year to recognize positive behavior. Students who have no absences or tardies (excused or unexcused), no major or minor office referrals, and are showing extraordinary effort and/or growth – as determined by the teacher- are eligible to receive a Principal’s Excellence Award award. Parents will be notified when their child will be receiving a Principal’s Excellence Award.
