  • Mario the Maker Magician Assemblies

    Posted by Karen Buell on 5/17/2019 4:00:00 PM

    Maplebrook Families,  

     

    Next Tuesday, we will be welcoming Mario the Maker Magician, for two assemblies.  A brief description from his website: As seen on Sesame Street and Sprout, Mario "the Maker Magician" Marchese is a New York based, touring children's performer known for his DIY robotic creations, handmade props, and signature slapstick character. He has been touted “the best kids magician in the world!!” by David Blaine and was the opening act for the most recent 2018 David Blaine live tour.  Mario’s show is an upbeat, hilarious, and very interactive experience that leaves children and families inspired to nurture their own creative paths.  We feel very fortunate to welcome this renowned performer to Maplebrook.  Many thanks to Home & School for sponsoring this performance!

    We Are Maplebrook!

  • Thank You!

    Posted by Karen Buell on 5/10/2019 4:00:00 PM

    Maplebrook Families,  


    Wow!  We certainly feel appreciated!  On behalf of the Maplebrook staff, thank you so much for your kind words, gifts, food, treats, and support during Teacher Appreciation Week.  Our community is incredibly thoughtful and caring! Thank you! Also, thanks to all that attended FunFest last Friday. While it was a little cool and there was a little drizzle, overall it was a lovely evening.  Your financial support is very much appreciated - it goes towards field trips, assemblies, activities (such as roller skating), gifts (such as Birthday Books for students) and more! To those of you that volunteered, we can’t thank you enough for creating such a memorable event for our students.

    We Are Maplebrook!

  • Spring Weather Just in Time for FunFest

    Posted by Karen Buell on 5/3/2019 4:00:00 PM

    Maplebrook Families,  

     

    After a week of rain, it was great to see a little sunshine today.  This change in weather happened just in time for FunFest! Hopefully you will be able to join us sometime in the 4:30-7:00 p.m. window.  In advance, thank you to everyone that helped coordinate the event, and thank you to all that are volunteering your time tonight. Without your help, we wouldn’t be able to create such a fantastic experience for our Wildcats.

    We Are Maplebrook!

  • Celebrating our Maplebrook Community

    Posted by Karen Buell on 4/19/2019 4:00:00 PM

    Maplebrook Families, 

    One of the best parts of Maplebrook is when our community comes together.  Yesterday, we brought all of our students together for a quick assembly where we celebrated that “We Are Maplebrook!” while also talking to our students about the GLOW Run.  Certainly it’s not required for you, or your student(s) to participate, but it is for a good cause, and on May 18th, it will be fun to see many members of our community gather and participate in the race.  See the entry below for more details.

    We Are Maplebrook!

  • What a Busy Week!

    Posted by Karen Buell on 3/8/2019 4:00:00 PM

    Maplebrook Families,

     

    We’ve had a great week at Maplebrook!  On Tuesday, our band and orchestra students sounded fantastic at their concert.  Many thanks to Dr. Carroll and Ms. Reynolds for their continued work in helping our Wildcat musicians.  We held an amazing STEM Fair last night! All of our participants demonstrated outstanding scientific inquiry and communication skills.  Thanks to all that volunteered and helped make it a great event including Mrs. Bass and our Home & School Chairs, Erin Brignac, Rachna Prasad, and Leah McGrath.  Finally, we wrapped up the week by welcoming our future Wildcats and their families at Kindergarten Preview today. We look forward to seeing them again in the fall!

  • Making Plans for Next School Year

    Posted by Karen Buell on 3/1/2019 4:00:00 PM

    Maplebrook Families,


    The third trimester has begun and while we stay focused on the current school year, we must also begin making plans for next school year. This includes ordering materials, prioritizing summer improvements to our facility, hiring staff as needed and much, much more.  Believe it or not, our teachers will soon begin the process of class groupings for the 2019-2020 school year. Yesterday, your student came home with this letter which briefly discusses our process.  As mentioned in the letter, I ask that you trust our staff in the creation of balanced classes; however we do want to provide you with an opportunity to provide any information that you feel is pertinent to our process.  One of the most joyous parts of next year’s planning is the welcoming of our incoming kindergartners at our annual Kindergarten Preview which will occur next Friday. We look forward to meeting the Maplebrook Class of 2025!

    We Are Maplebrook!

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges on 6/27/2014
    FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
     
    FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
     
    The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
    1. Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
    2. Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
    3. Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
    4. Effective communication and community relations.
    Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
     
    District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting.  To watch that presentation, please click here
