It’s time for the 2017 Mustang Stampede! The 1K fun run will take place on April 2 at Mueller Lake Park, and students can register at The Get Moving Crew. It’s easy, and you can even do it on your phone! Then you can invite your family and friends to help support our school.
The PTA has a couple of goals this year. First, we want to involve every kid who wants to be involved in the run. Every child who signs up will get a pedometer immediately, 15 tickets for the teacher experience raffle, and a t-shirt on the day of the run. If you know of a kiddo who needs help signing up please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re also raising funds for the PE department as well as money to get us started moving towards our Big Goal of providing a 1:1 ratio of Chromebooks to kids in Grades 3-6, a mobile computing lab for grades Pre-k-2 and a 3:1 ratio of mobile devices to kids for the whole school.
Maplewood families are invited to participate in our celebration of Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 5! We will be meeting at the pavilion at Patterson Park, corner or Wilshire and Airport Blvd. This is the schedule:
6:50 a.m. Parents, students, teachers and staff meet at Patterson Park

Last year we had a huge crowd meet in the dark at Patterson for Walk to School day, and it was lots of fun walking to Maplewood as it got lighter. See you at the park!
The 2016 Mustang Olympics were held April 25 and 26, and Maplewood’s students had a blast celebrating Earth Day and enjoying a field day. Games included sprints, compost obstacle course, trash dash, save the animals long jump, lights out accuracy throw, and more, ending with a tug of war.The athletes had to read environmental information and then answer a question to participate. Parents brought granola bars and fruit to nourish the competitors, and many came out to cheer. It was a great spring day for outdoor sports!
