7:30 PM Board of Education Meeting
Grade 7 students combined their exploration of cut paper as an Art medium with their learning about the celebration of "The Day of The Dead" in Mexico.
This year we continue our W.I.N. (Whatever I Need) period in grades 6 and 7 to meet students’ needs by providing additional time for enrichment in Science and Social Studies and for intervention instruction in English Language Arts (ELA) or Mathematics. The programming will also provide an advisory/character education period at least twice a month to address the social and emotional needs of all students and to strengthen relationships within the school community.
At 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 15, 2016, our annual Back-To- School Night will take place for all families of Maplewood Middle School 6th, 7th and 8th graders. The evening will begin with a version of our morning broadcast on live closed-circuit TV.

Thank you for joining us at our annual “School in Action Night” last Thursday! We hope you enjoyed the special performances by our Honors Jazz Ensemble and the School Choir.
