Maplewood Elementary School- Information Please :)
by Laura Smith on January 29th, 2015

Hi Neighbors,

I would like information about Maplewood Elementary. I have heard some really great things about the school and some not too great things about the school.

Do your kids go there? What is your opinion of the school? Do you know anything about parent involvement? About first grade specifically? Any comments are welcome and appreciated!

Thanks so much,
Laura

Hi, Laura.

Welcome. I recently wrote a note to prospective Maplewood parents that I'll attach here in PDF. I'll also post the text below. If you use Facebook, please feel free join a couple groups if interested,

1. The Maplewood School Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/maplewoodschool/
2. If you are a Mueller Resident, you might also enjoy the Parents of Mueller group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/160277200693081/

Here is the text of the note if it's easier to read here:

"Maplewood School: A Parent’s Perspective

Breathe deep and relax. You are home…actually your home away from home.
My name is Dusty Harshman, and my family has thoroughly enjoyed the last six years at Maplewood. I believe you will too. Maplewood is a true neighborhood school where families from all walks of life meet. We create bonds with each other, our teachers, our staff, and our community partners. We scrap, we hustle, and we find a way to all get behind the rock of our children’s future and push in the same direction toward betterment.

At Maplewood, we believe strongly in teaching the “whole” child, emphasizing the outdoors, social and emotional development, and learning through the arts, music and movement. Hence, there is a lot of creative energy here…just look at the walls of our hallways and the gardens around our greenhouse. We are a very diverse campus that promotes peace-making, and it shows. Our children are frequently praised in middle school for their composure and kindness.

When you enroll in Maplewood, you bring all your dreams with you. Know that your fellow parents bring their dreams too. See where these dreams lead. During our time here, we marveled at the spirit of working together. As a community, we have planted trees and gardens, constructed picnic tables and a gaga pit, restored a water garden, started a very successful food pantry, brought a dinosaur museum and a planetarium to our school, organized construction of new bike racks and sidewalks, painted murals, enjoyed a myriad of after-school music ensembles and clubs, and grew an endowment fund for the school. Together with our school community…our home away from home.

I encourage you to enroll here with the confidence that we will work together for our children’s future, while building friendships that will span our lifetime.

Dusty Harshman,
Maplewood Parent
