Happy Holidays from our school at Maple Lake Academy. We had a great December with many positive activities for students. The Recreation department at both schools hosted a cultural night for the students which was great.
The Girl’s School attended the Festival of Trees in Salt Lake City. The money made at this event is donated to Primary Children’s Hospital which is one of the largest pediatric hospitals in the country.
At the festival, different individuals and organizations created, decorated and donated these trees. The trees were later auctioned to private donors.
The Recreation department and the Boy’s School hosted a Holidays Carnival at a local elementary school. There were several stations with various activities. The students would then rotate around the different stations. The boys had a great time interacting with the elementary students and had a very positive experience.
Many of our students are on a home pass right now for the entire winter break or for parts of it.
Below, are some calendar items to help parents and students prepare for the upcoming weeks.

Many parents have asked me about homework during the Winter Break. If the student is caught up with the assignments that the teachers have given in class, then they will not have homework. If they are missing assignments, then this would be a great time to get caught up.
Students can access all their classes on the Edmodo system from a computer at home or a library. They do not need their school computer to do homework. We do ask that parents strictly supervise any computer use during the break.
