Maple Avenue to celebrate Red Ribbon Week

Maple Avenue will celebrate Red Ribbon Week  Oct. 24-28. Red Ribbon Week is a national celebration in which our school community will join together to show support in keeping our children, our schools, and our communities healthy.

All students are encouraged to participate in the “Fuel Your Bus with Healthy Habits” activities.

• Oct. 24 – Fuel your brain with lots of sleep and wear pajamas
• Oct. 25 – Fuel your passion and wear your favorite sporting, activity or team clothing
• Oct. 26 – Fuel your heart and wear red
• Oct. 27 – Fuel your future and dress-up as your future career
• Oct. 28 – Fuel your body with exercise and wear your harvest clothing for the Harvest Stomp

Please remember to support the fifth grade food drive during Red Ribbon Week! Non-perishable healthy foods and snacks in their original packaging may be dropped off in the collection boxes located in the front lobby. All of the food collected will be donated to the Sussex Food Pantry.

5 ways to stay connected at Maple Avenue

Our newsletter, MapleAveNews, is sent to parents each Friday during the school year to inform you about what is happening at school and provide opportunities for involvement. Here are some tips to keep you connected and informed:

  • Look for the links under Community Events in the lower right corner to find afterschool and community activities for your children. Paper flyers are no longer sent home with students.
  • Whitelist addresses with our domain ( by adding them to your contacts or configure your junk or SPAM filters so they are recognized as safe.
  • Check your email junk folder if you have not received a school newsletter in a week.
  • Do not use the unsubscribe option at the bottom of our email messages. Instead, go into the Infinite Campus Portal and change your email address or settings. When an email is unsubscribed using the option on the newsletter, the district is not able to send to that address in the future. This includes messages sent from our school and all other communication from the district or other schools.
  • Be aware that if you forward a message, the recipient is able to unsubscribe your email address from our system without your knowledge.
