    Welcome to 7/8 Maple!


    We are very excited to welcome students and families to our team. We are looking forward to getting to know all of you and working together for a successful year. 



    Parent-teacher communication is a key factor in student success. We encourage all parents to complete the Parent Contact Form on our webpage to be added to our team email list. In addition, we ask parents and students to both join our Remind Text App.(include your name and students name) to be notified of upcoming events, tests, or activities. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the school year. Our team call in time is on Thursday from 10:00-10:30. However, you can also contact individual teachers or by simply emailing us at the addresses listed below.

    Many people are confused about the set up of our team. 7/8 Maple consists of three 7th grade classes and two 8th grade classes. As much as we encourge all of our students to bond, collaborate and maintan positive interactions we teach two different grade levels and curricula. We do whole team motivational activities throughout the year, but students on our team will be taught, challenged and supported on their specific academic level. To furthur learn about your specific grade level on our team please check out the grade appropriate welcome letter below. 

    You can easily check your child's grades on Sapphire. You can access Sapphire from the district website main page at www.esasd.net. Just click on Sapphire in the left column. Next go to the Community Portal in order to create an account. Please note that it may take one to two days for your account to become active.

    Feel free to send us an e-mail anytime. You may select our emails below or from our specific webpages. As teachers we promise to model and enforce school and life expecations. With your help and support will we will do our best to make your child more successful in school this year and instill good study habits that will last a lifetime. We look forward to this academic partnership with you and your families to create a fantastic year.
