Summer Camp Registration is Open

If you would like to send your child(ren) to our MRCS Summer Camp, registration is now open! The camp runs over two weeks (July 12-23) and features daily “Around the World” themes. Children can participate for one or both weeks to experience a new adventure every day.

Space is limited due to health and safety protocols, so please reserve your space as soon as possible.

To find out more and register, please visit: MRCS Summer Camp »

If you have any questions, please contact Monet Lamphere at m.lamphere@mrcs.ca.


Jump Rope for Heart

Although the priority fundraising focus is currently for our new building project, we are also continuing to support causes outside of our school.

We annually raise money and participate in Heart and Stroke Canada’s Jump Rope for Heart. This Kindergarten to Grade 5 event promotes health and movement. It highlights the importance of being active and draws attention to other healthy habits.

Through Jump Rope for Heart, students learn fun ways to get active for heart health while raising awareness and support for Canada’s Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Here are some things to note about this year’s event:

  • Notices with fundraising info and registration went home to K-5 parents last week
  • All fundraising must be done online this year
  • Register online by going to jumpropeforheart.ca
    • Click “join us” and search for Maple Ridge Christian School
  • Jump-off day is Friday, March 12
  • Fundraising closes Sunday, March 21

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Angela Brompton at a.brompton@mrcs.ca
