Martian Half Marathon Invades Dearborn
The Martian half marathon took place on Saturday, April 9 at Ford Field. Dearborn schools had 1,000 kids participate and Maples had 57 kids! The weather certainly didn’t cooperate with us with low temperatures and even snow at the start. But that didn’t stop Maples. All the kids were so excited to run and they were amazing. After completing a 1.2 mile run, all the kids received a medal and a goodie bag. Our very own Mrs. Wolski completed the 10k (6.2 miles) in 43 minutes and 31 seconds. She was the first female finisher! Now that’s out of this world.
Mrs. Wolski and Mrs. Wozniak would like to thank all the parents and families that brought the kids out. We couldn’t do it without you!  Be sure to wear your Martian Marathon shirt to school on Tuesday. Click on the link below to see photos from the event.

We will shed light on this important topic and discuss ways to identify the signs of cyber bullying. We hope to see you there!
