Welcome Page

WELCOME TO MAPLE GROVE ELEMENTARY!

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year at Maple Grove Elementary.  I am looking forward to working with students and parents this year.  We have an outstanding staff and a terrific PTA to help meet children’s needs.  Our goal is to help all students achieve at the highest possible level, while keeping them safe in an orderly environment. 

My name is Rick Bollman and I am the principal at Maple Grove.  I have been employed in the Boise School District for 37 years as a teacher, coach or administrator.  I received my B.A in Elementary Education at Boise State University and my M.Ed. in School Administration at the University of Idaho. This is my nineteenth year as a school principal, previously working at three other elementary schools in the Boise District.  I was a classroom teacher for thirteen years before entering administration and view myself as an instructional leader.  I enjoy working with students, teachers and parents at the elementary school level.  I work to establish a positive climate where the greatest learning opportunities are made available for students.  I strive to do my best to relate with others by listening to different viewpoints that would benefit student success.  Professionalism is very important to me and I promote teamwork and fairness in a community environment.  I believe that students, parents and staff all have an important role to play in establishing a successful school community. 

At Maple Grove, we share the motto as the Boise School District: “Educating Today for A Better Tomorrow.” Our school philosophy states:

“ …each child should have the opportunity to achieve success and develop a feeling of self worth. Through varied teaching techniques the Maple Grove staff will provide each student with the skills necessary for cumulative learning, a sense of worth leading to social maturity, and the means to develop a set of moral and ethical values.” 

This philosophy is dependent on positive staff and parent relations. Community support is essential in helping to provide the best opportunities for students to learn and grow. Our desire is to keep the lines of communication open. This will be done through weekly newsletters and reminders.

As we strive to help every child be successful this year, we are seeking a commitment from parents in the following areas:

      -          Setting aside at least 20 minutes each night for a child to read or be read to

-          Helping students to arrive at school on time every day and be in attendance every minute if possible -“Miss A Minute, Miss A Lot!”

-          Providing an environment for your child to complete assignments at home

-          Encouraging students to improve their achievement on mandated tests

-          Establishing regular communication between home and school

-          Recognizing the quality staff at Maple Grove

Please feel free to contact me or any of our staff if we can assist you this year.

Thank you for your positive support!
