Outstanding Educator Award
The Maplewood PTA chose to honor Ann Schumacher, with the Outstanding Educator Award this year! Mrs. Schumacher has inspired countless 3rd/4th grade Quest students at Maplewood. She has a real gift for identifying the unique needs of her students and challenging them in ways tailored to their personalities. Her ability to help parents and students navigate through the Highly Capable program while simultaneously completing her program in administration makes her a tremendous asset to Maplewood. Thank you, Mrs. Schumacher, for devoting your time and talent to our students. You are outstanding in every way.
Outstanding Advocate Award
The Maplewood PTA chose to honor our Principal, Susan Walton, with the Outstanding Advocate Award_ this year! Ms Walton has been a super supporter of our PTA for many years. She sets high expectations for her "buddies" and helps them reach their goals. She is constantly teaching Maplewood students kindness, manners, and respect for others. Our students, parents, and staff are all better for having Ms Walton at Maplewood.
