April 2012
 Dear Parents and Community Members:

As you know, as per a new law, the Maple Shade Board of Education voted to move the school election to November, to coincide with the general election. This also means that, because our 2012-13 budget is under the state cap of 2% for a tax increase, there will not be a vote on the budget.

You will find a presentation for the 2012-13 budgethereon our website. Please take some time to review it. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
 
Sincerely,
 Michael Livengood, Superintendent

Coach of the Year: Kelly Rose

 

 


Congratulations to Maple Shade High School Field Hockey coach Kelly Rose who was named the 2011 Burlington County Times Field Hockey Coach of the Year. Ms. Rose helped lead the Wildcats to a 15-3-1 season, posting the best team winning percentage in Burlington County. According to the Burlington County Times, "She drove the Wildcats to be better on both sides of the ball. Maple Shade scored 18 more goals this fall than in 2010. The 2011 Wildcats allowed 28 fewer goals. The Wildcats were sound fundamentally, hard-working and a joy to watch on both ends of the field. Not bad for a fill-in coach."
