What a great night for baseball and for our students!

Maplewood’s community night was this past Saturday, September 14th at Citi Field, and our students really hit a home run! Maplewood 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders took to the field as they sang the National Anthem before the ball game began.

“Maplewood students, led by our dynamic music teacher Mrs. Vanessa Melillo, sounded fabulous singing the National Anthem prior to the start of the game,” shared new Maplewood Principal Dr. Gayle Steele. “They looked great and make all of us proud!”
