A Bayside mom has a call to action for any parents looking to keep their kids safe while passing through on their way to school.
Dear Parents of Maple Dale Students: Last Spring my kids wanted to ride their bikes to school, but I wouldn't let them because I didn't feel that the Regent Road and Brown Deer Road intersection was safe. I witnessed adults being nearly run down while in that crosswalk. Needless to say, my kids were pretty upset with me, so I called the Bayside Police Department and asked about the possibility of "volunteering" to act as a crossing guard for that intersection. Lt. Tom Henkel advised me that we would first have to get an ordinance passed by the Village Board that would allow for crossing guards, then volunteers would need to be recruited and trained. This summer, Lt. Henkel was able to get the ordinance passed and is now offering to email…

Kids voting at Maple Dale, Stormonth and Bayside to pick their top 10.
The future of the Bayside speed reduction signs are now in the hands of kids. All 116 signs are on a tour through Maple Dale Middle School, Stormonth Elementry and Bayside Middle School where students are judging the most creative and attractive signs. On Tuesday, kids at Maple Dale gave the signs their careful eye and students were asked to choose their top 10 favorites. While every student looks for different things in these signs, they all agree that slowing down is important because people can get hurt. "I would slow down. You have to act like you're the person that's about to get it," Daylen Fisher said. The kid-designed, "emotionally intelligent" street signs are part of a multifaceted approach to create safer streets by making …

Students at Maple Dale Middle School learned proper techniques and roadway etiquette Wednesday morning with the help of the Fox Point and Bayside Police Departments. "Did you look both ways?"

Maple Dale fourth grade teacher Mary Hoffmann was out turning the shortened street light for students as they learned to properly signal for a left turn. Fox Point Police Sgt.

Not only students, but teachers even got up to shake their groove thing.
Students from Vieau School, a bilingual school on the south side of Milwaukee, performed Hispanic dances at Maple Dale Middle School Thursday in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. Everyone danced to music with heritage from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Students in first through eighth grades performed and then taught teachers and students at the end of the performance how to complete some of the dance moves. "It's just catching, and you saw it today when the children exploded. That's the enthusiasm that you pass onto your children," said Melissa Lloyd, Maple Dale-Indian Hill PTO member after the performance.
