New Benches


Our benches have arrived!  Thank you to all Maxwell families for participating in this yearlong effort!
•1200 lbs. of plastic caps were collected and sorted at Maxwell.
•Green Tree Plastics converted our caps into 3 benches.
•Maxwell PTA also bought a recycled picnic table from Green Tree Plastics.
Maxwell families donated $681 in our Penny War so Mary Todd Elementary was able to convert 800 lbs. of plastic caps into 2 benches.

Journey Potraits

Journey Portraits will be sent home this week with all students.  They follow all the school pictures up to this year (5th graders who have been at Maxwell throughout will have K-5th grade pics) on one print.  There are multiple choices and really sweet layouts and backgrounds.  They are already printed and in the packets; please send back the prints you do not want and the money for the prints you keep.  There is an on-line payment option as well.  Enjoy!

Make-Up Day

As you know, winter weather led to a one-hour early dismissal on Thursday, January 5, 2017 and a snow day on Friday, January 6, 2017 for all of our students. At this point, we do not have to make up the one hour early dismissal, but we do have to make up the missed school day.

To make up the missed instructional time, we will take the first weather make-up day that was built into the calendar.  We will now be going to school on March 17, 2017, which was originally scheduled as a day off for students. Please mark your calendars for this change. March 17, 2017 will now be a regular school day for our students.
