The Book Fair is off to a great start this year! Thankfully, we aren’t having the weather issues we experienced last year. Family Night was a big success. Thank you to everyone who came to shop and attend the PTA meeting that evening. The Book Fair will be open from 7:15 – 3:00 Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. It will be open from 7:15 – 2:00 on Thursday. Please note that there will be no after-school shopping on the last day because we will be packing books to return to Scholastic. There are still opportunities to volunteer if you are able. Volunteers receive a 25% discount on purchases. If your child is not able to shop at the school, you can also order through our Online Book Fair. Thank you for all of your help and support!
Thanks to Ms. Jones and our staff and parent volunteers for making the Governor’s Cup Academic Team competition at Maxwell a success this Saturday!

Staffing Input Session - Save the Date
Over the next two weeks we will be working with staff and SBDM Council to maximize the resources we have been allocated for next year. Reductions at Maxwell are small, but each year we review our data and goals to make sure the opportunities we provide for our students are yielding results and aligned to the goals of our immersion program. We will be holding a Parent Input/Work Session on Thursday, March 12th, from 5:30-7:00 and scheduling an additional SBDM meeting on March 13th from 3:00-5:00. Please plan on attending the Parent Work session, so you are a part of the process.
