District Science Fair
Congratulations to Frances Kilgore for her 2nd place win at the District Science Fair! We are very proud of all our Maxwell participants: Denali King, Frances Kilgore, Caroline Overman, Sydney Brown, Steven Harris, Parker Jenkins, Christopher Ramos, and Nicole Nunez-Turcios.
At Maxwell we strive to provide students with opportunities to enrich not only their academic development, but their social, emotional, and cultural development as well. Leadership students are excited to announce an initiative to create “Care Packages of Love,” for men, women, and children in need at Lexington’s Hope Center on Friday, February 12th. We want to make the biggest impact possible, so we have decided to put forth this community service project as a schoolwide initiative that students at all grade levels will have an opportunity to be involved in.
Beginning on Monday, February 1st, each grade level will be collecting items for care packages that will be assembled on “I Love to Learn Day,” Friday, February 12th. Our goal is for each grade level to collect enough materials to assemble 20 care packages. If we attain our goal at each grade level, as a school we will be able to donate 120 care packages for the Hope Center!
I would like to introduce you to Debbie James. She will be serving in my former position, as interim TGPE coach. She comes to us with a lot of experience in many different positions. She is a former classroom and G/T teacher, a reading interventionist, and principal. She will be here full time, and we are so excited for her to share her knowledge. Please make her feel welcome as you see her around the school.
The Book Fair Is Coming!
The Book Fair is coming, and we need your help! The Book Fair is in need of volunteers to be successful. Volunteers typically help student find books, run the cash register, straighten up the area and return books to the tables and shelves, and/or read aloud to students.
Book Fair Dates: February 24 – March 3, 2016
Shopping Hours: 7:15am – 3:00pm
We would especially love to see you on February 25, 2016 when our school hosts Book Fair Family Night from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.
We look forward to having you participate in our Fair, and remember, all purchases benefit our school. We need lots of volunteers to make the Book Fair happen. You can sign up to help directly, or you can email Mr. Brewer with any questions or to volunteer. All volunteers receive a discount on book purchases. You can get more information or order books online at our Book Fair Webpage too. Thank you!
