Maxwell Fun Day will be Tuesday, May 26th, 2015 at Woodland Park. Fun day will be similar to past years but with some different activities. Activities will start around 10:30 and will last until about 2:00. Classes will eat lunch before the activities begin and the PTA will be providing snacks and water throughout the afternoon. All classes will be walking to the park that morning. The rain make up day is on May 28th. Students may either pack a lunch or order a box lunch from school.

There have been some questions about sunscreen for Fun Day. We have heard and shared concerns expressed to staff with our district health coordinator, Myron Thompson. I highly recommend that you apply sunscreen in the morning before school. If application at home is not sufficient, our district requires authorization from both parents and a medical provider to administer over-the-counter medications at school. Sunscreen is considered to be in this category. This is to assure we are authorized to administer drugs and are administering them safely for all students. If you have additional questions or comments, you can contact Mr. Thompson directly. This is not under the purview of teachers or a school level decision. For your convenience, I am linking to the policies and the forms families need to complete for students to apply sunscreen at school. All are PDF files.

Class Placement letters were mailed on Thursday. You should receive them by tomorrow if you haven’t already received them today. (We actually had a parent say theirs arrived yesterday. :) ) Move-up day will be held next Wednesday afternoon. Students will report to their current classroom in the morning, and we will let them know about their schedules. The teachers have been preparing to meet their new students and are eager for Wednesday to arrive.
Last Day of School
Friday, May 29, will be the last day of school. Students will be sent home with materials from the year (and report cards). Be patient at dismissal while everyone gives last before-summer-hugs. Please avoid parking in the bus lane next week as well. We know there are challenges with parking, but several grade levels are going on trips, and our busses have not been able to load students.
Save the Dates
Many of you need advance notification so you can arrange your schedules. These are school-wide events or events that impact several levels. Teachers will send class and grade level information in their newsletters.
