Maxwell Kids in the Community
Artwork created by students in Spanish Culture class and 5th grade will be displayed during the Living Arts and Science Center's "Day of the Dead Festival." Students will be at the event teaching the community how to create “El ojo de dios” and sharing their projects which are part of an “altares” exhibit. If you have the opportunity to stop by, it is a wonderful community cultural event. Thank you Sra. Arteaga and Sra. Alquicira for your instruction and encouragement which led to our students opportunity to present in this event.
If you want more details about the event see the link below.
Don’t forget to set your clocks back on Saturday Night/Sunday Morning (11/2).
Thank You PTA!
Thank you PTA for organizing our first Weird Science Night. There was a great turnout and our children had a wonderful evening of learning and fun through hands-on experiments and demonstrations.
As the weather turns cooler, please remember that our building does not open until 7:15 as that is when staff arrives and are available to supervise students. Students go directly to their classrooms at 7:15 and instruction begins at 7:45. We worry that we are still having some students being dropped off at 6:30. Though always a safety issue, with cold weather around the corner there are additional concerns. If you arrive before 7:15, make sure you stay with your child.
Save the Date
Our K-3 students are invited to Bedtime Story Night on November 20th from 6-7. Look for additional information in future e-mails and web postings.
All food is donated to God’s Pantry Food Bank and is distributed to Fayette County Families. This is a great way to introduce to our students power of giving. We use this annual event to teach our “Cattitude” of Kindness and reinforce the 21st Century Learning skills of Collaboration, Global Awareness and Empathy. At this time, the Food Bank is especially in need of canned vegetables and fruits, canned soup, and peanut butter in plastic jars. Have your child take the items to their classroom, and they will be brought down as a class in order to have a teachable moment.
As you are dropping off or picking up your child, take a minute to look at the beautiful vegetables growing in our Community Garden. Students in our leadership class, led by Mrs. Jones, have worked tirelessly since last spring writing a grant, designing the garden, planting, and tending the garden. We are looking forward to the Fall Harvest on November 7th.
Picture retakes will be November 13th.
