Welcome Back Maxwell Families!
2015-2016 Magnet Application
The application for G/T programs, magnet schools, and specialized programs is now on-line. Though siblings are automatically accepted, families MUST apply online to be in the applicant pool. If you have a child who will enter school next August, please apply now. It's not a first-come, first-served system. Applications may be submitted anytime during the window (through Oct. 7), and all receive equal consideration. www.fcps.net/magnet
Maxwell Information Night
Prospective 2015-2016 families: Please join us at Maxwell, September 10th at 6 p.m., to learn about the Spanish Immersion Program! The meeting will be held in the cafeteria.
The change in traffic pattern with the creation of a right-turn only lane at the intersection of Maxwell and Woodland has added challenges to our already congested drop-off area. An additional crossing guard and a traffic officer have been added to assist motorists during this transitional time. Please remember to follow the crossing guards’ directions. Also, remember to pull all the way down to the end of the bus lane. We have staff there to greet your child and make sure they get from the car to the school doors safely. If you have a kindergarten student who still needs help, let the staff who opens your car door know. We are more than happy to walk them to their classes until they are confident.
The staff at Maxwell will be sponsoring a school-wide fundraiser to generate revenue to meet our goal of having an iPad in the hand of every student. The more we use instructional technology, the more aware we become of the opportunities it can provide for differentiated instruction in all content areas and exposure to authentic Spanish culture and language opportunities. We will be selling Tervis Tumblers with a Maxwell logo (or a UK logo) and a variety of cakes. Fliers will be sent home on Friday, and the sale will extend through September 12th.
Christina Montague will be our PTA President for the 2014-2015 school year. Learn more about Christina and your new PTA board members in first edition of the Cougar Chronicle.
