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. The sale will extend through September 15th.
