Grade 4 Parents' Night
We're excited to welcome our Grade 4 parents to Parents' Night on Monday. Your special evening is a great opportunity to hear from your child's teachers and learn about their curriculum for the school year. We understand how busy week nights can be, so we have streamlined the format in order to make your time with us more productive and efficient.  We will email a packet the night before each grade level event.

Please arrive  at or before 4:25 p.m. ; the tour will begin promptly at 4:30 p.m.  To help you plan your evening, please keep in mind that these events will last approximately two hours.

CHILD CARE:    Because t hese informative sessions are not geared to children,  Club Eagle AfterCare has arranged for child care for parents who need a place to safely leave their child(ren) during "Parents' Night." If your child does not normally go to AfterCare, and you would enjoy this service for only $15 per child for the entire event, please contact Club Eagle by email at    or by phone at    407-647-3038   , ext. #159. This service is for Park Maitland children only -- no younger siblings, please. Children can either go straight to AfterCare at the end of their school day, or you can arrange to drop them off with the AfterCare staff when you arrive for "Parents' Night.” 

PARKING:     When you arrive for "Parents' Night," please park in any available space on campus. Our teachers and staff will park off campus for your convenience. 

We are looking forward to having each of you join us for a peek into your child's home away from home!
Cady Studios will be on campus to photograph students this Wednesday, September 27th! Students should wear neat, clean uniform tops and bottoms and a happy smile! These are the photos that will be used in the school yearbook.

Parent Chat with Lori Smith
and special guest, Jim West

This important Parent Chat with Attorney, Lori Smith, will focus on the importance of smart social media usage. We also welcome special guest, Child Psychologist, Jim West, who will share the perils of technology addiction.

Wednesday, October 25th

Please sign-in in front of the AAC/gym
and pick up your name tag.

Lori W. Smith of Zimmerman, Kiser, & Sutcliffe, P.A., will be here to discuss how youth can use social media in a smart way. She will highlight successes of young teens who have used social media in school, entertainment, and youth related businesses. Ms. Smith will also highlight common social media mistakes.

In today's world of fast-paced and varied technological communication, children and adults are often surprised at the ramifications of hitting that "send" or "post" button without careful consideration. As a result of Ms. Smith's previous presentations, many adolescents seem to be rethinking their social media and communication choices. 

We ask that at least one parent of our 5th and 6th grade students attend this timely and relevant chat. Mrs. Smith will also meet with grade 5 and 6 students following the parent session
