Park Maitland 3rd - 6th grade math teams competed in Perennial Math’s 2018 Winter Dash Virtual Tournament. This live team competition with schools from other states allowed our students to submit answers and receive immediate feedback and tournament results. One of our 3rd grade teams finished third; one of our 5th grade teams finished second, and our 4th graders won the virtual tournament for their grade level. Thanks to Mr. Driscoll for organizing his fun and educational event!
All aboard! 2nd grade students dove into the magic of The Polar Express this week. They experienced the true magic of imagination on Tuesday when their classroom was transformed to hear the story and enjoy some hot cocoa. On Wednesday they headed over to the Enzian to watch the movie together!
We are so proud of our Singing Eagles Glee Club and their many performances over the past week. From the Winter Park tree lighting ceremony and the parade, to serenading our friends at the Mayflower, to their winter concert... Their angelic voices continue to captivate!
6th Graders enjoyed a special evening at the Shakespeare Theater for A Christmas Carol . What a wonderful way to celebrate this holiday season!
Third grade students participated in a quick maker challenge during their Design Thinking classes this past week meant to test and develop their 21st century skillset. Problem solving, perseverance, collaboration and critical thinking where just some of the few skills put to the test as they built the tallest towers using very limited supplies and time! 
Chase S. (K-4) spent 2 hours ringing the bell for Salvation Army donations outside of Publix on Aloma Ave. This event was organized by the Orange County East-Winter Park Rotary Club, and they are proud to share that they earned a record number of donations on this day. They attribute this success to sweet Chase and his bell ringing!
A small group of Park Maitland families came together to collect toy donations for Florida Hospital. They were able to donate 75 toys total! Thank you to The Reuss Family, The Porter Family, The Gellein Family, The Cohen Family, The Hornsby Family, The DiGiacomo Family, and The Male Family.
We are always so proud to hear of the ways our sweet students give back to the community. 'Tis the season!
