A heartfelt thank you to our Park Maitland School Family. With your generosity, we collected 1,542 toys for Toys for Tots...surpassing our goal of 1,500! The toys were loaded onto a Toys for Tots truck at our holiday assembly and will be given to Central Florida children over the holidays.
Flag Football Congratulations!

Congratulations to our 5th and 6th grade Eagles flag football teams on an outstanding season of competition, sportsmanship, team spirit, and fun! A special thank you to coaches, Mr. Wordell and Mr. Curry-Davis, for your help and dedication to the team!
Excited 6th grade students had fun trying to crack the pinata which held clues to this years big play. They couldn't contain their excitement when they found out they would be starring in Beauty and the Beast!

"Jammies and Joy" Newborn Pajama Drive
(Collection will take place in January)
Ainsley G, a caring and compassionate Grade 5 student, heard about an urgent need for newborn pajamas while volunteering at the Foundation for Foster Children in Winter Park. Ainsley approached Ms. Moon with her idea for a newborn pajama clothing drive, "Jammies and Joy." The pajamas collected will be donated to foster babies born into drug-dependent families. These little ones need new pajamas to wear from the hospital to the DCF office to their new foster homes. 

For those who wish to donate, please bring in brand new pajamas to fit newborns and babies up to 6 month-olds. Collection will occur in January, when students return from Winter Break. Donation bins will be located at the front desk.

Message from Park Maitland Security:

I wanted to take this opportunity to send out a big thank you to all of our parents. From the parents of the Daisies and Brownies, to the parents driving students on field trips, to all of our parents who exercise great patience during arrivals or dismissals. 2017 has been such a great year and I know 2018 can be another safe and stellar year at Park Maitland if we all work together. It is because of your efforts and willingness to work with faculty, staff and other parents that makes Park Maitland such a safe and special place.

As we move into the holiday season we want to make sure that we are all safe and have joyous times with our friends and families. Let’s continue to practice the safe habits we demonstrate here at Park Maitland as we travel during the holidays. Please don’t text or engage in any activities that will distract you while driving. Ensuring the safety of you and your family is the greatest gift you can give us here at Park Maitland. Have a great holiday break!

If you have any questions please feel free to email me at: or call (407) 647-3038 x248.
Thanks you in advance for your cooperation, and lets all work together to ensure the safety of the students, parents, faculty and staff of the Park Maitland School!
