We are all so excited about the upcoming Science Expo and look forward to seeing you there! To follow up on and clarify previous communication regarding student presentations of projects during this evening, this will apply to 4th -6th grade students only. We do, however, encourage our 3rd graders to circle back to their projects often and absorb all of the praise and love for them that will be flowing throughout the Dino Digs room. Thank you in advance for your enthusiasm and support throughout this incredible journey. See you at the Expo!

50 Years of Fabulous!
Our 50th Anniversary weekend was an exciting and memorable time, shared with many wonderful people that make up Park Maitland School's past, present, and future. Thanks to all who participated in our Alumni tours, our 50th Anniversary auction, and our Gala event, "An Evening on Our Lawn." The last 50 years have been nothing short of magic, and we look forward to 50 more!
Our K-4 students blew us all away in this week's show. It's Not Easy Being A Bunny !
Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Jaworski, has been sharing some fun and exciting tools and lessons with students! 4th graders did an activity on empathy, and 2nd grade students enjoyed her lesson on how life is like Jenga.
Our campus was a sea of silly hats and socks on Monday, as we celebrated Dr. Seuss and Read Across America. Our K-4 students even tried Green Eggs and Ham!
