This month at Park Maitland we will be focusing on Habit #7:
"Sharpen the Saw"

To "sharpen the saw" means that you are taking time to find balance in all areas of your life - physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional. This balance will help you feel well and be more successful in all that you do.

Share THIS video with your children to help them remember what it means to "Sharpen the Saw!"

National Standardized Test

Grades 4 - 6: April 10-12 (During 1st and 2nd Period)

Grades 1 - 3: April 23-26 (During 1st and 2nd Period)

We work very hard to teach your child well. They do not have to focus on preparing for this test. No particular "prep" at home or school is necessary. We do, however, encourage your child to relax, eat a good breakfast, and arrive to school on time during their ITBS testing week. 
Don't miss the 5th grade performance of Shrek the Musical!

Our 6th Grade Charity Car Wash event was a big success! We want to say THANK YOU to all that attended and donated to this very worthy cause. Because of your participation we were able to raise $1761.49 for the Boys and Girls Club of Central Florida!
We received this very heartfelt Thank You card from one of the students at the Boys and Girls Club. It reads:

"My Name is Zanaria and I'm in 4th grade at Hungerford Elementary School. I wanted to send you a letter to say thank you for helping my Boys & Girls Club. I come to my club every day after school and I love it so much. It's my favorite place to go to have fun with my friends and learn something new. Thank you for getting your whole school to do a car wash for me and my club. That is so nice of you! I hope you can come over some time. I would love to show you all the fun games we have.
Thank you! Your friend,
Our 1st-grade Daisy Scout troop planted a butterfly garden in our 1st-grade circle area after school on Thursday. They dedicated this garden to Park Maitland School for almost 50 years of providing "roots and wings" to students!

Be sure to stop by and check it out the next time you are on campus.
We are so Proud of our Park Maitland students for their hard work and dedications to making a difference in our community!

Our 6th-grade students really WOW'd with their Fabergé Egg projects for Ms. Finwall's class
