School Uniform Reminder

In preparation of summer "growth spurts" and back-to-school shopping (before you know it) we want to be sure you have the most up to date information. Park Maitland school uniforms can be purchased from one of our approved uniform providers:


All uniforms must be embroidered with the Park Maitland logo:



Uniforms with the old logo can still be worn in the upcoming school year. Also, our Uniform Swap is still available for parents to go check out gently used items (and to donate items for future use). If you are interested in scheduling a time to visit the Uniform Swap, please call or text Danae Pollack at
407-754-5518.

* All uniform swap donations must be taken directly to the swap. Please do not bring old uniforms onto campus to donate.
Please help our school by collecting Box Tops for Education! Clip and save Box Tops from various Products. Each Box Top earns 10 cents…only 10 Box Tops = $1.00. It adds up quickly, and who would want to throw money away? Please clip and save to turn in to your child’s homeroom teacher in the Fall!

CLICK HERE to learn about exciting changes coming to the Box Top program!
All library books are due back to the library at this time!
If you are in need of good reliable babysitting, pet sitting, lawn care, or odd jobs over the summer contact Christine Talbert! Her (Park Maitland Alumni) wonderful children are available. Call or text 407-590-7676.
