Parent Night Events
Mark your calendars for "Parent Night"!

Park Maitland School teachers and administrators
invite you to join us for a night of information and fun.

 We cannot wait to see all of you!  
Parent Night will start promptly at 5:00 p.m. in your child's homeroom classroom.

"Club Eagle After Care" will provide special child care for Park Maitland students who need a place to "hang out" as this event is geared toward parents only. Students enrolled in Club Eagle Aftercare can follow their usual aftercare protocol and can be picked up after the Parent Night event at no charge.

If your child is not enrolled in Club Eagle After Care,
you can call or email to reserve your spot.
A charge of $15 will be added to your Alma account for Parent Night.

Dot Day!

We are excited to announce that Park Maitland School will be participating in DOT DAY again this year! Dot Day is based on the book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds. It's a story about a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing".

Students, please help celebrate this day by wearing "dots" on Wednesday,
September 15th.
