Park Maitland School Newsletter
This week's Park Maitland School Community case number is 2

Through contact tracing, to date we have had no cases of on campus transmission of COVID-19. This reflects the safety measures that our school has put in place and the cooperation of our school community.
Happy Friday!
We encourage every family to check their ALMA account on a weekly basis.

Checking your account regularly will allow you to view any incidental charges and/or updates to your account and more importantly allow time if there are any adjustments that need to be made prior to the billing due date.

As we are coming to the end of the month, please check now for any unpaid fees. 

Please be reminded that monthly tuition billing will load to your account on the 1st of each month. All charges are due by the 5th of the month. 

If your family is signed up for ACH, all monthly charges will draft on the 3rd. Late payments will incur a 1.5% late fee charge. We appreciate your efforts and partnership to meet these expectations.  

Please do not hesitate to contact the Business Office with any questions and/or concerns.

Virtual Parent Night Reminders
Mark your calendars for "Virtual Parent Nights"!

This week we were excited to begin our Parent Night events. After carefully reviewing our options, we decided that moving to a virtual Parent Night format is best. As you know health and safety are extremely important to us at Park Maitland. Due to the current sensitive circumstance, we feel this is best at the present time.
This will be an informative evening where you will hear from your child’s teachers regarding the curriculum and learning experiences you can expect for your child(ren) this year. Homeroom teachers will be providing information for you including the zoom links needed to participate and the Curriculum Guide that contains valuable information regarding each of your child’s classes.
Thank you for your continued partnership and we look forward to seeing you soon.

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.
