Every week students are exploring a variety of academics, technology, and the arts. Please enjoy some of our favorite traditions and new traditions happening at Park Maitland School.
Elementary students and faculty came to school dressed in polka dots to celebrate International Dot Day, a celebration of creativity inspired by 'The Dot' written by Peter H. Reynolds. It is a day to think about ways in which we can use our special talents to make our mark and make the world a better place.
In Ms. Leider's art class, our first grade students painted dots using concentric circles in honor of Dot Day!
In a sweet tradition, students matched their ribbons to find their JFF. After introductions, JFFs bonded in their first game of dodgeball and ate snacks afterward. We look forward to seeing our JFFs continue to reconnect each month.
This week, Ms. F from the world of the letter people, came to town to visit our K4 friends. K4 students had their first parade, Ms. F's funny feet parade.
Movie Night
Our Super Seniors kicked off their unforgettable year with a long standing tradition - movie night! Students had a special on-campus viewing of "Sherlock" to kick off their mystery unit in Language Arts class.
Airplanes in the Air
First grade students in Ms. Nepple's Social and Science class learned about the Scientific Method this week. Students recorded using the six steps to analyze their data and finding a conclusion on which airplane flew the furthest.
Third Graders have been working all summer reading The Chocolate Touch. This week our students finished their unit through a personalized presentation for their Chocolate Touch project.
