Adios Hunger Celebration!

To recognize students participation in our Adios Hunger Food Drive, we will have a school-wide pajama day on Monday, November 24th. First and 5th grade students will have a dance party to celebrate their grade levels bringing the greatest amount of food. Thank you to all who donated.

Maxwell's Lost IS Found!

Lost and Found tip - As the temperatures drop more and more coats and ending up in the Lost and Found bin. PTA looks through them to check for names so the items may be returned to their owners. I know our worlds are already busy, but taking a moment to mark your child's coat, lunchbox and other personal items could ensure they are not donated or gone forever! Thanks parents!

Maxwell Elementary PTA will be collecting  Lost & Found items Tuesday, November 25, 2014 at 2:45 dismissal.  The Lost & Found bin is located at the back of the school under the PTA Bulletin board.  For those of you who are interested, Maxwell Elementary PTA donates the items not claimed by students to the Lexington Woman's Club.  The Lexington Woman's Club provides gently used clothing to more than 1,000 Fayette County school children annually.  For more information on claiming, collecting and donating items, contact

Parking Know How

PARKING UPDATE:  After speaking to Charles Patterson, the owner of Chatham's, today, he indicated Maxwell parents MAY park in the Chatham's lot; there are a few spaces that belong to Lift and maybe some other businesses, but if you stay in Chatham's parking you should be fine. As I mentioned in an earlier post "PTA's position on this is for all Maxwell parents to follow city rules and ordinances while trying to park your vehicle for pickup and drop off. Maxwell is a unique school and one of the drawbacks is parking. PTA is and continues to work with all Woodland Triangle businesses to welcome unity and strength in community."
