On Friday, February 6, 2015 from 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. Maxwell Elementary PTA will be hosting the NAWIC (National Association of Women in Construction) Block Kids Building Program.  We are super excited about this folks.  Meadowthorpe Elementary hosted the event last year. We will be getting the registration form and guidelines out in backpacks after Winter break.  This program is for all grade levels (K-5).  Registration forms will go out in backpacks and via email after Christmas break.  The deadline for registration will be Friday, January 16th.  To see a brochure on this event, click here.  For more information about NAWIC, click here.  


Our Listserv is overrun with out of date emails.  It's very difficult to navigate every time we need to send something out. If you are a member, you automatically receive our correspondence; if you are not a member or just want to stay in touch, please enter your email below by December 31, 2014 so that we may refresh our listserv for the New Year! Thanks

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 Friday, December 19, 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
