Nominating Committee needed!

Welcome to 2015 Maxwell family!  The school year is going fast and before we know it Spring will be here!  We are currently in the process of seeking out a Nominating committee which the Board will appoint to elect the 2015-16 Maxwell PTA officers.

Vacancies at this time include:  President, Treasurer and Membership VP

If you or someone you know would like to help us keep this great PTA going into the future, please submit your name at so the Board may consider you for the Nominating Committee.  Elections are at the May General Membership meeting (tba).  As always - thanks for your support of Maxwell Elementary PTA!

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 Lost & Found collection dates for 2015 will be coming out soon.  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
