Friends,

Please mark your calendars for April 24 for our annual Taste of Maxwell Spring Festival, a long standing tradition at our school. This year, the TOM planning committee decided to try a few new things ensuring that this night not only celebrates our diverse and wonderful school population but also the neighborhood that we learn and play in.

From the Food Trucks out front to the auction items within, we really wanted to focus on what makes our community special. I hope that you’ll visit our PTA webpage (http://www.maxwellpta.org) and learn more about the businesses that helped make this event possible.

In addition, the high school students that you’ll see at TOM are all from Bryan Station High School and have been engaged in the Spanish Immersion Program, progressing through Maxwell or Dixie Elementary, to BSMS, and then on to BSHS. Ask them about their educational experiences and any other questions you might have about the program!

Finally, I can’t say enough good things about the parents and teachers who have supported this endeavor throughout the planning process and for those parents who have raised their hands to volunteer at the event. A special note of gratitude to:

Ann Grant – Bake Sale Coordinator
Beckie Lehmann -  Class Art Project Coordinator
Crystal Wieland – Donation Solicitations
Marisa Aull – Food Truck Coordinator
Tina Bryant – Games and BSHS Volunteer Coordinator

If you have any questions about this event, please don’t hesitate to call/text me at 859-229-1433 or email me at rwren@rmhclexington.com. I can’t wait to see you there!

Sincerely,

Rebecca Wren
mother to Caroline (Chamorro/Adler team, 3rd grade) and Benjamin (incoming Kindergartener)

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!

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 ptamaxwell@gmail.com.

Collection dates:  March 27, 2015, April 30, 2015 and May 22, 2015
