Calling all Maywood artists who would like to brighten up our entryway and let all visitors to Maywood know what we think is most important as a Charger community! We are looking for proposals for a permanent art installation in the main entrance of the school on the theme of inclusion, community and kindness.
Working on this project will be an after school commitment Monday-Thursday for several weeks in February and March. Specific dates will depend on how our work comes along, but plan on February 12-15, February 26-March 1 and March 5-8. For more information, please read her.
Student of the Month:
Beginning in October, each month Grade level and Elective teams will recognize 2 students that show one of the CHARGER characteristics we value. October’s characteristic was Courteous. Last Friday, these students were given certificates of recognition and thanked for their exemplary Charger behavior.
