It’s Charger 100 time! This is one of the ways we recognize and reinforce student efforts on their academics, being a contributing member of our community, and demonstrating positive behaviors. We are excited to see all of the great ways our students are earning their PTA sponsored reward on Monday, December 18th. In order to be eligible, students must return their completed Charger 100 form to their SDR teacher by Wednesday, December 13th.Our hope is that this provides a great opportunity to celebrate your student’s success with him/her and plan for future improvements. Since we celebrate Charger 100 every trimester, there will be two more chances to participate this year.
If you have any questions, please contact Nikki McGrath, PBSES - Student Support Coach, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 here.
