FRIDAY DECEMBER 20 - ASSEMBLY
Days before a break are very busy for the attendance office. If you are picking up your student early Friday December 20, please allow plenty of time and bring your ID. We will be on an assembly schedule that day and students will be in the gym during the
assembly starting at 1:30pm. We recommend picking up your student before 1:30pm, as it may take considerable time to track your student down during the assembly.
When someone other than a student’s parent or legal guardian is going to check out a student, write and sign a note that specifies the date and name of the person you’re allowing to sign your student out of Maywood. We will confirm the person’s identity
matches the name you’ve provided at the time of check out. Your student needs to bring the signed note to the main office in the morning before school.
Your student’s safety is our concern.
Emails and phone calls are not acceptable.
Emergency contacts are not legal guardians.
Anyone checking out a student must have a valid picture identification.
MAYWOOD SCHOOL SPIRIT WEAR!

We are excited to offer classic Maywood designs and new products (Maywood SOCKS!) to Maywood students, staff, and community members. The items for sale are perfect for “Charger Wednesdays” at Maywood!
The store is live until Monday, December 16th. Orders will be delivered to students in January. This is not a fundraiser and is not managed by PTSA.
LOST AND FOUND
Is your child missing a coat or lunch box or other item?
Please have your student check the lost and found by the stage in the cafeteria for items they may have left around school. We have a lot of jackets, sweatshirts, lunch boxes, water bottles, umbrellas, etc.
Unclaimed items will be bagged up and donated to a local charity on Friday morning, December 20, 2019.
ELECTRONICS, AIR PODS, EARPHONES
Please think carefully about having your student bring air pods, ear phones and other electronics to school. The office gets asked daily about lost air pods. They are rarely, if ever turned in. Please have your students leave valuables at home or tell them
to lock them in their locker. The school is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
A Note from our PBSES Coach – Nikki McGrath:
This week we taught our seventh lesson from our Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum, Second Step. Sixth grade talked about
What Are Emotions, Seventh grade discussed Challenge: Friendships and Eighth grade talked about
Staying Calm. These lessons are taught during Charger Time.
