World Diabetes Day
Maxwell will be commemorating World Diabetes Day on Wednesday, November 14. Students and staff are asked to wear blue on this day. World Diabetes Day is designed to bring attention to the importance of taking intentional actions to confront diabetes as a global health concern.
Thanksgiving lunch will be served on Monday, November 12 for students in grades K, 2, and 5. Students in grades 1,3, and 4 will have their meal served on Tuesday, November 13. Families are invited to share in this special meal. Please see communication from your child’s teacher regarding specific meal start times. The cost of lunch is $4.50 for adults and $2.50 for children. You will be able to purchase your ticket in the foyer on the day of the event.
Thank you for supporting your child’s participation in special dress days last week to coincide with KY SAFE Schools Week. The Kentucky Center for School Safety has compiled some parent resources to enable parents to have meaningful conversation with their children regarding school and internet safety. Please find below a link to the resources: https://www.kycss.org/ssw.php#students-parents
During the recent Breakfast with the Principals we discussed extracurricular activities and clubs. Maxwell currently offers a variety of activities and clubs that are sponsored by teachers in the school. We are always looking for additional opportunities to offer meaningful educational experiences for students beyond the regular school day. In an effort to identify student interest and family support, we have developed a short survey. Please take some time to complete the interest survey so that we might increase our offerings for the second semester. https://goo.gl/forms/ZxDzZdqVFk1JA9Wn1

Morning Drop-Off Safety
Safety is the priority as we look at all of our procedures. We want everyone to have a safe arrival to school. Please find below important tips that are intended to keep you and your child safe during the morning drop-off. Thank you for helping us to have a safe year!
- The building doors open at 7:15 a.m. daily and staff will be present to welcome your child to the building.
- When dropping off your child in the car lane please pull up as far as possible. Staff will assist your child in exiting the vehicle.
- For your safety, please observe the no U-turn sign at the drop-off lane.
- Please be mindful if you park across the street and walk your child to the building that you do not inadvertently block a driveway or other vehicle.
- Please only use the designated crosswalk to cross the street. The crossing guard is here to assist to make sure that children and families safely navigate the traffic.
- Announcements start at 7:40 this year and classroom instruction officially begins at 7:45. Any student arriving after this time will need to be signed in at the office by an adult.
Maxwell has a new app that is designed to provide families with a single landing point for information for the school. The app may be obtained by searching for Maxwell Elementary on your phone’s app store. Be sure to look for the app that contains our school’s logo.
Once you download the app you will be able to set your preferences and receive updates as they become available. The home page contains links to social media, Seesaw, and other helpful information. We will continue to develop the app over the year so that it becomes a viable communication tool that you will be able to rely upon for current information!
