  • Embassy of Spain in D.C. names Maxwell Its School of the Year

    School of the Year  

    Maxwell Spanish Immersion Magnet Elementary has been named the 2018-19 School of the Year by the Embassy of Spain’s Education Office in Washington, D.C. This award goes to schools in the United States that demonstrate excellence in content and language integrated learning programs in English and Spanish. Maxwell, which was Kentucky’s first whole-school immersion program, has a nearly 30-year record of providing quality education that is both innovative and effective in fostering Spanish language proficiency, academic achievement, and global competence. Former students also attest to how Maxwell influenced their choice of career and how they use intercultural competency as a base for their work and life.

  • Afternoon Pick-Up

    In the afternoon we have noticed an increase in the number of vehicles that pull into the bus lane before all buses have safely left the school grounds. For the safety of the children, please be sure that all buses have departed before pulling into the bus lane. Please also remember that the lane is designed for single-parking. We have noted individuals who have been double parking. This has resulted in trapping other vehicles. Thank you in advance for your courtesy and for regarding the safety of students and other families.

    • 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.

  • Maxwell App

    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!
