Dunk Tank Voting:
Excitement is once again filling the halls of Maxwell as students prepare to vote on which teachers or administrators get to spend some time in the dunk tank at Spring Fling!
Silent Auction Baskets:
In addition to the donations we are receiving from businesses, students have come up with various ideas for classroom baskets for the Silent Auction. Each student received a flyer with their classrooms basket theme today (listed below as well). The flyer lists a couple of ideas but you are definitely not limited to those. Anything relating to the basket theme would be greatly appreciated.

Once on this page, click the red apply button in the upper right hand corner and then complete the form.
By doing this, it will prevent us from being the bad guy by telling you that you can’t go because the form was not filled out in a timely fashion. Thanks, in advance, for helping us out with this.
If you plan to take your child home after a field trip, please make these arrangements in advance. It is too hectic on that day to best account for child safety. Please remember if a child leaves the building prior to the end of the day, this will impact their “perfect attendance” status should they have it.
MIS appreciates your assistance in helping keep our students safe and healthy!!
Please contact Mrs Hoskins with any questions or concerns.
You shop online for what you are planning to purchase anyway and support our school. Simply go to www.schoolstore.com, select our school (School code: 8981) and let the shopping begin!! Feel free to share with family members and friends.
Vaccination Opportunity: For the 2018-2019 school year, students in the sixth grade are required to have two Hepatitis A, a meningococcal, and a Tdap vaccine in order to be compliant with state requirements. Hepatitis A vaccines must be given six months apart. The Hancock County Health Department generally offers open clinics prior to the start of school, but you can also call and schedule an appointment or use your regular healthcare provider to receive vaccines. Due to the six month period that must pass between Hepatitis A vaccines, you should start NOW to ensure your student will not be excluded from attendance next school year.
When dropping off your student/s in the parent pick up line, we would ask that you have your child exit the car directly onto the curb. Students who exit the vehicle into the drive and walk around their car may risk injury from other vehicles moving in the drive. We also ask that you be patient and not pull around unloading cars.
Please also remember that the bus lot is closed to vehicle traffic from 7:30-7:50 in the morning. We ask that you use the parent drop off line, instead of the bus parking lot. Dropping off a student off by the curb in the bus area creates an unsafe situation for both your student and our bus riders. If you have a special circumstance, please contact the main office in advance to arrange for appropriate parking or feel free to use the guest parking spots on the southwest side or the far south spots near 500 N.
