The wonderful days of “back to school” are here! The enthusiasm and excitement radiated throughout campus this week with a fury. It was a joyful first week of school for the teachers and students! The beginning of a new school year can bring some bittersweet moments. There is always some mixed emotion as you see your youngest start their “official” first day of K-4, move up to backpacks in 3rd grade, or, finally nod you away without a “public” kiss goodbye as your “super senior” flaunts independence. As you release
your most precious possessions to our care each day, please know we covet this awesome responsibility and realize that you are entrusting them to our care.
SAFETY FIRST –– On that note, we realize that there is no greater task for parents than protecting the innocence, welfare, and safety of their most prized possession — their child. This tremendous responsibility is shared by the teachers and staff at Park Maitland School. We take pride in the fact that we provide our students with a superior academic foundation and well-rounded program. However, the safety and well being of each of our students is by far our most coveted priority.
We are constantly analyzing, reevaluating, and “tweaking” our safety and security protocol. This school year is no exception. As you know, updates on our newest safety and security measures are sent home periodically, and we are excited to let you know about our recent enhance-ments. The addition of a highly experienced and highly trained full time Security Manager this year was one of our
many improvements. Our “safety and security ambassador,” Mr. Jesse Johnson is a tremendous asset to our school, and we are certain
that you will all agree. Please read his message in this week’s newsletter. As always, we appreciate you working with us as we team up to educate your child and provide him/her with a joyous and safe place to reach those milestones each day.
Mrs. Cindy Moon
Head of School
