Back to School for a New Year...

Students and teachers are back in the classroom.  Books, pencils, markers and supplies are ready, but there is so much more involved than the right color notebook ... like these science supplies for PreK students to study the life cycle of plants and butterflies.  Nettie & Friends provided dirt (okay, soil), tools, seeds, and plants so PreK students could explore and learn about where their food comes from and how it grows.  

This is what Nettie & Friends does.  We provide the tools for teachers that fall outside of the regular school budget to help their students understand and experience their world. 

What do these boring tubs have to do with anything? 

Maxfield has one of the highest rates of homeless students in the district.  Through your support, we maintain a uniform closet so every student is ready for the school day.  We also provide clean underwear and socks, because, sometimes, the unexpected happens and a student needs a change of clothes at school.

Watch for news of our December Sale of the Season 
at the Egg & I in St. Paul. 

Thank you for everything you do to support 
students and teachers at Maxfield School.

Back to School
     You can feel it.  August is here.  September and back to school are just around the corner.  School supplies are being collected.  New shoes and "school clothes" are being tried on. Teachers are planning lessons. Soon, another year of learning adventures will greet students at Maxfield School.
     One thing is different this year:  After 33 years of "new year" excitement as a teacher, Nettie Monroe has retired.  Even though she’s not heading back to a classroom this year she’s is still dedicated to working with you to help the students and teachers at Maxfield.
     Nettie & Friends will continue to help meet the needs of the Maxfield School community by supporting students and teachers. 
  • We’re already planning for the annual sale at the Egg & I in December. 
  • We’re looking for volunteers to help with that sale.  You can make things for the sale, volunteer to help on opening night, to help replenish stock during the month of the sale, you can help us publish the sale to new people who are interested in helping students learn.  You can contact us through   for more information. 
  • We’re looking for people who are interested in helping guide the organization and its activities by working as a board member. 
  • We’re always interested in making it easy for you to donate, so you can click on the "PayPal Donate" button in the side bar and help us make sure every student has access to school supplies, warm winter clothing and enrichment activities to make this a great year at Maxfield.
