Here's the latest Nettie & Friend News:

Just before winter break, some third grade students donned chef hats and gloves and politely served adults who work with them throughout the day. As you can imagine, this activity was a big hit for both students and staff. The students still talk about the day with a smile as "remember that day we made taco salad for our teachers?" It was one of those school days filled with smiles, laughter, hugs and empowerment for our students.
Follow the link below those smiling faces for more information about how you make a difference at Maxfield.
Do you ever wonder how your donation of crafted goods makes a difference to our students? Do you wonder what opportunities your donation brings to the Maxfield community of learners?
Well, here's how. (And these are just a couple of examples. There are many, many more that happen all year long.)
- You help provide basic items for all of our students, including uniforms, underwear, and warm winter wear such as boots, jackets, hats and mittens.
- You help our amazing school nurse provide a little loving care with something as simple as a small paper cup of water, a couple of soda crackers, and something as crucial as nebulizer set-ups for students with asthma so they can participate fully in their school day.
- You help teachers purchase basic supplies and instructional materials for their classrooms.
- Your donations enrich the student's lives in many ways through field trips, creative activities and supporting our family science night.

For back to school!
You've gotta love shopping for new school supplies (well, at least I do!)
Teachers and "Friends" scour the local ads to get the best prices on school supplies. From something as small as a pencil sharpener to a field trip bus, your contributions make a difference in the lives of our students.
As we move into the "new" year, we are excited to meet our students and families. Because of Nettie & Friends we are able to bring experiences to students like never before.
The staff and students have been very busy working on improving our Maxfield courtyard - work that began last summer and continued throughout the school year and into this summer. It is truly a work in progress that includes a new birdbath to entice even more birds to our "viewing station." This small investment brings big smiles, great questions and wonderful observations from our students. Teachers have to plan extra time to transition through the main hallway to allow students time to look for their favorite 'red' bird. We stop to wonder how that squirrel manages to squeeze itself inside the bird feeder. Thank you for your support in sparking a love of the natural world in a new generation.
Look for more news about what YOU help to bring to Maxfield.
While getting ready for this new school year, I know friends are also gearing up for this year's Sale of the Season in December. Watch for more updates about the sale and other ways to support Maxfield School through Nettie & Friends.

Check out the smiles on the faces of these Kindergarten students. They are busy celebrating 100 days of school. Counting. Making patterns. Smiling. Making a necklace. You helped this happen.
How to make a 100 days of school necklace:
How to make a 100 days of school necklace:
|First, you count out ten groups of ten.|
Then, you check with your friends and start stringing your ten groups of ten in a colorful pattern.
|Then, you celebrate (and say "Thank you.)|
