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.

Here's the latest Nettie & Friend News:
Monday, February 15, 2016
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.
