Getting Organized

Thank you to all of the 'friends' who joined us for breakfast on Saturday, October 29 at the Egg and I.  We gathered some unique and wonderful items for the sale and show in December.  
Wow.  There's a lot of talent out in the world.  Here's a sneak peak:

This is the cutest child's cooking set.  Oh, my.

There  are many other items, and as soon as I get photos, 
you can rest assured they will be posted here.
In the meantime, I spent part of my Sunday doing a little production work:
Reusable sandwich bags... yes, they are big enough for a couple of slices of bread.
They are colorful, fun and reusable.  They come in sandwich and snack sizes.
They are lined with rip-stop nylon you can wipe clean, or machine wash and dry.

S.P.A.R.C. at Maxfield

Special Projects Are Really Cool made its debut at Maxfield on Friday, September 30th.  Through your support, students were able to participate in special high interest activities for part of their school day.  The day was a huge success with both students and staff.  From an outdoor carnival to bass guitar lessons and making spring rolls to rolling beads, students had the opportunity to experience unique, fun and engaging activities.

Making ornaments...

Spring rolls...enough to share

Ooey gooey gleek...

Science... build it... chain reaction

Bass guitar lessons

Cookie decorating

Group Karaoke




and making beads to name a few...
There were many other activities included on this SPARC day.  We will be hosting more SPARC opportunities at Maxfield throughout the school year.  Thank you for making all of this, and so much more, possible at Maxfield School.
