Maire newsletter: September 16, 2022
Dear Maire Families
We had an amazing second week of school filled with the joy of learning, building relationships and fun! It has been so rewarding to be apart of all the learning opportunities taking place each day at Maire! As a team, we are focusing on helping our students to "find their voices" and become successful leaders! (Habit 8: Find Your Voice)
I wanted to say thank you to all of the families that were able to join us at Back to School Night! It was such a pleasure to get the opportunity to meet all of you! If by chance you were unable to attend, I have posted my presentation below.
If you have any additional wonderings or concerns, please feel free to reach out at anytime!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Mrs. Nicole Filiccia
Principal of Maire
We Learn. We Lead. We Lift.
New Attendance Procedures!
When calling the attendance line, you will be asked to enter an extension. The extension is the last four digits of the attendance phone number 4301.
The attendance line can be used for absences, early pick-ups and planned vacations.
Below are the links to both the Back to School Night Principal presentation and The Maire Staff introductions.
Student-Parent Handbook 2022-2023
End of the day update: Our Y5 and Kindergarten friends will be out at recess from 3:10-3:30. We are encouraging parents to please refrain from gathering on the blacktop and playscape area until the teachers are able to blow the whistle for the Kindergarten and young 5s friends to return to their line up spots. This will help to ensure that all of our Maire Bears are safely dismissed.

10/15 Maire Families Progressive Dinner
Chartwells offers hot lunch. Once the menu is posted it will be available here: https://gpschools.nutrislice.com/ Money can be added to your child's account on the Parent Portal. Your child just needs to tell their teacher in the morning what hot lunch option they would like. The lunch person will find their name (or once they are ready, use the lunch card that food sevices will create for each child) to deduct money right from your account.
Students with a peanut allergy will eat at the peanut free table in the gym.
Please join our Maire Bears for lunch / recess as a volunteer!
Just a few reminders:
1. Please make sure to have an up to date Volunteer Release Inquiry on file in the office.
2. Please contact the office as soon as possible if you are unable to join us on your scheduled day.
Please feel free to call the Maire office for more information!
As always, we appreciate your dedication to our students!

The PTO meeting will be held in the Maire library at 7:00 pm. Any family who has joined the PTO by paying their dues can attend a general membership meeting. These meetings are a great way to share ideas or suggestions for improving the Maire community. It is also a great way to become more informed about the inner workings of Maire.
