Maire Newsletter: January 20, 2023

Dear Maire Families,

It was a short, but wonderful week at Maire! The students who signed up for lunchtime enrichment, had a great first experience in either yoga or fashion design! Next week, art will begin as well. Thank you to all of our volunteers who signed up to host a class!

If you have any additional wonderings or concerns, please feel free to reach out at anytime!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Celebrating the Chinese New Year

Mrs. Aldrich's 1st grade and Mrs. Mc Garvah's kindergarten classes went above and beyond to put on the perfect Chinese New Year parade today at Maire. They read all about the Chinese New Year, created costumes, lanterns, played instruments such as drums, tambourines and triangles. It was a great start to our day! Bravo! Nicely done!

One Book, One School sponsored by The Maire PTO

A huge THANK YOU to the Maire PTO for sponsoring One Book, One School this year!
