The art room is looking to collect egg cartons for an upcoming project with our 3rd graders, for their musical performance in November. We will be needing a lot of egg cartons so we are starting the collection process early in order to have enough time to complete our projects. If anyone has any empty egg cartons laying around we would love to use them. I will have a large cardboard box outside of the art room for donations.

Introducing....Jamie Wiener - School-based Therapist
Maple Dale is excited to announce Jamie Wiener, school-based therapist, who will be providing students and families access to private mental health services full-time in the 2019-2020 school year.
Jamie has over 15 years of experience in early childhood therapy. She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and then her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology- Child Assessment and Intervention Specialization from Northwestern University in 2006. Wiener is licensed as a Clinical Professional Counselor and is a National Certified Counselor. Jamie spent the 2018-2019 school year serving students at Symmes, Montgomery, and Maple Dale Elementary.
The partnership with Cincinnati Children’s and their services does not require any financial support from the district. Students and families needing services can cover therapy visits through private insurance, Medicaid, or private pay options. Assistance may be available for families experiencing financial difficulty.
Parents, teachers and school counselors can make student referrals for service. Students can also self refer for services. Ultimately, the decision to move forward with therapeutic services is up to the family.
If you would like additional information about Jamie’s services, or the district mental health initiatives, contact Lisa Zelvy via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at (513) 686-1700.

A personalized bookplate will be placed in the book and a picture of your student with their book selection will be posted and sent home.
