Welcome New Families to Maywood!
Dear New Families to Maywood,
It feels like there is so much in
flux right now, but I want you to know that the staff at Maywood Middle School
are very much still dedicated to successfully transitioning students to
Maywood--whether they are starting middle school for the first time as 6th
graders or they are a new-to-us 7th or 8th grader!
Our administrative and counseling
teams have put together a New Parent Orientation video for new families to
Maywood. You can find it by clicking here. We hope this orientation video helps to
build a strong school-home connection, answer questions and ease your mind a
bit as we start our school year in 100% remote teaching and learning.
In a world of change and
uncertainty, we are still just as committed as ever to supporting students and
ensuring they have a positive and enriching middle school experience.
We look forward to getting to know
your student and supporting them this school year!
Thank you,Erin McKee
