TODAY: Student-Parent-Teacher Conferences

Spring Student-Parent-Teacher Conferences are TODAY (Friday, March 9th) from 3:00-7:00pm!

Student-led conferences are for students, parents, and teachers to collaborate on how to increase YOUR opportunities for success. Please plan to bring your student to meet with their teachers between 3:00-7:00pm.

This format was a suggestion from both parents and students to increase the effectiveness of our collaboration in these conferences. Students: you told us you wanted a voice in your education, so this is your opportunity to help us understand your needs better so we can mentor more effectively.

The driver education class starting on Monday will begin at 6:30am. Tuesday’s class will also begin at 6:30am. All other days will begin at 6:00am.

Everyone is invited! Registration is available at the front desk, or at the trailhead on the day of the race. The cost is $5/person and $20 for families of 4 or more. All proceeds benefit the Arthritis Foundation!

LAST DAY to Purchase Yearbooks at Regular Price Before Late-Order Price Increase: March 23

Friday, March 23 is the LAST DAY to purchase a yearbook at the regular $55 price! Beginning Saturday, March 24, yearbooks will increase to the $65 late-order price.

How do I purchase a yearbook for my student?

There are two ways to purchase yearbooks:

  • In person in the front office during office hours
  • Online at our RevTrak Web Store (choose “Maeser Prep Yearbook”)

Can I still purchase a video yearbook and/or year-end supplement?

Absolutely! If you’re buying your yearbook on RevTrak, you can add a video yearbook DVD ($5) and/or the year-end supplement ($2) at the same time. If you’ve already purchased your student’s yearbook and didn’t add a video yearbook or year-end supplement during your initial purchase, you can order them at the front desk during office hours.

What if I’m not sure if I’ve already purchased a yearbook?

Please email info@maeserprep.org or contact the front office to ask them to check your student’s fees before ordering a yearbook through RevTrak.

Maeser Community Read & Movie

As part of our classical education focus, we’d like to encourage our entire Maeser community to “learn continually” by joining us in reading A Wrinkle in Time during the month of March. We will be having a community book club night to discuss the principles of Truth, Honor, and Virtue found in the book on Wednesday, March 28th, at 6:30pm here at the school, followed up with a community movie night on Thursday, March 29th to watch the soon-to-be-released film (see the trailer here) at the Water Gardens movie theater. The Water Gardens has graciously agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds to the school from any Maeser families who see the movie anytime that day. Just say you’re there to see A Wrinkle in Time for Maeser!

If you need to purchase the book, this is the version we will be using. As an added bonus, if you purchase the book through Amazon’s “Smile” service, Amazon will donate a portion of the proceeds back to Maeser.
