Student Fees are Due in Full

STUDENT FEES ARE DUE IN FULL. Your student(s) will not be allowed to pick up their yearbook on the last day of school if they have outstanding fees. Any fees left unpaid at the end of the 2017-18 school year will be applied to your family account for the 2018-19 school year and will need to be paid before your student(s) can sign up for 2018-19 sports/activities. Please be aware that for checkout, your student(s) will need to return their lock (for their locker), textbooks, and library books or they will be assessed a replacement fee. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Finance Office ASAP at finance@maeserprep.org.

Does your student still have NGs to make up? We will be holding Attendance School on Monday and Tuesday from 1:00-3:00pm, after Finals. Attendance school costs $2 per 20-minute session; each session makes up one tardy, one excused absence, or 1/2 unexcused absence. The deadline to make up NGs is 3:00pm on Wednesday, May 24th.

2018-19 Student Academic Eligibility for Sports

ATTENTION ALL 8th,9th,10th, and 11th GRADERS! If you are planning on participating in a high school sport during the fall, you must meet academic standards in order to be eligible. This means that you must have a 2.0 with NO Fs or NGs for the 4th term. That’s correct, this term’s grades are what will determine your eligibility for fall sports. If you have any Fs or NGs for this term (Quarter 4) you will be INELIGIBLE to play sports in the fall.

Galapagos Winterim 2019 Update

(includes notes on Travel Winterims in general)

Due to policy changes at the state and school level, travel Winterims are being more carefully vetted at Maeser. At present, only one international travel Winterim has been authorized for 2019: the Galapagos Winterim. Students (and interested parents/guardians) who attend this Winterim will have the opportunity to explore the history and culture of Quito, Ecuador, as well as the natural history and scenic beauty of the world-famous Galapagos Islands. The academic focus for students will be on the biological diversity and conservation of the living organisms of the islands. All interested parties can view further information, including the itinerary, payment plans, and cost, by visiting the following website: http://www.explorica.com/slade-7735. Mrs. Slade and Mr. Kreitzer are co-leaders for this Winterim. They can be reached at stefanie.slade@maeserprep.org and josh.kreitzer@maeserprep.org.
