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.

Annual Safety Night

Our annual Safety Night will be held on Wednesday, March 7th at 6:30pm. Jared Norris and Officer Campbell will be available to talk about Maeser’s emergency plans. SafeUT will also have a representative there to talk about threats to our students, internet safety, and suicide prevention. We welcome ALL Maeser parents to come and be a part of the conversation as we try to keep our students safe!
