Winterfest Used Uniform Sale

Date: Saturday, January 19, 2019
Time: 11am-1pm
Place: Maeser Library
Invited: All Maeser families are invited!

Purpose: To help our students and families, we are pleased to hold a used school uniform sale that will include gently worn clothing. This sale is an opportunity to allow parents to resell their students uniforms, and for parents to purchase needed uniforms in good condition at a low cost.

To VOLUNTEER: Volunteer help is needed! Sign up on SignUpGenius here: Volunteer Help for Winterfest Used Uniform Sale.

To PURCHASE: The Used Uniform Sale is CASH ONLY — bring lots of small bills (ex. $1 and $5).

To SELL used uniform items: Drop off labeled items to the Library at 9 am – 10:45 am on Sat Jan 20 and sign the waiver.

PICK UP money and unsold clothing: 1:15-1:45pm in the Library

How to SELL & LABEL your used uniforms: All items must be laundered and have no holes, tears or stains. Label each item by safety pinning an envelope to each item. Each envelope needs your first and last name, gender and size of clothing item (ex. Women’s Small), and sale price written on each envelope. When your item is sold the money will go inside the envelope for you to pick up at the end of the sale (1:15-1:45pm).

WAIVER: To be able to sell your used uniform clothing, you must sign a waiver at the time you drop off your labeled clothing agreeing to the terms of the sale, indicating release of liability of Maeser and volunteers running the sale, acknowledgement to pick up donated items/money within a half hour of the sale ending or they will be considered donations to the school, the name(s) of those who will be allowed to pick up items/money at the end of the sale (a driver’s license will be required).

Important note: Due to liability and school regulations, envelopes with cash in them from your sold uniforms and any unsold uniform clothing items must be picked up at the end of the uniform sale (1:15pm) with a PHOTO ID.

Pick up or Donate: If you want your unsold uniforms back, you must come to the end of the sale to reclaim them. Envelopes with cash and uniform items that are not picked up at the end of the sale will be considered a donation to the school. Maeser will use the clothing and money to benefit the students at Maeser.

Class Schedules for Semester 2

Please take a moment before Tuesday to log into your student’s PowerSchool account and print their Semester 2 schedule – to access that schedule in PowerSchool, click on Account Preferences, then My Schedule, and then choose the Matrix View tab.

We will have limited staff available during Winterfest to help print copies of students’ Semester 2 schedules.

Tardies will not be excused for students who are late to 1st period on Tuesday because they need to have their schedule printed in the front office. Please plan ahead!

After-School Ski/Snowboard Program at Brighton Ski Resort

In February and March 2019, Brighton Ski Resort will be offering group ski/snowboard lessons for Maeser families (limited space available). This is an after-school activity provided by Brighton Ski Resort and is not sponsored or run by the school. In order to participate in this activity, the participant must be 8 years old or older.

The ski/snowboard program will run for 5 consecutive weeks in 2019 — February 22, March 1, 8, 15, and 22 — from 4:15 to 6:15pm. After each lesson, the students will be able to ski and snowboard on their own until 9:00pm.

The cost of the ski program is $125 ($25 per student per day) for students ages 8 and up. This price includes the lesson and the night pass to ski/snowboard. Ski and snowboard rentals, which include boots, poles, skis, or snowboards, are available for $75 ($15 per day). There is no pro-rating for lessons or rentals that are unused. You may also choose to bring your own gear. Helmets are highly recommended but are not part of the rental package.

This program is sponsored and run by Brighton Ski Resort. Transportation to/from the resort is the responsibility of the student/family. Neither Maeser nor Brighton will be providing transportation. However, there is a UTA bus that runs to the resort if you do not wish to drive.

Once lessons begin, there will be no refunds or make ups, unless the program is cancelled due to a road closure, in which case a make-up day will be scheduled for the entire group.

Class sizes should not exceed 10 students and all classes will have a minimum of 5 students. If a student skis/rides at an extremely high level, they may be combined with the group that is closest to their ability.

If you have any questions, please email Laralee Ireland at It should be a fun time on the slopes!
