2021-22 Fee Schedule & Spend Plan — Parent Feedback Due Today

If you have feedback regarding the 2021-22 Fee Schedule & Spend Plan please stop by or email the Finance Office at TODAY — Friday, March 5, 2021. The Board will approve the 2021-22 Fee Schedule & Spend Plan at their next board meeting.

The Fee Schedule is a summary list of every fee that Maeser Prep may charge (enrollment, class fees, extracurriculars, fines, etc). The Spend Plan shows more detail regarding how Maeser intends to utilize those funds.

Maeser Mock Trial Competition

Our High School Mock Trial Team completed 4 rounds of competition against other schools in the State and succeeded in winning 2 of the 4. Great accomplishment for our first year! Congratulations to all team members and we look forward to competing again next year. Our Middle School Mock Trial Team begins their competition trials this month and anticipates a great learning experience for their first year as well. MOCK ON!

11th Grade ACT: THIS Tuesday, March 9

On Tuesday, March 9, all of our 11th-grade students will be taking the ACT. This is a FREE opportunity for all juniors to take the ACT! Administration of this test will follow all ACT standards, so in order to create the required testing environment for our juniors, we have set aside this day for ACT testing only. **Your junior is already registered; you do not need to do anything to sign them up for this ACT administration.**

Tuesday, March 9 will be an ACT-testing-only day for our school.
There will be NO SCHOOL that day for students who are not in 11th grade.

Due to the need for an undisturbed testing environment, ACT does not allow us to have any students on campus who are not part of the ACT administration. Please make other arrangements for your students in grades 7, 8, 9, 10, and 12 on March 9 as we will not have space or supervision available for them on our campus that day. As this is an official ACT administration, we will be unable to interrupt testing to check students out. We appreciate your help in ensuring a good testing environment for our juniors!
