Maeser Classical Literature Scholarship

Available only to Maeser seniors, this scholarship awards $500 for first place and $250 for second place. Essays (750 words) answering the prompt: “What piece of classical literature moved you to think about life and people in new ways, and how did it change you?” should be sent to Mr. Simmons ( no later than 11:59pm TODAY (Friday, April 28th).

Maeser Appreciation Week: Help Needed!

Maeser Appreciation Week is NEXT WEEK (May 1st-5th) and we need HELP! Volunteer to help with breakfast and lunches for our team during that week. By the suggestion of parents last year, it was easier to donate gift cards to local restaurants and use those to have lunches brought in (please drop off gift cards in front office by April 28th). We are going to try that again. THANK YOU for helping show our team how much they’re appreciated this year! For every $5 = 1 Volunteer hour. You have been AMAESERING in supporting our Maeser team this year and we really love our Maeser Community!

For more information and to sign up, please visit our SignUpGenius: Teacher Appreciation Opportunities.

NG Make-up

All NG make-up should be completed by Review Day, especially for seniors who will be participating in graduation activities. There will be service opportunities the week of June 1st as teachers clean up their classrooms for summer. After this, NGs become NCs (essentially Fs) and coursework will need to be remediated.

Yearbook Online Sales Closing NEXT WEEK

Your opportunity to purchase a yearbook online ends next week. After that, you’ll be added to a waiting list where you might be able to purchase one. Don’t miss your opportunity! Order your yearbook today at

  • Amount: 4-5 bags/month

Report Your Volunteer Hours

DON’T FORGET! Report your volunteer hours once you’ve dropped off your donation: Report Parent Service Hours. Each $5 spent for donations counts as one hour of volunteer service!
