Welcome!

The Maywood Hills Elementary PTA exists to support our school by supplementing the school’s own resources and programs to provide the best environment possible for the growth and development of its students. Our PTA strives to be a dynamic, relevant, and responsive organization that is reflective of the community we serve. The PTA at Maywood Hills welcomes all to join and be involved at any level, and endeavors to provide volunteers with a rewarding and positive experience.

What’s Happening at Maywood Hills?!

 

This Friday, January 13th from 6:30pm – 8:00pm is La Posada. It will be located in the Maywood Hills Gym.  Las Posadas is a Christmas festival originating in Latin America.  These community celebrations take place on each of the nine nights before Christmas.  The word posada means “inn” or “shelter” in Spanish.  During Las Posadas, the host gives the guests traditional food such as tamales, and a hot drink like hot chocolate or ponche.  The guests break piñatas and the children are given candy.

Please join in Maywood’s version of this traditional cultural celebration! If you want, you can bring your favorite food dish to share. La Posada is not a PTA event, but the PTA contributes financial support, and attending it is a great way to build community and show support for Maywood’s Hispanic families. The Natural Leaders really put a lot of effort into the event and do some amazing cooking, too. Come hungry and ready to hit the piñata!

Tuesday, January 17th from 7-8:30pm in the Library is our next General PTA Meeting. We hope to have a guest speaker and will have lots of information about upcoming events to discuss and share. Childcare will be provided in the gym by the YMCA. Children 4 and older only, please.

Tuesday, January 24th, MOD Pizza in Canyon Park will be hosting a Dine Out event with 20% of your bill being donated to our PTA. Make sure you have the flyer with you and go have lunch or dinner or both and help out your school at the same time! For more information, see the flyer that came home in kid mail or you can download it here.

Friday, January 27th is our Parent Child event. This year is Father/Son (or Uncle/Nephew, Grandpa/Grandson, etc.)! Please join us as we watch the Everett Silvertips take on the Portland Winterhawks at Xfinity Arena in Everett. Doors open at 6:30, game begins at 7:35. We will have a special Maywood section so everyone can sit together! To purchase tickets, go to www.everettsilvertips.com/schoolnight.
