Come by MAUE on Thursday May 11th from 6-7PM, as the halls are transformed to a museum! The hallways will be filled with all of the artwork of MAUE's talented artists. During art this year, students traveled through time and learned about the different art periods, famous artists and famous artworks throughout history. They created several artworks inspired by these different types of art beginning with prehistoric art all the way to art today. Artwork will include various drawings, paintings, mixed media art, cut and paste art, three-dimensional art, ceramics, and printmaking. There will also be professional artists demonstrating various art skills and live music to enjoy! More information is coming soon, and a newsletter will be sent home with your child with all of the information that you will need. Hope to see you there!

Playground Updates

We are thrilled to report that phase two of our playground upgrades to the 5th grade side are underway!

Through your generous support of our Fall and Spring Fundraisers, the PTO was able to order the new, innovative GT Wave for the 5th grade side of the playground. The GT Wave is an inclusive net climbing structure that includes an Everybody Plays transfer platform, a SureGrip accessible path, a six foot zip slide, climbing ropes, and activity areas inside the net structure. It is the first of its kind in Mississippi!!

In addition to this showpiece, you will see the removal of the gravel from the 5th grade side, the installation safety surfacing, a new border with ADA accessible ramp, and replacement of old swings. We are hopeful to see work on this area begin before we end our school year. Over the last three years we have seen the installation of a new digital sign, a new shaded outdoor eating space, a new climbing feature on the third grade AND fifth grade sides, a new accessible Merry-Go-All, new safety surfacing and border, and we aren’t done yet!! Our next phase involves something we can all SHOOT for and I know we will make our GOAL and give ourselves TWO POINTS when we do! Stay tuned for more details. Thank you again for your support of MAUE! These things could not be done with you.
