This past week at Maayan was full of learning in all the classrooms. Students are really growing in all subject areas. We, as a school, had a strong finish to our first trimester. Teachers look forward to meeting with all of the parents Monday, November 20th and Tuesday, November 21st. We look forward to seeing you soon.
