  • Important
    Thank you to everyone for such a great start to school this year!  I want to remind everyone that it is very important that ALL of our students attend school daily and that they arrive on time.  Each time a student is absent from school he/she misses out on valuable instruction and the absence is also held against the school.  With new attendance regulations in place, Maxwell and all other schools will be penalized if our students do not attend daily.  Parents, it is critical that you have your child/children in school everyday.  Please do not plan family vacations while school is in session.  We have seen a considerable increase in absences on Mondays and Fridays. Maxwell Elementary School students and school personnel and Tuscaloosa County School District personnel as well as State and Federal personnel will be tracking daily attendance.  Please do your part to help Maxwell meet it's required goal of 96% school wide daily attendance. We appreciate your support as we move towards meeting the NEW attendance regulations.

Book Study List

  • The 7 Habits of Happy Kids

    by Sean Covey
    As the faculty and staff of Maxwell Elementary, we have a common philosophy:  our love and concern for kids. Sean Covey, the author of The 7 Habits of Happy Kids emphasis' that this book can help kids in three ways:  First, it will teach them about the power of living according to priniciples such as responsibilty, planning ahead, respect for others, teamwork, and balance.  Second, it will equip them with a common language they can use with parents and teachers. Third, kids will identify themselves in one of the characters and as a result it will helps kids apply the 7 Habits to their own lives.

    The Leader in Me

    by Stephen Covey
    Maxwell faculty and staff participated in a book study called The Leader in Me

    The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer — it improves performance of all other programs. Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. Better yet, The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy.
