Dear Maya Lin Families,


Happy Summer! Our school modernization project is underway! If you go by Maya Lin School you will see the Measure I modernization work in progress. It will be exciting to start the school year with new windows and a new office located at the front of the school.


The first day of school will be Monday, August 21, 2017. Please join us on Friday, August 18, from 5:00 – 6:30pm in the school multi-purpose room for our PTA-sponsored Ice Cream Social. This will be the time for you to pick-up your child’s classroom assignment for the school year.  The playground will be open for children to play.


Our PTA will also be hosting a Meet and Greet for Maya Lin Families at Crab Cove on Sunday, August 6, from 1:00 – 4:00pm.  We look forward to welcoming all our new families and especially the second and third grade families joining our community from Lum School!


The Maya Lin School Office will reopen on Tuesday, August 8, 2017.  We hope you all have a safe, relaxing summer.

Our program features:

  • Arts Integration- Inquiry Learning
  • Looping (Classes stay together with their teacher in the following years K/1, 2/3, 4/5)
  • Class size 25 to 1 K-5th Grade
  • Spanish Instruction
  • After School Art and Culture Enrichment Programs

Our Mission is to embrace 21st century learning and the involvement of our community in building a dynamic school environment. We acknowledge learning is a lifelong process and support ongoing professional development and collaboration for all members of the school community.

Book Recommendation
This lyrical novel-in-verse follows the experiences and escape from slavery of nine-year-old Grace and her family.  Portraying a little-known part of history, Grace's family ventures deep into the Great Dismal Swamp between Virginia and North Carolina to live their free lives as maroons.  Great for students who are interested in history and poetry! (Grade 4+)
