Orchestra getting ready to perform, "Welcome 5th graders" on the screen above them

Maywood welcomed 5th grade students from Briarwood, Maple Hills, Apollo, Challenger and private elementary schools to get their first glimpse of middle school Thursday, February 15. Our WEB leaders gave small group tours of the school, then the future 6th graders gathered in the Charger Cafe. 

Students were then given an introduction to our music program, with performances from our Choir, Orchestra, and Band. Orchestra teacher Jana Dalpez encouraged students to "choose the sound you like best, whether it's your own voice or the sound of a particular instrument." She then gave a 5th grade volunteer his first cello lesson!

Fifth graders also heard from current Maywood students about the various electives offered at school.

Maywood Middle School Principal Erin Armstrong

Meet Principal Erin Armstrong

Hello, Charger families! Every day I'm inspired by our students. Middle school can be a challenging time for students as they are becoming more independent, making choices about interests they want to pursue and thinking about their place in the world. I am in awe of their courage to show up each day, their empathy for others and the persistence they show when they encounter challenges. A few fun facts about me: My family loves cheering on the Seattle Sounders and OL Reign, and spending time outside at playgrounds, hiking, biking, swimming and playing pickleball. My biggest hope for this school year is that everyone at our school (students, families, and staff) feels connected to our community and a strong sense that they belong at Maywood Middle School.  I look forward to meeting you and hearing more about your hopes for this upcoming school year, too!
