Message from our DCC
Welcome back to school after what we hope was a wonderful and exciting winter break spent with family and friends. I hope that you all have enjoyed yourselves throughout the holiday.
A reminder for the cold weather as the temperature begins to drop. We are a uniform school and only Marsh Avenue Expeditionary Learning School sweatshirts are permitted to be worn during the school day. Students who wear personal sweatshirts during the school day may receive disciplinary consequences.
We will continue to show videos and have presentations throughout the year regarding bullying and cyber-bullying to help our MAELS family to make the correct choices about what students say or write to other students. We are asking all guardians to continue to have conversations with their child about the importance of this sensitive subject. We are also asking all guardians to carefully monitor their child’s social media and text messages and to report any concerns.
Feel free to email our Director of Culture & Character Mr. Bowen firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, comments or concerns.

MAELS After School
Dear MAELS Families,
MAELS is pleased to offer a self-sustaining after-school program for the current school year. The goal of our afterschool programs is to provide interesting and engaging opportunities in extra-curriculuar activities. Students are highly encouraged to participate in afterschool activities, as they are an enjoyable component of students’ afternoon time at MAELS.
MAELS After-School Program will begin on Wednesday, October 19th and take place on Wednesday’s and Thursday’s for a total of 15 sessions. (Players, Cheerleading, and Student Council will be a year long commitment. Student Council will take place on Wednesday’s only). After the first 15 sessions, students will have an opportunity to register for the same after school activity again or take part in a different activity if they choose. A description of each afterschool class, along with the cost and duration can be found on the reverse side. If your child is interested in joining any after school program, please complete the registration form attached. Only cash and money orders are accepted and can be made payble to MAELS After-School Program. On your money order, please write the name of the student, his or her class, and the course for which they are registering. You or your child will be notified if they have not been registered into the program of their choice or in the event that a change was necessary to the existing program schedule. Receipts will be backpacked home with your child on the first meeting day of the program.
Reminders regarding the After School Program:
- There is no yellow bus transportation for after school; please make sure arrangements are made to ensure your child’s transportation home.
- If students will be picked up, they must be picked up no later than 3:30 pm. If you will be late for pick up, you must designate a meeting spot off campus to meet your child ie. Staten Island Mall, Barnes & Noble).

- All fees are non-refundable, unless the class is cancelled.
- Students are not permitted to switch afterschool programs once they are registered.
