  • Malta Avenue Students Participates In St. Baldrick's Fundraiser            

               On Saturday March 14th, Malta Avenue students are invited to participate in a fundraiser to benefit the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a “volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives”. Participants raise money and shave their heads in honor of those who lose their hair due to cancer.

                We have set a goal to raise $3,000 and we are asking for your support! Last year, the students and staff at Malta Avenue Elementary raised over $6,000! There are several ways that you can show support for this organization and our school’s involvement. 

    • You can become a sponsor and make a donation for our students and teachers who are shaving their heads for St. Baldrick’s! Please go to our team site to make a donation: You can make a donation to specific shavee or to the whole team. Donations WILL NOT be accepted at school. Please do not send donations in with your child.
    • You can join our team, raise money, and be a shavee yourself! Go to and click “Join team!” Raise money and show up on March 14th for your shaving! Shaving times will be sent home at a later date.
    • Look for more ways to show support later in February!

    For more information, please email Mrs. DeGregorio (

  • Welcome Mrs. Rudolph!

                Welcome to Mrs. Maureen Rudolph! Mrs. Rudolph is our new Library Media Specialist at Malta Avenue Elementary School. Mrs. Rudolph has three children ages 12, 9, and 2 years old. Her favorite hobbies are reading and family hikes. She loves climbing Sleeping Beauty Mountain (near Lake George) and she has climbed Cascade Mountain. She was told this was the easiest of the high peaks to climb but thought it was hard! Her favorite books are the Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling and Front Desk by Kelly Yang.

                Mrs. Rudolph was not always a Library Media Specialist. This is her second Master’s Degree. Before becoming a Library Media Specialist, Mrs. Rudolph was a technical writer for a software company. One of her favorite jobs was when she was an editor for a local newspaper on Long Island. She decided to go back to school to become a Library Media Specialist because she loves reading and loves just being in a library. Mrs. Rudolph carries a book with her wherever she goes.

                Mrs. Rudolph’s favorite part of her new career is working with the children and instilling the love of reading in them.

    Mrs. Rudolph
