This year will be our second year having a float! A huge thank you to the Little family for creating an amazing float. All Student Council members will ride on the float. All other students and family members are welcome to join the fun by walking behind the float.

We are thrilled to have the SPAC Dance Residency program back at Malta Avenue this year working with our 5th grade students.!The SPAC Dance Residency program is a fully immersive arts education program that provides our students with the chance to experience the life-enhancing benefits that accompany participation in the art of dance. Two highly-trained SPAC teaching artists and a SPAC musician will visit Malta Ave on Fridays and will teach ten dance classes to every student participating in the program. The final evening performance for families is on 2/8/24. We are beyond excited to have this amazing program return to our school!
