Welcome Back Mary E. Rodman School Community!


The staff and I look forward to serving and supporting you throughout the coming year. It is our sincere desire to work collaboratively with you in order to foster a safe, orderly, and disciplined environment that is conducive to learning.

There's a lot of excitement and challenging work ahead of us... including many new staff members to meet, school-wide Behavioral Standards and Expectations to learn, and the Maryland College and Career Readiness standards to master.
