Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. We hope you have taken the time to have some fun, as well as get some rest over the summer. We look forward to hearing about your summer adventures!
This year’s school theme will be … Be the Change You Want to See as we move forward to Building an Awesome School Year for students and staff. During this year, you can expect an emphasis on continuing addressing the needs of our students through a holistic approach. We will continue implementing Maryland College and Career Readiness (MCCR) standards, understanding and utilizing the data cycle, collaborative planning, Close Reading and Cycles of Professional Learning. As you can see, there is already a lot on our plates, but we are the right people to complete the work.
As we look back over the 2016-2017 school year, we had many successes and challenges, but everyone continued to work through all situations and we made it through the year. This year, we will not “just make it” but we will be the change we want to see to ensure that we live up to our motto “strive not to equal but to excel!” It is only through raising expectations and striving for excellence that our children can reach their full potential. As a team, we have what it takes to build up our student’s knowledge base and successfully prepare them for college and careers.
