A Look Ahead

  • March 1 – PTA Information Session!  Enjoy free pizza & socializing from 6:30-7.  The meeting will run from 7-8. Our guest speaker will be Dana Sheets, and we will be discussing out to build our community and opportunities to help our school. Free child care will be provided.
  • March 11 – Merienda.  On the second Friday of the month, Dr. Ennis invites parents into the school to meet and then head into the classrooms to read to their child’s class (or another class that could use a reader).  Dr. Ennis asks parents to arrive at 9:15 for a meet/greet and everyone will head to the classrooms at 9:48 for a dance party.  Interested in joining the fun? Contact Mrs. Jen Lucina at Jennifer_M_Lucina@mcpsmd.org
