It’s less than a month away! Time to get ready for Team BCPS Day 2018

TEAM BCPS Day 2018
TOWSON, MD — The concept was simple: one day each year, Baltimore County Public Schools would ask everyone to share photos on social media (using #BCPSblue) in which they wear blue to show their pride in the school system. That is how Team BCPS Day began, but, oh my, what it’s grown into!

We can’t wait to see what will happen on Team BCPS Day 2018 – Thursday, Jan. 11. We can’t wait to see what our Team BCPS stakeholders will make happen!

In the past, businesses have taken photos that show their entire workforce on the floor in the shape of the letters BCPS. Photos have been taken using drones and green screens. Schools have created music videos to celebrate the day and have gathered their entire student body and faculty together for photo shoots. BCPS has received photos of future (as yet unborn) students and from alumni now on the other side of the nation and world. The county has lit the dome of its courthouse in blue. Blue cakes have been baked. Hair has been dyed blue. Some photos have come along with messages about generations of a family are connected to BCPS.

“Team BCPS Day is one of my favorite days of the year,” said Interim Superintendent Verletta White. “It is an outstanding opportunity to celebrate our unity and to recognize the reach of our school system and our relationships with and impact on individuals, businesses, and neighborhoods. January 11, 2018, will be my first Team BCPS Day as interim superintendent so I am hoping that it will be the biggest and best one ever. You – our students, staff, alumni, and community partners – can make that happen."

Prior to Team BCPS Day, alumni and business partners are invited to submit written or video messages about how and why they are part of BCPS. These messages can be sent to any time on or before Jan. 11, or shared via social media.

Photos from last year’s Team BCPS Day can be viewed on the school system’s Flickr page.
