SUPERINTENDENT’S MONTHLY MESSAGE

May 2017

Dear Team BCPS,

We have to take care of ourselves so that we can take care of our students and staff. The BCPS Employee Wellness Committee will host our first 5K Wellness Day, a free event for employees and their families on May 6. Come on out and help us celebrate healthy bodies and minds at Oregon Ridge Park.

Teachers are the heart of every schoolhouse. Take some time during National Teacher Appreciation Week, May 8-12, to thank our teachers for their tireless commitment to excellence. National Teacher Day is May 9.

We also honor those dedicated to keeping students healthy and maintaining safe, inviting learning environments on these days:

  • May 10, National School Nurse Day
  • May 26, BCPS Salute to Custodians, Groundskeepers, Maintenance Personnel, and Security Guards Day

Students selected to participate in the BCPS Independent Research Seminar elective course will present their yearlong research at our fifth annual symposium on May 18 at Pikesville High School.

Just like that, graduation season is almost here. The last school day for Grade 12 students is May 26. High school commencement exercises begin on May 30 and end June 8. Summer graduation will be held on August 19. Please see the 2017 High School Graduation Schedule.

Take care!
