SUPERINTENDENT’S MONTHLY MESSAGE

April 2017

Dear Team BCPS,

We’re in the final marking period of the school year, and I hope students are still putting forth their best efforts. Every school day counts.

Throughout April, fall in love again with reading during the second annual countywide reading event: BC Reads. This year’s BC Reads theme, “Eat Up!" uses food and the culinary arts as a gateway to literacy and conversation.

On April 4, student performances will be the highlight of the annual State of the Schools luncheon. I’d like to thank our business community for their ongoing support of our schools and students with leadership from The Education Foundation of BCPS.

Enjoy a well-deserved spring break. When schools reopen on April 18, we’ll announce the winners of the first Team BCPS Haiku Contest. We received more than 1,000 entries! I’m so proud of our students and staff for embracing this opportunity for creativity.

We’ll be holding our breath on April 26 as the BCPS Teacher of the Year and Elementary and Secondary Principals of the Year are announced during a ceremony at George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology. I’m so proud of all of our nominees, and I wish our finalists the best.

Take care!
