From the Principal’s Desk….

Great things are happening at Dumbarton! Last week we were informed that we were chosen to be a BCPS “Lighthouse” middle school for 2015-2016 school year. Specifically, we will be pioneering new BCPS initiatives such as a curriculum conversion, personalized and blended learning and increased use of technology in the classroom. Schools were identified through a process that measured staff and principal commitment and ultimately included the review of school applications that were submitted to a special committee. Last week I visited Rodger’s Forge Elementary school to thank the fifth graders for writing letters of interest to the BCPS Lighthouse school committee. Rodger’s Forge has been a Lighthouse elementary school so our incoming fifth graders know well the advantages of this program. I also visited our two other feeder elementary schools where all students attend Dumbarton: Stoneleigh and West Towson. Our incoming sixth grade students were very excited to hear that they will benefit from the use of 1:1 digital devices while our continuing students will have more access to technology in our building as well. As we receive more information on this program we will share it with our entire school community.
