PARCC Testing is in Progress
Thank you for planning doctor’s appointments on days when testing is not in session. We sincerely appreciate your ensuring your child gets a
good night’s rest, eats breakfast and is at school on time for their testing session. Students who arrive late will be unable to test with their class and will therefore be part of our make-up groups later which will necessitate their missing classes that have resumed. Our 6th graders had 98% attendance on the first day which was super!

8th Grade Residency Verification
Further information will be mailed home in early May. It is BCPS policy to ensure that only Baltimore County residents are sending their children to BCPS schools. This process is the same as you completed when you verified residency at the end of 5th grade to go to middle school. We appreciate your timely assistance with this matter.

Schoology is Coming!
Starting August 13, Schoology will be our learning management system, where you can communicate with your child’s teacher(s) and find your child’s courses,
grades, and assignments. Schoology adds new features that parents and students have been requesting including simple design, a mobile app, and messages that can connect to your email. If you already have a myBCPS parent account, you will be able to access Schoology through BCPS One and the Schoology mobile app starting August 13. If you do not have a myBCPS parent account, you can sign up at Learn more about Schoology on BCPS One.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our many May events. We are excited to celebrate our musicians and artists later this month along with our NJHS students and our 8th graders. Thank you for your on-going support as parents like you who communicate high expectations truly boosts student achievement.
