• K-12 English Language Arts Information

    At our last regularly scheduled board meeting, the K-12 English Language Arts (ELA) Curriculum Task force along with the MCPS Teaching & Learning Department made a recommendation to the board of Trustees to adopt two new curriculum packages that will guide the English Language Arts instruction in our district K-12.

    This was an information-only agenda item. Per normal district procedures, the curriculum recommendations will stay open until the June 12th meeting at which point trustees vote to take action. Anyone interested in viewing any of the recommended materials may visit the 6th Street Administration Building where they are on display.

    We have also published this Q&A to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the recommendations.

  • M.A.D. Mondays (Make A Difference Monday):   

    We are starting a program, “Make A Difference Monday”, to supplement our food pantry at Hellgate High School.  On Mondays, we are asking families who have the ability, to pick up just one extra non-perishable item during their weekly grocery shopping trips to donate to our supplemental pantry on M.A.D. Mondays.  Your kids can drop off the items at the front office on their way in to school and help to restock the shelves which provide to so many who are struggling. 

    Many kids are going without these days and we are hoping you can make a difference!  One extra box of granola bars, one can of tuna fish, a can of soup, a stick of deodorant – just one item per week will make a difference in the life of a child who is in need.

    Please help us by supporting M.A.D. Mondays and together, we can truly make a difference.  Thank you so much for your support!

    If you have any questions, please contact Tracy Ledyard at extension 6062
