are going to use December to increase reading and math facts fluency for all
students and lessen the stress for all families. Beginning December 1,
students will only be assigned their 20 minutes of nightly
reading and the reading log and math facts practice for homework. This
will be the only homework assigned during December (with the exception of
tests, quiz studying or special projects previously assigned). The logs
will be turned into classroom teachers. Let’s get excited about reading
and math facts and make sure that you complete your only homework assignments

If your child used the MakerSpace in the library last year, you are welcome to sign up him/her up for some Monday Morning Maker Time starting Monday, Oct. 24. The MakerSpace will open at 8:00 for Makers to tinker with the Take Apart Technology Station, Legos, Make a Craft, or invent something new from recycled materials. Click here to sign your child up for a Monday Maker Morning spot. We have 25 student slots available each Monday. This year we would like to invite interested parents to sign up for Monday Morning Maker presentations and/or workshops. If you have a job or career that involves making something that you think students would be interested in learning about contact our media specialist, Lisa Norris @ Lisa_B_Norris@mcpsmd.org to schedule a maker session.
