Student Presents At National Gallery of Art
Senior, Julia Davenport gave her final presentation at the National Gallery of Art’s High School Seminar in their auditorium in Washington, DC on Saturday March 1st. She chose two works of art from the gallery’s collection, researched them then created her own work inspired by them. Julia not only engaged with original works of art, she also learned to think critically about art and art history, and experience the museum as a resource for lifelong learning.

Community Yard Sale
<flyer> Join us for the first annual “Community Yard Sale” on Saturday, April 26 from 9:00 to 1:00 p.m. In order to maximize exposure, the event will be held in the parking lot of White Oak Middle School. Space is limited. Complete the attached application to reserve your spot, then begin gathering the “treasures” that have been collecting dust in your home.
This is also a great way for clubs or teams to raise much needed funds. Pool the “treasures” from your club or team and collect the money for that field trip, jerseys, or other gear.
Proceeds from this event will benefit The Blueprint, our student newspaper. www.theblueprintnewspaper.com
Please email me directly with your questions. Thanks!

School Year May Be Extended Due to Snow Days
As of now, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) has had nine snow days this school year. The 2013-2014 school calendar, as approved by the Board of Education, has four snow days built in, so MCPS is five days over its allotted number of snow days. In order to meet the state-required 180 days of instruction, MCPS will need to add five instructional days to the end of the school year, as outlined in the Board-approved calendar. There are no plans to change spring break at this time. MCPS can apply for a waiver from the state so that we would not have to make up all of the snow days, but the state is not yet accepting these requests. Without a state waiver, the last day of school for students will be June 19, 2014. Parents are asked to plan accordingly. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
El Año Escolar Podría ser Prolongado Debido a los Días de Nieve
Por ahora, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) ha tenido nueve días de nieve este año escolar. El calendario escolar 2013-2014, aprobado por el Consejo de Educación, fue diseñado incluyendo cuatro días de nieve, por lo que MCPS tiene cinco días más que el número de días de nieve asignado. Con el fin de cumplir con los 180 días de instrucción, requeridos por el estado, MCPS tendrá que agregar cinco días de instrucción al final del año escolar, como se indica en el calendario aprobado por el Consejo. No hay planes de cambiar las vacaciones de primavera en este momento. MCPS puede solicitar una dispensa de parte del estado para que no tengamos que compensar todos los días de nieve, pero el estado aún no está aceptando estas solicitudes. Sin una dispensa del estado, el último día de clases deberá postergarse hasta el jueves, 19 de junio de 2014. Se le pide a los padres planificar con anticipación. Los mantendremos informados a medida que haya más información disponible.

New Visitor System at Springbrook
A network-based elcctronic visitor management system has been implemented at Springbrook High School to assist staff in identifying and verifying business of visitors to the school. This new visitor management system is part of a systemwide Montgomery County Schools initiative that eventually will be implemented in all schools.
The new visitor management system is an automated system that replaces the current paper/pencil sign-in/out logs for visitors. The new system will provide a computer, scanner, and printer to the school. Visitors' driver's licenses will be scanned, and those without identification will manually enter their information. All visitors will receive a badge to wear while in the school building.
