Please click on the link to download the letter sent to our families on July 23 regarding reopening plans for our school.
Uniform Update and More
Students may choose to wear either the regular school uniform or the PE uniform every day. The PE uniform will continue to be required on PE days. The school shoe must be a white tennis shoe, with white or light non-marking soles. The shoe itself may have colored markings, such as logos. Our uniform closet has an ample supply of uniforms. Please contact the school office at (301) 447-3161, Monday – Thursday, to set up a time to visit the closet. If you need additional PE T-shirts, they must be ordered through the front office no later than August 3. A form was mailed home with report cards or you may download it from the website.
Please pray for Lester Wooden, brother of Sister Margaret Ann (Gr 2 teacher), who was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer.

Whichever class has the most likes and shares will be rewarded with a Brilliant Banana Split Bar and 20 minutes extra recess!

We will also be sharing it on Instagram and Twitter, but only the Facebook likes/shares will count as votes.
