My Favorite Teacher

Does your child have a favorite teacher?  What a wonderful way to recognize those special teachers in our children’s lives.


Students are encouraged to submit a short essay about their favorite teacher now through Monday, October 6th to be entered to win an Amazon Kindle Fire HDX!

Last year, we had hundreds of submissions and we would love to see nominations come in for a teacher at your school.

Welcome Back

I hope you and your child had a successful back-to-school season! 

We hope you will consider joining our PTA organization – yes, the membership is annual, so you must renew every year.  

There are membership forms in the school office - $15 individual or $20 household.  A portion of the dues go to the Montgomery County, State of Maryland and National PTA organizations – with the remainder going to support the programs of the PTA.
