Dear Team BCPS,

On March 6 and 7, we are partnering with the Community College of Baltimore County to bring more than 100 universities, colleges, and proprietary and military schools to College Fair 2018. I hope that our families and students are able to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about colleges from across the country.

We’ve launched a re-boot of our Growing Up Digital website to provide more resources for families and educators about online safety and responsibility. The site has been redesigned to be more user-friendly, visually engaging, and content-rich.

I look forward to reading poetry from our second annual Team BCPS Haiku Contest, which reinforces student choice and creativity in writing. Last year’s contest attracted more than 1,650 entries from students in all grades, and we hope to hear from even more students this year. A winner will be announced from each school level - elementary, middle, and high - and dozens of poems will be published with student artwork in this year’s book. Students may submit one haiku on the theme “How Reading Makes You Feel” by March 29.

On March 28, the Education Foundation will present the sixth annual State of the Schools with the theme, “Read the History, Write the Future.” More than 200 students will showcase their talents as hosts, performers, and presenters in the inaugural Learning Walk of Knowledge, which will share innovative, real-world student projects.
