A Look Ahead
May 2 International Night

• MCPS will make up two snow days. The Maryland State Department of Education has approved a plan for MCPS to hold school on Monday, April 21, 2014 (Easter Monday) and Friday, June 13, 2014, which will now be the last day of school for students. None of the remaining snow days will have to be made up under the state-approved plan.

• Bike Safety Week will be held from April 28 through May 2 for students in grades 3-5 during their PE classes. This is a fun way to learn bicycle safety. No equipment is necessary from home. No previous bike riding experience required. Safety equipment and bikes are provided courtesy of the Montgomery County Rec. Dept.

• Register now for Camp Bells Mill for our students entering Grades 1-5 and Kinder-Camp for students entering Kindergarten. Camp will be held July 7-25, 8:30 am to noon. The cost is $450 for 15 half-day sessions. There are opportunities for tuition reduction based on income eligibility. Our own great teachers will offer fun activities in science, technology, arts and crafts, and physical education. Math and reading are incorporated in the activities. All aspects of the program support the MCPS curriculum. Check backpacks for registration forms, or visit the Bells Mill home page.

• We had a very successful Kindergarten Orientation. We need your help to encourage any new families who move into our area to register for next year as soon as possible. It is important for us to have accurate numbers of incoming students for next year as it impacts the staffing we have for our students. Thanks for your support and help in getting all of our students in the area registered.

Thank you for being partners in your child’s education.
