Give BACKpacks to MCPS Students in 2015

The 2015 MCPS Give BACKpacks campaign is under way and MCPS needs your help to raise money to purchase backpacks filled with school supplies for students in need. Last year, the district gave out more than 19,000 backpacks thanks to the generosity of staff and community members.
A backpack filled with school supplies costs $10, and donors can sponsor a student, a classroom, a grade level or an entire school.

All MCPS seventh grade students must receive vaccination against Tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) and Meningococcal meningitis (MCV4) before the start of the 2015-2016 school year. Students not in compliance with Maryland vaccination requirements may be excluded from attending school until they provide documentation of the required Tdap and MCV immunizations. The requirements are in place throughout the State of Maryland.
