Thank you for taking the time over the past few
weeks to discuss, review, and sign the Great Seneca Creek Acceptable Use of
Technology Agreement. As we have seen in the media lately, teaching our children
how to use technology and the internet responsibly is an important lesson that
requires continuous dialogue. We know that teaching and modeling
digital citizenship doesn't end in the classroom. Home environments also shape
kids' relationships with technology. While we promote technology use for
learning, fun, and bringing people together, it's also important to balance
media and tech use with undistracted face-to-face time. Please join us in
sending the message to our children about the importance of device free time by
taking the #DeviceFreeDinnerChallenge with your family this week.
food drive begins on Monday, October 3rd and ends on Friday, October
28th. Our school goal is to collect 821 pounds of food. Last
year we collected 747 pounds. Food items most needed include: cereal,
canned vegetables, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, tuna fish, and
rice. Each classroom will have their own box for food collection.
Please send your child into school with the food items. They will take
these items to their classroom and place them in the box. If you have any
questions or would like to make a cash donation, please contact Ms. Wert at Elizabeth_A_Wert@mcpsmd.org.

If you have gently used children's books (picture and chapter) you would like to donate to students who may not have access to reading materials, please box/bag them up and bring them into the Great Seneca Creek Library anytime. Our media specialist and reading specialist will help make sure the books are matched appropriately with children who may need them.
Bullfrog's school supply list for the 2016-2017 school year is now available.
Please report all your volunteer hours for our school! Whether you help in your child's classroom, help in the library, volunteer for a field trip, help out at home, etc. - we keep track of all the volunteer hours! There is a volunteer notebook in the front office by the front door. Please fill out a sheet with your name and sign in and out every time you volunteer at the school. The sheets are tabulated and sent in to MCPS by the 10th of the next month. We appreciate all our amazing volunteers and are grateful for any time you can donate to the school. Thank you!
