Congratulations! Our two 5th grade students Judith and Ruben represented  our school very proudly during the MCPS "Are You Up to the 5th Grade?" Challenge. The event, which was held  at the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center in Silver Spring, was about testing local celebrity contestants on their knowledge of Grade 5 facts. Judith and Ruben collaborated with other 5th grade students answering questions ( math, science art, music and reading) . Former Teacher of the year Kimberly Oliver Burnim (and former JoAnn Leleck teacher) was the "teacher of the class". Click here to watch the video.
