*Senior exams

If students need to take a makeup exam, they must first obtain administrative approval, then make arrangements with their teacher. As you can see from the schedule above, the school day for seniors will get progressively shorter as they take their exams. Once they have taken their exams, they do not have to go back to that class. The day of their exam will be their last day in that class. If they do not have an exam for a particular period, they must attend that class until the exam period for that class has ended. Example: If a senior does not have a period 7 exam on Friday, May 17th, he/she must still attend that class. He/she will not have to go back to that class on Tuesday, May 19th

Springbrook and Lenovo Kick-Off an “App-”mazing Partnership

On Friday, November 21, 2014, Springbrook High School welcomed Lenovo Executives, staff from the National Academy Foundation (the parent organization of the Academy of Information Technology (AOIT)), staff from the Montgomery County Public Schools’ Foundations Office, and staff and students into one of their advanced computer classes. The purpose of this gathering was to celebrate the commencement of Springbrook’s AOIT partnership with Lenovo and students’ participation in the Lenovo Scholar Network, a program to enhance students’ technical and entrepreneurial skills. 

Earlier this year, Springbrook’s AOIT students, along with nine other schools across the country, won the opportunity to participate in this prestigious program where students compete against each other in designing, developing, and marketing a mobile applications. To aid in this competition, Lenovo donates ThinkPad Laptops and Yoga tablets to schools. As of November, students are currently in the design and testing phase of their apps. As part of their partnership, Lenovo executives and AOIT staff visited Springbrook to show support to students and see their progress. 

 As students showcased their apps, Steve Boden, coordinator of the Foundations Office noted, “This is a wonderful opportunity for our students. They are able to have a rigorous curriculum and learn advanced computer skills. Students also learn how to do product testing and marketing to consumers. They are putting their acquired skills to use and are acting as entrepreneurs while having the guidance and expertise of MCPS instructors and Lenovo volunteers. The experience provides them with an exciting learning environment while allowing them to acquire skills that will benefit them in their post-secondary education and in their careers.

2014 Beat the Odds Scholarship Winner

From the news release (click picture to right for video): "Monica Chica is an amazing young woman. She was born and raised in El Salvador. Just two years ago, when she was fifteen years old, Monica arrived to USA, and didn't know a word of English. Not only did she learn a new language in a new school in a new country, her first year she moved from English language learner into regular classes then honors and AP classes, skipped a grade and played a varsity sport she'd never played before. And that's not all. Monica has had to endure poverty, the loss of her old life in El Salvador and separation from her best friend, her mother. With wisdom far beyond her years, Monica says, "The most important lesson I've learned is that being happy is not about having with you what you loved in the past, but learning to love what you have in the present."

Italia, stiamo arrivando!

On April 2nd of this year, a small group of students from the Italian class will be going on a “trip to remember.” We start in Milan to make our way down to Pompeii and back again. This trip will certainly culturize the few, and give them memories they will never forget. It all started one year ago, in the first quarter of Signora Mancuso’s first year Italian class at Springbrook, when she proposed a trip to Italy. With a little push, she got a sufficient number of students interested in the trip and soon persuaded them to actually go. The students paid the fee and from there they started counting down the days. During the count down, Signora Mancuso taught the culture of Italy and hosted meetings with parents, she also asked for proper traveling documents. Lastly, just two weeks before the trip, she hosted a final parent meeting, and asked the students to attend as well. At this meeting, she spoke in more details of the trip itinerary and shared traveling advice, she also gave out free backpacks for the tour to all. The more details she gave of the trip, the brighter the students’ faces got. It’s been a long and anticipated year, but it’s finally here. Buon viaggio -- that's safe travels to the whole group!

Letter to Parents from the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians: 

 I want to share with you information about an event that has affected our school and how it was handled by our staff. I am sending you this letter to give you the facts and to assure you that we are addressing this incident. 

On Monday evening, September 15, 2014, the boys' football locker rooms were disinfected after a member of the team developed an unknown condition that we were initially concerned may be staph. It was later determined that the student did not have staph. On Tuesday morning, September 16, 2014, additional precautionary measures were taken to safeguard that the equipment also was disinfected to ensure that if it was a staph infection that the students would be safe. 

The locker room was cleaned appropriately with an approved disinfectant. However, the same disinfectant was used to clean the equipment, which was not appropriate. On Wednesday morning, September 17, 2014, we received calls from the parents of several football players, who were complaining of rashes and burns on their shoulders, neck, and chest. I met personally with members of the football teams and reached out to all families of students who indicated they felt some burning or other reaction. The parents of all varsity players also were notified. We are working with the MCPS Division of Systemwide Safety to guarantee that all necessary steps are taken to rectify this situation. 

I want to apologize to the students and parents who were affected by this incident. We take the safety of our students very seriously. The actions in this instance, while done with good intent, were unacceptable. We will take the necessary steps to ensure that our staff understands the proper way to clean school equipment so that nothing like this ever happens again. 

If you have further questions, please call the school at 301 -989-5700.
