Community Forum on Bell Times

Superintendent Joshua P. Starr is recommending that MCPS consider changing school starting and ending times, also know as bell times. Dr. Starr is recommending that high schools start 50 minutes later, middle schools start 10 minutes earlier, and that the elementary school day be extended by 30 minutes. MCPS would like to hear from you on this proposal. The next opportunity to provide your input on this issue is Monday, February 10, at Montgomery Blair High School, located at 51 University Bvld., East, Silver Spring. The forum will take place from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. Free child care (ages 4 and older) and interpretation services will be provided. To request a sign language interpreter, please call 301-517-5539 or visit www.educationalinterpreters.com/mcps.

Redskins' Garçon gives Springbrook Football New Uniforms

Thank you to the Redskins' Pierre Garçon and Russell Athletics for their generous contribution to the football program! “I decided to sponsor high school football teams, because youth football meant so much to me growing up,” [Pierre] Garçon wrote in the message. “I thought this would be a good way to give back. It is important for me to sponsor local football programs because I wanted to show gratitude to the people of Washington, D.C., and surrounding areas for the support they have given me in just my first year with the Redskins. I want to get more involved with Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland charities to show how thankful I am to be a part of this area and to show my fans that I appreciate their support.”...<read more>

Our math team won again (at Paint Branch). Scores were as follows: Springbrook A (13), Good Counsel (10), Springbrook B (6), Kennedy (6), Good Counsel B (2), Paint Branch (did not have a team), Blake (did not show), Sherwood (did not show). With only one meet left (the big meet), we’re still number one in our consortium. On the ‘power question’ meet (about a month ago, we were only beaten by the Blair Magnet team. Yes, we were able to beat the ‘W’ schools) We were second overall in that very difficult meet. Thanks again for the wonderful support that we get!

Technology Modernization at Springbrook

This summer all of the computer systems at Springbrook were replaced as part of the County's Technology Modernization Project. Total numbers inched up to approximately 825 computers across 16 labs (plus an additional wireless laptop lab), all running Windows 7. Lead on the project at Springbrook was Naveed Nadjmabadi, class of 2010, now a junior at The University of Maryland, College Park. Naveed was also joined by Alex Golden (class of 2010), and Anthony Rozario (class of 2012). All three were Academy of Information Technology (AIOT) graduates and interned with Mr. Garrett (Information Technology) after gaining skills in technology classes taught by Mr. Thaniel (Lan systems mgmt) and Mr. Yongpradit (Computer Science). After graduating Springbrook, all three edged out candidates from top schools across the county, including universities, and were hired, with a competitive technology-industry salary, after interviews with engineers and management from Montgomery County Public Schools. They join the ranks of other recent Springbrook graduates who have gone on to top technology positions with local companies such as Lockheed Martin, National Security Agency, and NASA.
