DON’T MISS BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT!

Every MCPS school holds a Back-to-School Night for families at the beginning of the school year. Back-to-School Night is a great opportunity for parents to meet their child’s teachers, learn more about what your child will learn in class and find out other important information about school procedures and expectations.
