A group of middle school students in Montgomery County, Maryland, shared their ideas and suggestions on how to help disabled students and teachers during emergency evacuations. The six students are part of a Montgomery County FIRST LEGO League Team called Nuts and Bolts.
Richard Montgomery senior Seydi Sall could sense the doubt Tuesday evening when his team entered the Maryland 4A/3A indoor track championships. The Rockets didn’t have their top runner, Garrett Suhr, because of an injury, so the expectations for their 4x800-meter relay team were low.
Rachel Carson Elementary School Principal Deneise Hammond and several students were featured on a recent Kojo Nnamdi radio show on WAMU 88.5. The show highlighted the life and work of scientist, conservationist and poet Rachel Carson.
In Maryland, a total of 52 public and private high schools had at least one former student graduate from Harvard, Princeton or the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring ranked first with 10 former students graduating in 2018: three from Harvard, two from Princeton and five from MIT, according to PolarisList.
Student-athletes at Seneca Valley High School spent time at lunch this week making bracelets and writing kind notes to be delivered to children at local hospitals, and invited other students to participate in their efforts.
Rock Creek Forest Elementary School held its third annual Caring Week, a week that reminds students that kindness is free; it takes very little time to be kind; and that when kindness is shared with others, it will be returned in droves. During the week, students learned about random acts of kindness and how these simple acts make others feel. They created kindness cards for their classmates or for staff members, and were encouraged to include a note about what makes their peers special.
I have the privilege of having a window in my office. My window looks out into the main hallway. I love that the piano is outside of my office because I get the privilege of being serenaded most mornings and afternoons. #ListenToThis #BeGoodDoGood #AllGenresWelcome @Cburg_Coyotes pic.twitter.com/4CEtsmtN57— Alyson Foreman (@MsForemanCHSAP) February 13, 2020

Rockville forward Blessed Mbogo runs through a screen, separates from his defender and spots up at the top of the key for an open three-pointer. The ball falls through the net cleanly with that most coveted sound: swish. Rockville’s public address announcer yells his name over the home gym’s speakers. Cheerleaders shake their pompoms, and Rockville’s packed student section shouts as the Rams add on to their commanding lead. Mbogo, a 6-foot-4 senior forward and one of Rockville’s best players, doesn’t hear any of it. He is deaf.

Five MCPS history students were honored at the Maryland State House in Annapolis last month for their accomplishments at the 2019 National History Day competition.
Six-year-old Abenezer has got a new swagger about him as he moves through the school hallways this week — thanks to a community who banded together to give him a new wheelchair. Anyone who steps inside Abenezer's kindergarten classroom at Ashburton Elementary in Montgomery County will find it hard not to notice his infectious smile.
