March PTSA Replacement
We are canceling the March PTSA meeting and encouraging every parent to come to Community Day with Superintendent Joshua P. Starr. The meeting in being held on March 11 from 7:30 to 9:00 in the Blake Auditorium. Dr. Starr will spend the day meeting with staff and students as he visits schools throughout the Northeast Consortium and Sherwood cluster. He will end this Community Day with a Town Hall meeting for parents, where you can ask questions and share your thoughts and ideas. Free childcare (ages 4 and up) and interpretation services will be provided. For more information, visit the MCPS website at www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org and search “Community Days”, or call 301-279-3100. I hope you will be able to join Dr. Starr at the Town Hall meeting on March 11. This meeting is open to everyone in the Consortium but we want a big turnout from Blake so please plan to attend.
Parent Peer Meetings
Every grade is having a Parent Peer Meeting in March. These are important meetings to garner information specific to your student’s grade. The Senior Meeting is particularly important as you will receive information about Graduation and other end of year activities. Whether you’re student is in Grade 9 or Grade 12 (or in multiples!!) you won’t want to miss these important meetings. Most Parent Peer Meetings will be held in the Blake Amphitheater.
