That's a wrap on the 2022-2023 school year! As we bid farewell to another year of growth, learning, and memory-making, we want to take a moment to thank everyone- parents, students, teachers, and staff- for making this yet another amazing year at MCPS. Just 82 days until the 2023-2024 year begins!

On Monday, AHES second grade students spent the day learning outdoors with the Dan River Basin Association! They began their day on the banks of the Smith River where they released the trout they have been raising as part of DRBA's Trout in the Classroom program, then continued at Philpott Lake where students participated in hands-on lessons designed to teach them the importance of being good stewards of their environment. Thank you to the DRBA team, Philpott Park Ranger Dillon Brown, AHES STEM teacher Ms. Witt, and Ms. Childress' high school AP biology students who came along to help the younger students! This trip was made possible by a grant from the National Park Trust's Kids to Parks Day Program.

Environmental ambassadors at MCPS? 🌎 Of course! Albert Harris Elementary students were busy last week helping to promote environmental awareness and conservation by sharing Earth Day messages on paper grocery bags. Some lucky Food Lion shoppers πŸ›’ who chose paper over plastic on Earth Day received their groceries packaged in some of these special bags. Our students are making the world a better place for us all! πŸƒ

☘️ This morning, a beautiful rainbow briefly appeared over Patrick Henry Elementary School! One lucky leprechaun was outside to witness the magical moment. Instances like this that remind us that our schools are not just places of learning, but treasures in our community, just like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! 🌈🌟
