First-quarter progress reports
Progress reports are quarterly reports of a student’s academic performance and attendance.
First-quarter progress reports will be posted Tuesday, October 4 through Thursday, October 6 in Campus Portal. When a student's progress report is available, families will receive a notification in Campus Portal in the "Message Center". Families can get a paper copy of their student’s progress report during Parent-Teacher conferences on Wednesday, October 5.
To access student progress reports, please sign in to Campus Portal.
Maryland Teacher of the Year announcement
Congratulations to 2022 - 23 Maryland Teacher of the Year finalist Berol Dewdney! Ms. Dewdney is a pre-K teacher at Commodore John Rodgers Elementary/ Middle School, who believes that education should be rooted in love and the neuroscience of “brain fitness.”
Tune in to MPT2 on October 6 at 8 p.m for the Maryland Teacher of the Year special where they will announce the winner!

Please help us in our efforts to make kindness go viral.
