Banneker Principal Weekly Update

January 11 - January 15

Principal's Welcome Message and P2 Theme

Greetings Banneker Families,

This is your principal, Robert L. Carter with the Banneker Principal Weekly Update. What a great week we had last week. Students returned to 100% distance learning after the break and they all worked so hard. Kudos to all of our hardworking students. This week is another 100% distance learning week. I will continue to monitor LCPS’ timeline for the Hybrid return and communicate it with you as soon as I hear anything. It is likely that I will have more information for you on Wednesday morning after Tuesday night’s School Board meeting. Last week’s Positivity Project theme was Optimism. What a great way to start the new year with focusing on Optimism. This week’s Positivity Project theme is Prudence. Prudence means you plan for the future and achieve your goals by making careful everyday choices. Did you use prudence this semester? Keep in mind that Friday is the last day of the quarter and all student work is due this week to be counted for the 2nd quarter. I hope you enjoy the morning meeting lessons this week. Please see the note below about yearbook pictures. Yearbooks will go on sale soon but we want to make sure we have enough of your pictures to fill it. Meaghan Stevens, our librarian, has given directions in English and Spanish below for how families can upload their pictures. Let’s have a great week together.

We Need Your Pictures!!!

Hi Banneker Families!

We want to continue to document memories we make this year for our yearbook and since we will not have a Turkey Trot day or a Parade page for the yearbook this year, we would love to include snow day pictures in their place! If you could please send in pictures of the students and how they celebrated the snow days this week that would be great! You can get them to us a couple of different ways.

  1. You can join the Shutterfly site which I have included directions for in this email.
  2. You can email them to your teacher.
  3. You can send them to me at

I would love to have as many pictures as we can get and fill up those pages with snow day fun! Thank you and please email me with questions. 😊
