Keeping the Crew up to Date! Volume 2 Issue 34 - 5/7/23

Greetings Clipper Nation!

Progress reports for the final term go live on the 10th. Be sure to review how your student is doing on the family portal. Let's help our students finish the year strong.

May is Children's Mental Health Matters Month. Wicomico Public Schools wants to raise awareness of the importance of children's mental health. Here at JMB, we have some activities planned to focus on mental health awareness and promoting good mental health.

During the 2nd week of May (8-12), students can participate in Coping Skills Bingo to earn a prize, and then on 3 Fridays in May, we will offer Fun Friday during lunch shifts for students to participate in games and activities.

Finally, a county-wide awareness day will be on Thursday, May 11th. Staff and students are encouraged to wear something green that day!

Dual Enrollment Updates

If you think about dual enrollment and it makes you think of students being able to take a college class while in high school, you are thinking correctly. The new and improved components are that the courses students can take have vastly expanded at Salisbury University and WorWic. The other benefit is that the courses are paid for by the county as long as they are on the approved list. If you are a parent of a current 11th or 10th grader, check out the information on the county's dual enrollment site. WCPS Dual Enrollment ( You will find the requirements to participate in dual enrollment, and by clicking on each school, you will be able to see all the courses students could be eligible to take. If you are interested or have questions, contact our guidance department.

Teacher Appreciation

The Clipper Nation needs your help! We are collecting notes, thoughts, memories and moments for teacher appreciation week. Please leave a note of kindness for one/some/all of your teachers or staff members. We will collect these, print them, and share them with teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week.
