The Maryland Agricultural Education Foundation (MAEF) Mobile Science Lab will conduct an in-house field trip at TPES on March 20, 21, 22, 23 & 24, 2023. The purpose of this exciting science opportunity is to enhance students’ knowledge of science and agriculture in the state of Maryland and in Montgomery County. Inside the MAEF Mobile Science Lab, students will have an opportunity to participate in a lesson or investigation that will focus on how agri-science is applied to protecting the environment, DNA usage, and how agricultural products are developed and used in everyday life. The lessons and investigations chosen best align with the MCPS curriculum and will be taught by MAEF teaching staff. Classroom teachers will remain with their classes while visiting the MAEF Mobile Science Lab. If you have signed up to volunteer, please come at your scheduled time. If you are unsure of your scheduled time please email Ms. East at Samikia_East@mcpsmd.org.
There has been a recent increase in the number of head lice cases at TPES. Should your child contract lice he, she or they must be treated and nit free before returning to school. Please let us know so that we can keep track of the number of cases and notify parents as the need arises.
