From the Principal

Hello, Cecilton Family,

The upcoming week is a busy one for us at Cecilton. The second marking period ends on Wednesday, January 27, and the third marking period beings on Thursday, January 28. Please be sure to work with your child to make sure all graded assignments are completed and turned in to teachers. Information about what students will learn in the third marking period is here: 3rd Marking Period Course Descriptions.

In the month of January each school year, we begin thinking about the Teacher of the Year process. CCPS has recently announced that nominations are now being accepted for Cecil County's Teacher of the Year award. If you are interested in nominating a Cecilton teacher, please reach out to me at mbpugh@ccps.org. Teacher of the Year Flyer


Stay Safe and Be Well,

Ms. Brown
