Your Local Library

The Washington County Free Library offers SO many exciting opportunities for learning, reading and collaborating. If you haven't had an opportunity to see the NEW library in downtown Hagerstown, I encourage you to stop by for a visit. Also, remember the Boonsboro Library is very close and offers free wi-fi for it's patrons. Additionally, they have a variety of student and family activities. Check out the Washington County Library Homepage!

Absences & Tardies

THANK YOU families! We have decreased the number of tardy arrivals this year as compared to last. We appreciate your support with this, it makes a huge difference. If your child misses school for any reason, please be sure to send a signed note to school stating the reason for the absence. All students received pink parent notes in their welcome pack at the beginning of this year. If you need another, please just call the front office and we can send one home.

Join us at our next PTA meeting! Wednesday, January 20th from 6:00 - 7:00 in the media center.
