Keeping the Crew up to Date! Volume 1 Issue 32 - 5/1/22

Greetings Clipper Nation!

It is May. Can you believe it? Last week our students participated in school spirit week organized by our SGA, and this coming week we will promote Children's mental health awareness. We will have special activities throughout the week. Please see the informing in the full newsletter.

We have been seeing a lot of crop tops recently as the temperatures have increased. Please encourage your student to dress appropriately for school. This includes not having shorts that are too short and no midriffs showing.

Again, just so it does not sneak up on us, a reminder that mid-term is right around the corner as teachers must submit progress report grades on May 9th and progress reports go live on May 11th.

Senior parents, if you want another resource to help stay up to date, check out

The Wicomico County Board of Education has announced the names of three finalists for the next Superintendent of Schools, and has outlined plans for gathering community input during this stage of the superintendent search. On Thursday, May 5th, video interviews, and bios for all three finalists will be posted on this page of the school system’s website: We encourage everyone in our community to review the information for the three finalists and then provide input through a survey, which will be accessible from the page about the finalists from May 5th-12th. The Board of Education appreciates the community’s willingness to take part in the important process of selecting the next leader of Wicomico County Public Schools.

Tonight is once again a big night for a former JMB graduate Jay Copeland as he competes to stay on American Idol. Let's keep working as a community to vote for Jay Copeland. Please see the voting details below.

Children's Mental Health Matters Week

May 1st-6th, 2022 is Children's Mental Health Awareness Week in Maryland. Children’s mental health impacts: How children think, feel, and act; How children relate to self and others; How children manage change, stress, and handle other life situations; It is also critical to how children explore their environment, develop, and learn.

1 in 4 children experience a mental emotional or behavioral health condition before age 18. These children are experiencing a surge of depression, anxiety, trauma, loneliness, suicidality, and substance use that will have lasting impacts on them, their families, and their communities.

Mental health awareness helps all children have opportunities to be successful in school, at home, in the community, and in their future adult lives. This week students will be learning how to help themselves and others feel better when they are sad, worried, angry, or scared and how to care for their physical, social, and mental health.

To learn more about the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions and resources for help, contact our school social workers, Ms. Bradford and Ms. Mitchell ( or visit
