Click here for a link to the weekly activities! Last week all students and staff were asked to use chalk to draw/write positive messages on the sidewalk, and to post pictures of their drawings/messages to social media using the hashtags #BCPSCares and #MindOverMatters. High school students are asked to submit stories about how being LGBTQ has impacted their lives.

What is Parent University?

Parent University is offered through the BCPS Office of Family and Community Engagement, which we affectionately call FACE! We provide tools and resources to BPCS families to support learning at home. In the past, before social-distancing, one of the ways we offered these resources was through in-person workshops hosted by community members and schools. We also have a large collection of online resources that are available as we navigate through this incredibly unique time in our lives. We hope you enjoy what we have to share.
