Happy New Year

As we begin the 2023 year, please work to prepare for inclement weather. It is possible that school may be closed during the next few months due to bad weather. In the event of a weather closure, it is possible that school may be held virtually. If you do not have a device at your home that your child can use to do online learning, please request one using the link below. This is not guaranteed but we want all families to be prepared should going virtual on a snow day occurs. if you are in need of a Mifi device to get internet access, please contact your child's teacher. There will only be one Mifi device per family.

Devices will go home in the student’s backpack.

Virtual PTA Meeting

There will be a virtual PTA meeting on Tuesday, January 3, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. The Zoom link will be sent on Tuesday afternoon.

Yearbook cover contest rules:

● Artwork should be drawn on an 8 ½ x 11 plain piece of paper. All designs must be VERTICALLY oriented (like this flyer).

● The theme for our cover should be about caring and respecting one another.

● All artwork must be original works from the student (no tracing) and the images and phrases must be school appropriate.

● Your design should include the name of the school and the school year: Takoma Park Elementary, 2022-2023

● Submit your design to Ms. Brown by Friday, January 6, 2023.

Tips for a good entry:

Yearbook Cover Contest


Montgomery Blair High School is excited to host a STEM night on January 26th from 6-8pm in the Student Activity Center located at the University Blvd. entrance. This event is open to DCC K-5 students who have completed the linked registration form. The event is being hosted by the Math honor society and will feature activities in the health services, robotics, engineering, neuroscience, mathematics, coding and more. A strong turn-out of excited elementary students would mean the world to our student volunteers. Due to space limitations, we are limiting the event to the first 200 students to sign up.
