The Office of Curriculum and Instructional Programs has prepared online learning activities located in the myMCPS portal for students in Pre-K–12. These materials are designed for multiple weeks of instructional activities and have been differentiated for ESOL and special education. In order to access the resources, students will need to know their MCPS Google account (.net) password. Students/families will be able access instructional activities from a single landing page on the MCPS website. On Friday, March 13, 2020 schools should have students go into the Curriculum Contingency website on the MCPS Homepage and join the appropriate class. Here is the Middle School Link: https://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/curriculum/contingency/
All students will be asked if they do or do not have access to the internet or a device at home. If not - they will be given a paper packet before they leave school today.
The Craft Day in the Media Center is postponed until after our break.
If you are looking for something to read over the next few weeks, please stop by the media center sometime today. We have lots of new books ready for you! You can borrow up to 6 books at a time! We even have a few books to give away to some lucky students!
Have you read 3 or more Black-Eyed Susan nominated books this year? You have until April 16 to complete this task and then you will be able to vote for your favorite story at our voting party. This is a Maryland State Book Award - more than 83,000 students voted last year!! See Mrs. Walker in the media center to complete the coupons and rate your books. Some great titles have been nominated for the award this year!!
The Baker SGA is sponsoring the Pennies for Patients campaign again to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We are accepting online donations for the month of March. Please visit www.penniesforpatients.org and search for Baker Middle School. During the week of March 23-March 31, we will be doing classroom donations in Period 1 and students can bring in their spare change to donate that week. Thank you so much for helping Baker support this great cause.
Have a great day at Baker, "There's no Limitation to our Imagination"
