Based on the novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens
Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play. 15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: he is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. Now it is seven minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.

This year, the Montgomery County Council sponsored their “Councilmember for a Day” competition with video entries, rather than essays. Kennedy’s Broadcast Journalism lead teacher, Mr. Andrew Inches, worked with students from different schools within MCPS to submit their entries. Mr. Inches’ group featured projects that placed in the top three positions of the competition. This was a great opportunity for collaboration for people from different schools around the county to tell powerful and unique stories.
Students can access their grades and schedules by logging into StudentVUE using their username and password from last year. Students can then access their online classes by logging into myMCPS Classroom, also using their username and password from last year. The Zoom link for each class is available in myMCPS Classroom.
ParentVUE is the new online platform where parents and guardians can access student schedules, grades, attendance information, and more. A video overview of this resource is provided on the MCPS website, and all parents should have received ParentVUE activation information via e-mail or regular mail in late August. If you have difficulty with activating accounts, or if you do not receive either an email or hard copy mailer communication, you should contact the MCPS helpline at (240) 740-7023.
If families did not receive an email with ParentVUE activation information, call 240-740-7020 or email email@example.com. If you are able to access ParentVUE but can only see information for some (not all) of your children, please complete this form: ParentVUE - Account Activated But Missing Students. Staff in the MCPS technology office will then resolve the issue.
