BES Spring Extended Learning Opportunities/Sign Up Deadline APRIL 5th

We are very excited to be able to offer to BES students a variety of Extended Learning Opportunities/ELO beginning Tuesday, April 13th.  The goal of the ELO program is to provide a wide array of  in-person and virtual learning experiences.  Please note that there are only a specific number of openings per activity.  We will be offering the activities in 4-week cycles to ensure that many students have the opportunity to participate.  Dates for each experience will be specified in the description.   A few clubs will require an additional material pick-up, student pick up/drop off at school, or require students to have their own instruments.   Club offerings will fill up fast!  If your child happens to miss out on an ELO opportunity this round, there will be another opportunity.

At this time, we are asking families to sign up for only one activity per child.   Once registered, the teacher leading the ELO activity will be in contact with the family.  If you have further questions, please feel free to contact Jason Rubeling/Assistant Principal via email-thomas.rubeling@fcps.org .

FCPS Challenges Program to Change Name

he Frederick County Public Schools Challenges Program will soon be changing its name to either Communication Connections or Expressions, and we would love your vote, and feedback, on the final selection.

The Challenges Program provides integrated support to students with autism and/or severe communication disorders.

A workgroup was organized to create a new moniker that would not only embody the purpose of the program, but would also evoke a sense of optimism associated with positive student outcomes. The group discussed many possibilities, settling on two names. The public is being asked to weigh in.

If you would like to vote for your preference, please visit the following weblink to do so: https://pubforms.fcps.org/view.php?id=81174.

Voting will close April 16.
