PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY EDUCATION BRIEFS: Online Student Exhibit

Through June 30, PGCPS’ virtual art exhibit showcases student work created over the course of this school year.

Students from early childhood to 12th grade are featured in the virtual exhibit.

Meanwhile, works from teachers are on display in the Prince George’s County Arts and Humanities Council’s online gallery.

The student exhibit is dedicated to showcasing student work created in the 2019-2020 school year both prior and during the pandemic.

Teachers’ Art Exhibits

Art teachers from across the PGCPS system submitted work for the online teacher exhibit.

Works were made within the past year, either before or during the coronavirus pandemic.

Summer Programs

PGCPS Virtual Summer Learning Programs offer students opportunities for acceleration, enrichment, credit recovery, or original credit during the summer.

This summer, all programs will be offered virtually and there are no fees to participate. Summer offerings may change, so check for updates.

The Summer Programs Office’s email address is summerschool@pgcps.org.

Last Day of School

The last day of school for students will be June 15. Teachers will end the school year on June 17.

Distance learning concluded on June 8. From June 9 to June 15, students will be allowed to complete make-up work as PGCPS transitions to summer.

An updated school calendar is available online at www.pgcps.org/calendar.

Green School Certification

PGCPS continues to lead the state with the highest number of new Maryland Green Schools certifications.

This year, 10 schools earned certification and 30 schools were recertified, raising the total number of Green Schools to 131.

Crossland High School, Chesapeake Math & IT (CMIT) Academy, CMIT North Middle School and Dwight D. Eisenhower Middle School joined six elementary schools in earning first-time certification: Hillcrest Heights, Hollywood, James Ryder Randall, Judge Sylvania Woods, Mount Rainier and Rosa Parks.

Science Fair Winners

PGCPS recently conducted a virtual science fair to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of students as they completed STEM projects.

PGCPS students took three of the top four slots last month in the 72nd annual Prince George’s Area Science Fair. Student projects from public schools in three counties — Calvert, Prince George’s and St. Mary’s, as well as from several Prince George’s County charter and private schools, were showcased.

Digital Library Resources

PGCPS’s Research Portal provides students with online encyclopedias, full-text articles, primary resources, videos and more.

Access the entire ebooks collection of PGCPS through Sora. Connect the app to Prince George’s County Memorial Library System (PGCMLS) for one point of access.

Students can also access the list of usernames and passwords, contact their librarian and/or the Office of Library Media.

Dorothy Rowley – Washington Informer Staff Writer

I knew I had to become a writer when at age nine I scribbled a note to my younger brother’s teacher saying I thought she was being too hard on him in class. Well, the teacher immediately contacted my mother, and with tears in her eyes, profusely apologized. Of course, my embarrassed mother dealt with me – but that didn’t stop me from pursuing my passion for words and writing. Nowadays, as a “semi-retiree,” I continue to work for the Washington Informer as a staff writer. Aside from that, I keep busy creating quirky videos for YouTube, participating in an actor’s guild and being part of my church’s praise dance team and adult choir. I’m a regular fixture at the gym, and I like to take long road trips that have included fun-filled treks to Miami, Florida and Jackson, Mississippi. I’m poised to take to the road again in early 2017, headed for New Orleans, Louisiana. This proud grandmother of two – who absolutely adores interior decorating – did her undergraduate studies at Virginia Union University and graduate work at Virginia State University.
