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.

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.
