STOMP Out Bullying™

Every October, schools across the country join the nationwide campaign, STOMP Out Bullying™ in observing National Bullying Prevention Month. Throughout the month, Ms Lee and Ms Kempthorn will engage Patapsco Middle School students in school wide activities, classroom lessons, and morning announcements focused on Bullying Prevention.

Our goal is to come together, as #OnePatapsco, to stop bullying and cyberbullying. By increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of bullying and by empowering our students we can put an end to bullying and cyberbullying.

October 1st is World Day of Bullying Prevention™ and kicks off National Bullying Prevention Month. On this day students, schools, and communities all over the world go BLUE together against bullying. Show your #OnePatapsco pride and wear BLUE!

 

Save the Date- Oct. 24th, 2018 Unity Day- we are asking all students to wear Orange in support of putting an end to bullying.

Student Leadership Opportunity

New to Patapsco- Student Leadership Cadre: The Knights of the Round Table!

The Knights of the Round Table is a group of students that will engage with one another to: promote school spirit, develop leadership skills, plan school initiatives, serve as school ambassadors, and work with the advisors and the administration on building a sense of community and spirit among students. This is an exciting opportunity for students who want to get involved, build their leadership capacity, and plan some student-led initiatives at Patapsco.

 

In short we:

Sincerely,

Mr. Babe, Ms. Glass, Ms. Kempthorn, and Ms. Lee

 

 

Additional Class Information

We have been in school for a month and we want to make sure our students have consistency in their education and the opportunity for success in each curriculum. With that said, Course Placement Review forms (request for level change) will not be accepted after Monday, October 15th.
 
As of October 18th, any student who is in Algebra I or any 8th grade World Language student who drops the course will receive a “W” as a withdraw on their high school transcript.
 
Please contact your child’s counselor if you have any questions.
