Dear Patapsco families:

As we approach the end of our school year, I want to recognize the dedication and resiliency of our students, families, and community. As well as, our staff, who have without a doubt have demonstrated their commitment to learning and care for our students. No one could have imagined our school year ending this way, and I want to thank everyone for their support, grace, and patience as we navigated through these unprecedented times. 

I want to uplift the amazing newest Knights that we had the pleasure to meet this week. We had our virtual school visit last Monday and we are excited for our newest Knights to join us next school year. We want to thank the staff and communities of Hollifield Station, St. John’s Lane, and Waverly Elementary schools for providing the space in their day for us to meet our students and for all of their efforts to prepare them for middle school. 

Finally, I want to acknowledge and elevate our fantastic 8th grade students.  They are an amazing group of students and we will miss them tremendously next year! We know they will have great success in high school and that they will continue to make a positive impact on the lives of others as they have done here at Patapsco. Please look out for our celebration video that will be released on June 22! 

Have a wonderful weekend.

Take care and be well,

Mike Babe
