From the Principal’s Desk…


Quick notes as we begin our much anticipated Spring Break:

  • Students return Tuesday, April 18 and will still follow the Knight Time schedule. As we will be starting a new quarter, and students will not have participated in recent instruction, students will learn about autism in honor of Autism Awareness month.

  • Our band and choral groups participated in the annual adjudications this month and did Patapsco proud! Congratulations to the 7/8 Chamber Singers and 7/8 Treble Chorus on receiving Overall Superior ratings at the Howard County Middle School Choral Festival at Long Reach High School and to our Wind Ensemble for their Superior ratings, as well!

  • For 8th grade parents/guardians: The 8th grade Promotion Ceremony is scheduled for the morning of Monday, June 12th. Due to the space limitations of the MHHS auditorium, each student will receive two tickets to the event. The annual 8th grade Celebration will be held at Patapsco on the same date in the the afternoon. For more information, please visit our website.

Today, our students participated in the third annual Career Day. It was a resounding success! We could not have offered our students such varied exposure to the world of work without the volunteerism of our parents and community members. We are ever so thankful to each and every one of them. In particular, we’d like to thank Mrs. Stephenson for her tireless work at organizing the event. As soon as we have pictures to share, you can bet they will be posted on our various sites.

Have a safe and restful break - whatever your plans may be!
Cindy Dillon
