Happy 3rd week of school!
I wanted to advise families of scholars in grades 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th that PARCC scores from school year 2017-2018 will be sent home with your scholars today, September 21. Please review the score reports.
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a set of assessments that measure whether students are on track to be successful in college and careers. Here is an attachment with resource to help you better understand your scholar’s score (Understand the Score). Our curriculum for all academic subjects is Common Core which is aligned to PARCC. Scholars in grades 3 though 8 will also participate in PARCC simulations starting in October to help them feel more comfortable with the assessment. We will have a PARCC Night for Families, again this year to give families a better understanding of the assessment.
Scholars who don’t have required immunizations will be excluded from school. ALL scholars entering Kindergarten shot records should be up-to-date and 7th Grade for SY 2018-2019 immunizations (Tdap & Meningcoccal) must be current prior to return to school September 4, 2018. Please complete immunizations and send copy to school as soon as possible.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
New School hours: 8:10 am.-3:00 pm.
The tardy bell will ring at 8:30 am, scholars who come in Tardy, will need to come to office to check in and then be released to class. Parent pick up will begin when the bell rings at 3:00 pm.
No one will be signed out after 2:30pm for early release.
For the safety of our scholars, No parents will be allowed in the hallways after scholars enter the building.
For more information please contact our front office at (301) 817-0544
For the school year 2018-2019 and beyond we are shifting back to our traditional dress code at Imagine Morningside to include Oxford shirts, khaki bottoms and dress shoes. We are adding a blazer to fit our new Microsociety curriculum program.

Just wanted to share our Field Day attire so that you have some time to plan accordingly! As usual, each grade level is assigned a different colored shirt to wear for the day – this helps us to identify grades quickly if we need to find someone. Scholars will be permitted to wear only khaki/uniform shorts to go with their grade-level specific colored shirts. Colors are as follows:
Kindergarten – Purple…
1st Grade – Gray
2nd Grade – Red
3rd Grade – Pink
4th Grade – Yellow
5th Grade – Blue
6th Grade – Orange
7th Grade – Green
I hope you had a relaxing weekend! I’m also reaching out today because we are in need of donations of equipment needed for our Field Day event. Field Day is on June 1 and it is fast approaching! Please click the link below if you are interested in helping out by purchasing some items. I have attached links for most of the items and also an Amazon Wish List for the other items. Any donations we receive come with a letter that you may use for tax purposes.
Thanks everyone for continuing to support our Field Day event year after year!

The Prince George’s County Board of Education unanimously approved Thursday fully restoring Spring Break and closing schools next week. Students and teachers will return to school April 9.
Legislation put forward by State Sen. Nancy J. King would allow school systems to extend the school year five days beyond June 15, the current last day for students, without receiving a waiver from the State Board of Education. Once signed by the governor, the law will allow Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) more options to meet state requirements for the number of hours and days for students.
Five inclement weather makeup days were built into the approved 2017-2018 School Calendar, including two at the end of fourth quarter (June 14 and 15); one on the February 9 professional development day; and two during Spring Break (April 5 and 6). Dr. Maxwell withdrew his proposal to add an additional inclement weather makeup day on April 4, to make up the lost day of instruction due to inclement weather on March 22.
PGCPS plans to extend the school year to June 20, contingent on the governor signing the legislation into law, rather than open schools next week. All Maryland school districts are required to start school after Labor Day with June 15 as the last day of instruction due to an Executive Order by Gov. Larry Hogan. This week’s state bill does not change the post-Labor Day start for schools.
