New Bike rackS!!!

We are excited to share that we had two bike racks installed near the bus loop this week! A huge thank you to parent advocacy to help us secure these racks from MCPS. While the PTA helped to advocate for these bike racks, most of the credit goes to our principal, Mrs. Murphy. Her diligence in following up with MCPS is what made this happen for our Stallion bike riders. 


If a child rides a bike to school, they should wear a helmet and lock their bike to the rack during their school day. During arrival and dismissal, bikes should be walked around walkers.

Latest Episode of the Parent Podcast

Season 2, Episode 5: In this episode, Irene Johnson discusses the topic of bullying with Cavanaugh Bell from Gaithersburg.


A little bit about Cavanaugh:


"When I was 5, I got tired of people telling me that I was too young to volunteer. And after being bullied, I channeled that darkness I felt into a massive spark to change the world! Now I’m a kid leading a tribe of Positivity Creators who aren’t taking “no” for an answer."
