Share your best school-year memories
It’s (almost) over.
The school year that yet again saw Maryland’s public schools ranked No. 1 in the nation by Education Week is coming to a close. The year was marked also by controversy over the Race to the Top competition for federal funding, as well as cheating and bullying scandals in Baltimore City. But the events that will be remembered for years to come are the record-breaking snows in December and February, which led to the day after day off. The snowfalls extended the school year, which ends next week for many of our region’s districts.
As schools close for the summer, we want students, parents and teachers to share their thoughts about the past year. Kids, what was your best memory? Teachers and parents, not only can you encourage children to participate, but tell us your favorite memories as well.
Post them here on the blog, and we’ll publish the best ones in the newspaper after school ends. Please also share photos from your end-of-school experiences by e-mailing them to email@example.com or submitting them to our school memories photo gallery.
