Farm to School Week 2013

“Bee keeper, Jeff Sili brought a real beehive to school to show the students the parts of the hive and how the bees make honey.   He also talked about the Queen bee, the Worker Bees, and the drones.  Some of the students got to hold a frame of honey.  Jeff asked the students to guess how many bees it takes to make one pound of home.  The answer is 5.000.  He told the students that bees help many of the things we like to eat, grow, like strawberries, blueberries, and apples. In addition, bees help pollinate many of the beautiful flowers we enjoy in the spring, summer, fall.”

American Education Week

November 18th-22nd, has been designated as American Education Week.  Recognition of this week affords all citizens of this great nation the opportunity to honor the wonderful people who make a difference in the lives of our children, our educators.   We celebrate our public education system and especially our teachers for making every effort to ensure that our children receive the best education possible.

The observance of American Education Week is a yearly one and it is now in its 90th year.  It is a week that we recognize the professionalism and dedication of teachers, support staff and administrators, who help students achieve and reach their potential educationally, which in turn, helps them to be successful in the future as adults.

The Caroline County School Board, the Central Office Administrative Staff, and Dr. Killough would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to our teachers, support staffs, and administrators throughout the Caroline County Public Schools division.  Their continued hard work, perseverance, and commitment to the education of our students is beyond outstanding, and they are greatly appreciated for all they do.
