Please plan to join us for the final PTA meeting this school year on Tuesday, May 15th at 7:00. All members are invited to attend and vote in the PTA election.
School Board Candidate Forum
Voting for our Board of Education representative is new to Baltimore County this year. Southwest area PTAs and PTSAs want to assure the public learns about the candidates--and then votes both in the primary and the general election.
Please join us on Thursday, May 17th at Catonsville High to meet the candidates running to represent our area.

This school year we have submitted nearly $680 worth of Box Tops for Education. Thank you to everyone for your submissions! We have a few more weeks to go, so please keep clipping.
Box Tops can be submitted in envelopes, zip top bags, or attached to collection sheets. Collection sheets are optional and do not need to be complete to be sent in to school. Send in your Box Tops by the end of May to have them count towards your classroom’s total for the school year. Don’t forget to label it with your homeroom teacher, too.
Allergy season is here. If your child suffers with seasonal allergies, please give them their daily allergy medication at home. Our school nurse cannot administer daily allergy medications, including eye drops, at school.
