IMPORTANT SCHOOL BUDGET MEETINGS
A few weeks ago, we included information regarding the importance of supporting the 2016 - 2017 Budget Proposal for Montgomery County Schools. It is critical that we receive the full funding requested to ensure that we do not see further cuts to resources and increased class sizes. The County Council is holding several budget hearings in the coming weeks. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend and vocalize their support of the proposed budget. Each meeting will take place from 6:30 - 8 pm:

2/17 - Montgomery College (BE Building, Rm 151)
2/24 - Albert Einstein High School
3/9 - Gaithersburg High School
3/16 - Magruder High School
3/23 - Wootton High School

We will provide further information in the coming weeks about this important issue.

COACHES NEEDED FOR GOTR
Coaching for GOTR is very rewarding! As a coach you will prepare and educate young girls in grades 3 - 5 for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living, and inspire them to realize their limitless potential! Coaches do not need to be runners or have experience working with youth. Please contactRandi Mack if you are interested in being a coach.
