One of the obstacles to providing high quality professional development tends to be finding time to implement such programs. It is an area that we will continue to look at improving and working with to enhance the achievement of our students.

Fifth-grade students from Crellin Elementary School in Maryland will receive the National Civic Star Award from the American Association of School Administrators this month. The honor goes to the students for their work in getting an industrial site cleaned up near their school. The site was polluting their playground and a nearby stream and when students noticed they decided to do something about it. They worked with their teachers, families, the Department of Natural Resources, and Bureau of Mines to clean up the site.
By working together, a problem was solved. As educators, we need to be aware of the many opportunities to work with students to address issues in our communities. We can help our students make the news, in a positive fashion.
