Spotlight of the Month

Congratulations to eighth grader Milan G. (pictured right), who was crowned the winner of the annual Jean Waller Brune Middle School Spelling Bee in early February after correctly spelling the championship word, “counterfeit.” Sixth grader Amelia B. (pictured left) was named the runner-up and both students will continue their spelling bee journey at the Maryland Sports Bee on Saturday, March 26. We congratulate all of those who participated today and wish Milan and Amelia the best of luck in their next spelling bee competition! You can see all of the finalists in action here.

Supporting Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) or Small Family-Owned Businesses

The DEI Office at RPCS supports Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and small family-owned businesses. These businesses are owned by folx who might identify differently. Our initial focus will be in the Baltimore area, with possible expansion in Maryland and beyond! We will share our business of choice for the month, and if you choose to support them too, it would be much appreciated! 
 
If you are aware of BIPOC or small family-owned businesses we should consider supporting, please send us an email. Thank you!
 
It takes a village – will you join us?
