Greetings from the Yearbook Committee!    This year our 5th grade yearbook staff is working on a page entitled "Maryland Pride" and will include pictures of kids wearing any clothes that shows their Maryland pride. This can include ANYTHING related to our great state from Ravens jerseys, Orioles jerseys, Terps or any of the colleges from our state, the Naval academy, Ocean City gear, crabs, Maryland flag wear or LAX gear. In order for us to take as many good pictures as we can, the schedule below describes when different classes can come to the cafeteria during homeroom to have their pictures taken by our 5th grade photographers as well as a few parent volunteers. Due to space, pictures that are not included on the Maryland Pride page may also be included in grade collages.
