Archives- Best and Brightest- The May 2017 Meeting

Our Best and Brightest meeting  was held on May 18, 2017 and is always one of our highlights of the year. For this meeting, we solicit nominations from our Parents’ Council family for MCPS staff that have made this year great for our children. We want to take the time to show our appreciation to these staff members of their hard work, persistence and commitment to the students of MCPS. Best-and-Brightestgroup 2017
