Welcome Back Students!


    Dear Parents and Students,

    Welcome back to a challenging but achievable School Year during a pandemic!   This will be a new experience for all of us and an unprecedented historical moment in our lives to reflect on for years to come.  However, I know that we are resilient and can acclimate to these changes as we all transition to this new experience.

     The Learning Platform we will use this year is Microsoft Teams.  To access Microsoft Teams, you will go to Office 365 and select "Teams."  You should see my classes for English-I and Pre-IB English-I.  Your names are already pre-loaded in the class, so we shall learn this platform together.  Click here for Student Parent Guide for Microsoft Teams.  MCPS 0n-line information.

    I am looking forward to seeing you beginning August 24th, whether in person or on-line.  There are so many unknowns this year, so it will take all of us showing compassion and understanding for each other to make this a productive year.  I know we can succeed together!

    Go Knights!


    Mr. Baumann
