Dear McCormick Families AMERICAN EDUCATION WEEK is this week November 12- Nov 16. Please see the expectations below if you plan on visiting. Also, this is a reminder that Grandparents Day is Friday Nov. 16. We hope you will be able to join us.

Parent Expectations -
 American Education Week is an excellent opportunity for parents/guardians to visit their children’s schools and show their support for their children and our schools. It is not a substitute for a parent-teacher conference. The following expectations help to assure a safe and orderly visit.
· Bring government-issued identification, such as a driver’s license. · Arrange for the care of small children so that they will not interrupt the educational program. The school environment might be too restrictive for them. · Park only in designating parking areas. Cars parked illegally are subject to being towed. · Push the buzzer to be admitted. Do not hold the door open for others. Safety over courtesy! · Sign in at the main office or designated location and go through the visitor identification process. · Wear your visitor badge at all times. It must be visible. · Go directly to your child’s classroom/location and remain with your child. · Do not bring food or snacks into the building to share with other children. · Put your cell phone away and make sure it is silenced. Videotaping other children is not allowed. · While in the school, do not attempt to verbally or physically discipline other children. · Address any immediate concerns you have with an administrator. Do not disrupt class to voice your concerns. · Upon completion of your visit with your child, sign out in the main office or designated location.

COMMUNITY

Our community is located in the northeastern section of Baltimore County and includes older, established neighborhoods, as well as relatively new neighborhoods. There are a broad range of housing opportunities, including apartments, townhouses and individual homes.

SCHOOL

McCormick Elementary School opened its doors in September, 1971 and we currently provide both regular and special educational services to approximately 475 students in Pre-School through grade 5.

STAFF

The professional staff is comprised of a principal, assistant principal and thirty-three teachers, including specialists in special education, reading, music, physical education, art, speech, guidance, psychology, and library science.  Three instructional assistants and two parent helpers provide additional instructional support for review, extension and remediation of skills for our students. A full-time, registered nurse and part-time occupational therapist, as well as a part-time physical therapist, are assigned to the school. 

SPECIAL PROGRAMS

McCormick Elementary provides full-day instruction for all kindergarten students. Our two Pre-Kindergarten classes meet five days a week for half-day sessions. Again this year, McCormick will use Title I funding to assist us as we provide a school-wide program that increases the quality and amount of learning time for all children to enable them to achieve challenging academic standards. Special funding from Baltimore County allows us to provide increased instructional materials, additional teaching support, after-school and summer school programs for our students. Our students with special needs receive their instruction within the regular classroom setting with assistance from members of our Child Advocate Support Team (CAST). 

RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES

The Rosedale Recreation Council offers a variety of programs for community members.  Please visit their website for more information.
