Holiday Message From MCPS Superintendent, Dr. Monifa McKnight

As we enter a much-deserved Winter Break, I want to wish all of you, our amazing students, superb staff and wonderful families — a joyous holiday season. With the first semester winding down, please accept my heartfelt gratitude for all that each and every one of you do  for our students and for one another.

Reflecting on this first half of the school year, I am so proud of what we have accomplished as a community, with our “All Together Now” spirit. We are staying true to our mission, so that all of our students can thrive academically, socially and emotionally. I remain hopeful that we can and will continue the work we have embarked on this school year, build on the momentum we cultivated, and address the challenges before us.

This holiday season, I look forward to spending time with friends and family, and reflecting on the privilege I have to wake up each and every day to serve you all. I get to work alongside talented teams of people who are committed to student success, employee development, and helping our community thrive. I hope the experiences you’re having with our schools will also give you much to discuss as you gather with friends and family this holiday season.

Please, take time to relax and rejuvenate so we can all come back energized for the year ahead.  You deserve it. Until then, I wish you ALL a wonderful, safe, and cheerful break.
