Good Maverick Families, 

This is Principal Anderson with a Friday update. 

Advanced Placement Testing

This year, there are different AP testing windows for students to take their end of course exams. Every student taking an AP course must complete the AP testing survey by April 9. The survey solicits information pertaining to which exam students will be taking and on which date since College Board has opened three different testing windows. The survey can be found on the Eastern Tech website and the Communication Hub. https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=3cPDSRs_g0GOdLONSDpa_f_vosfGbbhBs6rGHK8qThFURTZLME1URk9NRzFYWEM1SFVOR1BUWEs2SC4u


Good Morning America

We are excited to share that we will have one of our senior students interviewed on Good Morning America this upcoming Wednesday between 8:00 – 9:00 am. She will be sharing information about the impact of COVID on the college process so please tune in to Good Morning America on Wednesday, March 31st at 8:00 am.


Senior Activities

I have met with the senior class officers and advisors to review the recently released senior activity guidance to determine future events. I am thrilled to share that we will be moving forward with an on-campus senior event on the evening of May 15. Additionally, events throughout the months of April and May are being planned and details will be shared shortly through the senior officers.

Saturday School

It is not too late to register your student for extra help. We are offering an opportunity for all students to receive additional academic supports through our Saturday School plan called Maverick Saturday Sessions. Students will be able to complete current assignments and teacher approved missing work with the assistance of content specific teachers. Both hybrid and virtual cohort A students will be invited to participate. Please visit the website for the link to complete the registration form.


Transportation

The transportation routes and bus stops for all students returning in the hybrid program have been posted on the Eastern Tech website under the reopening information tab at the top of the website, https://easterntechhs.bcps.org/reopening_information/transportation.  If you have questions, please contact Mr. Powell via email at bpowell6@bcps.org.


Spring Break

We wish everyone a very relaxing and safe spring break. It is our hope that our students take time to refresh and renew in preparation for the end of third quarter on April 16.


Thank you and have a wonderful evening.
