The Montgomery County Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention training is required for all school volunteers and is available online at If you want to help out at recess or lunch, or volunteer in the classroom, etc. you must complete this training. It takes 30-45 minutes.

In light of recent events in our community and around the country, the MKPC PTA would like to reiterate that we are PROUD of the diversity in our community. We respect all members of our community and WILL NOT tolerate hate speech or bullying in any form.

The Montgomery County Public Schools and Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith have also posted messages online responding to hate speech incidents in our local area.

Membership Chair Needed

The PTA needs someone to serve as Membership Chair for 2017-18 - someone who enjoys meeting people and recruiting them to join MKPC PTA. This is a job that's busy at the beginning of the school year, but then your duties are mostly over - no sweat!

Pine Crest Field Closing for 2017-18.

At a May meeting, County Parks and Planning architects discussed with the MKPC community plans to use the wooded area adjacent to Pine Crest as a temporary recess field; smaller trees will likely be removed and the grounds made safe for the students. Meanwhile, the entire field at Pine Crest Park, where students currently enjoy recess, will be closed for renovations starting this summer. The field may be closed for a year before all park renovations are complete.
