Congratulations, Leaders! 

During the month of September, the lower school focused on the importance of community and school spirit. We created a Calverton chain that hangs in our hallway with each student’s name as a symbol of how we are connected through our school community. Students had a special presentation from Calverton parent, Mr. Justin Ruest about their role in the larger community through their volunteer work with the Calvert County Rotary Club. Congratulations to the September leaders below that showed how they are positive members of our lower school community during the first month of school. Way to go!

We Love Our Buddies

Students in grades K-4 met their middle school buddies for the first time. Students played a get-to-know-you game and learned some things they had in common with their buddy. Our 5th grade students buddied up with our pre-kindergarten and had a great time playing and laughing together. This month, buddies will be working to build safe homes for their pumpkins, because we will be having a pumpkin drop from the top of the building. We can’t wait to see what engineering ideas our students come up with to keep their pumpkins safe from the fall.

Fall Festival

Join us for our CPA’s fall event on October 28 from 5:00-7:30pm. Children should come dressed in their costumes. Students can participate in a variety of Halloween-themed games prior to trunk-or-treating. You will not want to miss this event! Keep an eye out for more information from room parents. If you plan to have your child attend aftercare on October 28 and that is not their typical dismissal routine, please contact your child’s teacher and Kasey Cunningham, Director of Extended Day at [email protected] to make them aware and help us plan for an increase in students.

Halloween Parade 

Our Halloween Parade and Concert will take place on October 28 at 9:45 a.m. in the gym. Each grade will perform a song and there will be time for photo ops around campus. Lower school students will parade through the middle and upper school and finish off the morning with class parties prepared by our amazing room parents. Students should come to school dressed in their costumes and have their uniform/spirit wear ready to change into following the festivities. As your child begins to think about their costume options for the parade, please keep in mind the information below: 


- Please remember that there are very young children at Calverton, and costumes should not be "too scary"

- Costumes must offer appropriate coverage (nothing see-through and skirts should be no shorter than just above the knee)

- No weapons (or anything resembling a weapon) or liquid accessories will be allowed on campus

- No face paint or hair dye for this event

- Parents of Cougar Cubs, please keep in mind that your children will be walking up and down steps as they parade through our middle and upper schools. Long tails, dresses, and pants can be troublesome for our littlest friends
