Second Grade practiced subitizing with a friendly game of Dice Races
Thank you to everyone who participated in the blood drive today at Potomac Grade School! We ended the day with 31 total donors! Potomac is so lucky to have amazing people who will give blood to save a life and help our school receive a grant!! Also, a huge thanks to Iota Theta sorority for sponsoring the blood drive!
Yearbooks are now on sale!! They are $10.50 each!! Orders must be submitted by March 5th!
The Wi-Fi is not working at Gifford Grade School. I will try my best to go live tonight, because I will be at the basketball game. If it works, it will be on the Potomac Grade School Facebook page. -Ms. Freeman
If you are donating blood on Monday, February 22, please take a look at the map to see where you should park and where the Blood Mobile will be parked.
