Catoctin Elementary School


Does the school maintain an archive of old class photos? Looking for photos from my classes in 1976 and 1977.
I had a terrific time visiting your school yesterday. Nice kids and very pleasant staff. Thank you so much. Kevin O'Malley
Can anyone please take my spot in AIMS today at 1:45? I was the lead teacher, but now have a sick kiddo. Teaching science is super fun and you only have to teach the lesson for 15 minutes and then teach the same thing over again. Easy! Please help👍
Did I miss the boat on ordering next years school supplies? Didn’t see anything this spring.

Love this video! You all did an amazing job!
Does anyone have an extra yearbook they would be willing to let me buy? Or are there any left to purchase?
Do we need tickets for the variety show? Maybe I missed the flyer.
I have 23 New Scientist magazines from 2010, plus a small handful of others. Are there any classrooms that could use these for collages, projects, or comparing scientific progress over the last 8 years? Trying to clean out. I may find more!
