We encourage our Dragons to Get on the Bus next Monday, February 15th (MCPS holiday), for the MCCPTA's Day of Action for Public Education in Annapolis, MD. That's right! You can sign up here to ride a bus from one of our local high schools to travel to Annapolis with parents, kids and others in our Beall community to talk to our legislators about public education. (Donations to the "bus fund" are not required but are appreciated to help defray the cost of the buses.)
See below for sign up information and ways that the MCCPTA's VP of Advocacy, Lynne Harris, has suggested participants can maximize their trip and get involved:
Here is the Eventbrite link to sign up to ride the bus, and make a donation to the "bus fund" if you can:
Here's the link to the MCCPTA Advocacy blog -- there you'll find issue specific blogposts with information on pending legislation, so you can do your homework on the issues you care about and call and make those appointments to speak with legislators:
