TEACHERS ARE HEROES PROGRAM: Do you know a teacher who has gone above and beyond his or her job description and instilled a lifelong love for learning?  ABC2 is proud to introduce Teachers are Heroes, a 10-month program highlighting one Maryland school teacher (K-12) each month who has gone above and beyond his or her job description and instilled a lifelong love for learning in Maryland students. The program runs August 2014 through June 2015. ABC2, in partnership with MECU - Baltimore's Credit Union, will award the monthly selected teachers a $250 check to use toward classroom supplies along with a plaque acknowledging their achievement. Winners will be highlighted on ABC2 News and abc2news.com throughout the school year.  NOTE: If you nominate a deserving teacher or even re-nominate a teacher who has made a positive impact in your community, you'll be qualified to win two tickets to dine & cruise aboard the Spirit of Baltimore.  One winner will be randomly chosen monthly thru June 30, 2015.  The online application is found at:  http://www.abc2news.com/teachersareheroes


FROM OUR YEARBOOK CHAIR:
June 8th - yearbooks delivered! I will get them to the students before school ends and in enough time to get them signed by friends and teachers….do not worry!  PLEASE remind your children to write their name in their yearbooks and do not leave them laying around, as I said before I won’t be able to replace or order more.
