The weather has been highly variable over the last month – with extreme lows, and also some higher than normal temperatures. Accordingly, we had to postpone the movie screening of
twice! So, it's important to know the inclement weather policy for PCW events: if the hosting school or Montgomery County Public Schools have a delayed start or a closure, our programs are rescheduled to the snow date. We will post any schedule change information on our website,
Get Ready for our 2019 Best Practices Forum
Our Best Practices Forum will take place on
April 9, 2019
(please note that the forum will be an evening program this year) at Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School in Washington, D.C. and is open to all parents, administrators, faculty, and staff from PCW member schools.
This year's topic is
Promoting Student Well-Being.
You can download a flyer
Next week, we will send a letter and questionnaire to Heads of Schools and Parent Association Presidents asking each member school to submit information on their own school-specific best practices on the topic. School submissions will be due by April 1, 2019. Information collected from each member school will be organized into an e-binder and posted on our website subsequent to the forum.
Best Practices e-binders from prior years remain a valuable resource and can be accessed
Please mark your calendar and encourage your school to contribute to the Best Practices e-binder!
Meet & Greet Coffee
There will be a coffee for PCW representatives and PA Presidents on Thursday, February 21, from 9-11am, upstairs at Praline Bakery (4611 Sangamore Road in Bethesda). Please join us for this informal event, even if you can only stop by briefly. It’s a chance to chat with PCW Board members and fellow reps, get all your PCW questions answered and share your thoughts on how PCW can better serve your school community! We’d love to see you! To confirm your attendance, please send an email to
Student Leader Breakfasts
FYI only (note that no action is required by PCW Reps) -- in February, we host two programs for students of PCW Member Schools: our Upper School Student Leader Breakfast was on Tuesday, February 5 at Bullis School, and the Middle School Student Leader Breakfast will be on Tuesday, February 12 at The Langley School. Administrators at member schools select two students to participate in each of these forums.
