We are having issues with our teachweb account at the moment. Parents can click the picture above for elecronic copies of the logs and reflections. As a reminder, the log and reflection is a quarterly assignment that will be updated to reflect each quarter.
The log expectations will remain the same but the reflection will have different questions for each quarter. The assignment is worth 10% of the student’s overall grade for each quarter (5% process for the log and 5% product for the reflection). The assignment and grading parameters are a countywide expectation in Physical Education.

Student Service-Learning Program
(Please click the gator below for additional information)
What is it?
Calvert County Public Schools (CCPS) promotes high-quality service learning experiences for all students. Student Service-Learning is an approach to teaching that combines meaningful service to the community through curriculum-based learning. Students improve academic skills by applying what has been learned in school to the real world, and then reflect on their experience which reinforces the link between community outreach and learning.
Student Service-Learning is a Maryland State Department of Education graduation requirement. Students must complete a total of 75 hours of service to the community prior to graduation.
As part of the Red Ribbon Week Activities, PPMS held a Button Design Contest with prizes going to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for the most creative, catchy design! Thank you to all who participated!
