IN THE NEWS



~~~These links do not represent the opinions of Frederick County Public Schools or of any of the teachers, including Ms. Grassi.  These are any articles you may see in the paper, magazines, or education-based websites.  If you like researching like I do, you'll love some of these sites.  Some sites will give an in-depth insight into national and local education.~~~
Information on this page is divided into sections.  It is not updated weekly and is just for fun/ extra knowledge!
