Washington County Public School News

Springfield Middle School is the recipient of a $500 ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Grant, through the effort of Mark Fulton, owner of the Williamsport Exxon Station, East Potomac Street, Williamsport. The program enables Exxon retailers to invest in the future of their community through educational grants to neighborhood schools.
The grant money will be used to purchase teacher and student materials, and to help defray costs for student field trips at Springfield Middle.
Conococheague Elementary School and Emma K. Doub Elementary School are featured in the National Network of Partnership Schools' (NNPS) fall newsletter, "type 2," in a feature article on the success of family math nights at elementary schools.
Conococheague's Family Math Night taught parents and students math games that reinforced what the students were learning in class. Each family received a copy of a game to use at home. Emma K. Doub's Math Game Night featured math games donated by a local business, which teachers adapted to match skills taught in class.
In April 2006, students in Betty Shriver's Food Service class at the Job Development Program at Marshall Street School baked 20 dozen cookies and shipped them to soldiers in Afghanistan. The students also wrote and sent letters of support.
The military contact person for the project was Major Blaine Clowser of the United States air Force.
In appreciation, the class received a plaque with a citation, Air Force patches, and American flag. The students learned the flag was flown over the compound at Bargram Air Field in Afghanistan in honor of Mrs. Shriver's class on May 29, 2006.
