City of Rockville Programs for Twinbrook Students

Hello Twinbrook families.  As summer winds down, thoughts turn to resuming school-year routines and fall activities.  The City of Rockville has some great programs targeted to our students.  Here are two.

1. Twinbrook Early Birds and Afterschool Programs
The Recreation and Parks Department offers an affordable, high-quality after school program for Twinbrook students. The Twinbrook After School Club meets at the school and has a well-trained staff that plans a fun and active program including snack, homework help and more to round out the day.  Financial assistance and payment plans are available.  Before-school care (i.e., the Early Bird program) is offered at Twinbrook Community Center with transportation to school provided.

Únete a nosotros después de la escuela para actividades que se enfóquen en la recreación, deporte y diversión. Los niños recibirán ayuda con la tarea y se serviran aperitivos todos los días. El club se reúne todos los días que MCPS está en sesión (tambien se incluyen días de salida temprana). Ayuda financiera estara disponible para los residentes de la ciudad que califican.

2. Youth Sports Leagues Fall 2016

The City of Rockville Recreation and Parks Department is accepting registrations for Co-ed Youth Soccer and Cross Country.  Register by August 25th and save $10. Registration deadline is September 1st for all Fall Youth Sports.

Summer Mailing

The school’s summer mailing should go out this week.  The English version of the content has been posted on the school website.   MCPS está traduciendo la versión en español que será incluido en el paquete.

Open House is Thursday, August 25th, 2-3 PM, 1:30 PM for Kindergarten students.

Twinbrook PTA News August 1

Meet the Board!

Meet our new board of directors for 2016-2017!

  • Vincent Russo, President
  • Jennifer Wood, VP Fundraising
  • Susan Adams, VP Membership
  • Trinh Minh, Treasurer
  • Sonia Reyes, Secretary
  • Amy Ackerberg-Hastings, MCCPTA representative

We are still hoping for another delegate. We are also in search of Spanish-speaking volunteers to help form a Latino Outreach Committee—it’s important that our PTA speak for all families at Twinbrook. Please contact Vincent Russo if you are interested.

National Night Out, August 2, 6-9pm, Twinbrook Pool

Of interest to our community: the Twinbrook Swimming Pool is partnering with Twinbrook Neighborhood Watch and Twinbrook Citizen’s Association to host National Night Out on Tuesday, August 2. The neighborhood is welcome to gather at the pool, bring a picnic, and then take a walk. 6 – 9 pm. Invite your neighbors! Swimming available for non-members for $6/person. The pool is at 13027 Atlantic Ave, Rockville.

National Night Out, sponsored by the Rockville Police Department, aims to raise awareness about crime and drug prevention, generate support for anti-crime programs and strengthen community spirit and community policing partnerships through block parties and fun events around Rockville. We hope to see you there!

Save the Date: Back to School Pool Party, Twinbrook Swimming Pool, August 28

The Twinbrook PTA invites all to a pool party to celebrate the end of the summer and the beginning of the school year! Everyone who signs up to join the PTA gets to swim for free, along with their families! The party will be from 12-4pm. Please stop by!

Help Wanted: Folder Prep and Teacher Breakfast

The PTA will help get the school off to a good start the week of August 22. We need your help!

  • The PTA will host a breakfast on August 25 for the Twinbrook staff. Can you help with food or set up?
  • Every year the Twinbrook PTA purchases homework folders for every student, and we need help getting them ready and stuffing them with back-to-school information. We will be scheduling an evening to get the folders ready (tentatively planned for Aug. 23). SSL hours available for high school and middle school students!

If you can help with either task, please send us an email right away!

Save the Date: Scholastic Book Fair 9/30-10/7

Save the date! Our Book Fair is scheduled for 9/30-10/7. This event raises funds and helps get Twinbrook kids excited about books and reading. But this event is entirely run by volunteers and we can’t do it without you. People are needed to help set up and break down the Book Fair, work shifts during the school days and a few evenings, and help with the planning. If you are interested please contact Stephanie Diaz or Susan Adams.

2016-2017 Board Members and Vacancies

Thanks to everyone who came out last night to vote for our new board, and hear some great info about the City of Rockville and their summer programs! Here’s the new board:

President: Vincent Russo

VP Membership: Susan Adams

VP Fundraising: Jennifer Wood

Treasurer: vacant

Secretary: vacant

Yes, we still have vacancies. Our bylaws require a secretary and a treasurer. On the fence about whether you should join the board? Here are some things to think about:

  • You’ll receive free training.
  • You’ll receive support from experienced volunteers who have been in your shoes. It’s a great year to get your feet wet because for many of our long-time volunteers with kids in 4th or 5th grade, their time at Twinbrook is nearly at an end.
  • If we don’t fill these positions, we won’t have a PTA in good standing. This means trouble for PTA-run special events, fundraisers, and the Book Fair.

If you are interested in these positions or have questions, please contact the current board right away. Thanks.
