BALTIMORE COUNTY, MD—This Valentine’s Day weekend, Baltimore County Public Schools will send virtual “love-grams” to students through the new Student Appreciation Days social media campaign.
From February 11 – 16, BCPS administrators and educators will be encouraged to post messages of support and admiration to students in general or groups of students (not individual students), using the #BCPScares hashtag.
Likewise, students are invited to give themselves and their friends positive shout-outs using special Instagram Story templates that will be available on @teambcps Instagram Stories.
“This has been a tough year for all of us,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams, “and we recognize that and continually offer additional supports to our students, staff, and families. But through it all, our students continue to impress us with their patience, resilience, flexibility, dedication, and good humor. We want to thank them, honor them, and celebrate them – especially as we are about to embark on our next steps back toward in-person learning.”
