      Spotlight on Our Schools

      • Allegany County is home to fourteen public elementary schools, four public middle schools, three public high schools, one technical school, and one alternative placement program. All twenty-two schools are staffed by highly qualified teachers. Every day, these schools and staff do amazing things for our students.

        Each year we would like to take the opportunity to highlight some of these accomplishments, programs, and more. Several schools will be "featured" on a weekly basis, and then their highlights will move into a folder under the Accolades section of our website for the public to view all year long. 

        We encourage you to take a moment to enjoy our weekly ACPS highlights and visit the archives to view an individual school spotlight to see what great things are happening in Allegany County Public Schools!



      Weekly ACPS Highlights

      • Parkside Elementary School

        • Grandparents' Day 2022

            • Parkside Elementary School welcomed grandparents to school to celebrate Grandparents' Day, which was nationally recognized on September 11, 2022. Parkside took the opportunity to recognize and celebrate the importance of grandparents and their involvement in their students' lives. While at the event this year, grandparents had the chance to play bingo and make a picture holder craft with students, enjoy snacks outside at the pavilion, and have a fall photo taken with their grandchildren. Parkside provides all of the necessary supplies and will provide the photo for families to display on the picture holder craft. Additionally, the school's PTA held a fall basket raffle.
