In October of 2016, MSD and Dongcheng District Special Education School signed a memorandum of understanding, formalizing a sister school relationship between both schools. This past month during spring break, our International Orioles Club traveled to China for 10 days. They spent two days of the trip visiting our sister school for the first time. Visit our Facebook page to learn more about the visit with our sister school. Additional pictures are posted.
MSD’s Work-to-Learn Program hosted its annual Employer Recognition Reception to showcase our high school students at their various job sites through our business partners. Work-to-Learn provides high school students the opportunity to explore career paths and learn workplace skills necessary to compete in today’s job market. With the support of our business partners, our students are able to apply their skills in a real-world work environment. Visit our Facebook page for more pictures.
Student life activities give students the opportunity to learn valuable, real-world skills. Recently, our high school residential students learned how to detail a car and how to do an oil change.
Thanks to the @frederickkeys and to everyone who came out for a great time at Deaf and Hard of Hearing Night! Dr. David Denton, former MSD Superintendent from 1967-1992, threw the first pitch. MSD’s high school cheer squad signed the national anthem. In between innings, the giant stadium video screen displayed clips of our cheerleaders teaching Keys’ players baseball signs. We look forward to next year!
