Stars of the Sea
 Making A Difference
A small boy was running up
and down the beach, feverishly hurling starfish
back into the water before they died. An old man approached him, "Do you
honestly think your work will make a difference?" he asked him skeptically. The
boy looked at him with sparkling eyes, held up
a starfish and said, "It makes a difference to
this one!" and threw the starfish back into the sea.
At MCPS, we believe that by putting forth effort, you will make a difference. 
We want all students to work hard because:
It is important,
they can do it,
we will not give up on them!
