Information Concerning Continuing Education at Pikesville Middle School 

Dear Pikesville Middle School families,

As you are aware, remote learning for all students will begin on April 6, 2020.  Based on our collaboration, below you will find the remote learning plan for Pikesville Middle School.

School Schedule:  Will be posted to the school website.

Office Hours:  Will be posted on the school website and vary by teacher. This is time when parents and students will have “digital” access to staff.  Teachers will be available via email and Schoology and able to provide further instruction via Google Meet, as necessary.

Class Meetings:This is defined as a “whole group class” meeting using Google Meet once per week per course.  This is an opportunity for students to meet with their teacher and the class to ask/answer questions, reteach/clarify challenges, check-in with students, etc. This is a synchronized class meeting that is approximately 30 minutes. These sessions may be recorded, and teachers will notify students at the beginning of the meeting, if they are going to record the meeting.  Students may turn their camera off if they do not want to be recorded, however, students will still be able to participate in the meeting. 

Materials:  Potential distribution of computers and access to paper copies of materials will be shared once a decision is made for the county.

Principal's Message

Dear Students & Parents,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  I am so honored to serve the Pikesville Middle School community as Principal.  While the summer months provide us with the opportunity to recharge, rejuvenate and spend time with our family and friends, much has taken place at Pikesville Middle School in preparation for the upcoming academic school year.  We welcome your partnership in education as we embark on an academic school year that promises to transform the educational experience.  As the principal, it is my mission to promote a safe, equitable and learner-centered environment that will inspire and propel our school family to places of continual growth and excellence. We have purposefully evolved the culture in our school to be a school where children feel safe and are eager to learn.  The most powerful method for our school to move to new heights is through the home-school partnership.

The vision of Pikesville Middle School is for students to develop excellence in academics, character, and habits of mind by participating in student-centered learning experiences that promote 21st century skills. To be successful, students will need to think creatively, critically, and intuitively, solve real world problems, communicate effectively (verbal & written forms), work in teams, use technology to accelerate learning outcomes, and develop healthy, ethical life-style habits.  Therefore, the following Python Pride motto is one that students must observe daily.  The Python Pride motto states that students are Prepared, Respectful, Inclusive, Diverse, and Engaged!  I encourage you to remind your child daily that embracing the Python Pride motto will ensure they are a successful student at Pikesville Middle School.


The connection between home and school is critical.  When staff and parents collaborate and effectively work together, student educational practices are heightened.  Each student’s academic success and their respective personal responsibility at Pikesville Middle School are heavily dependent on a cooperative triangle encompassed with student-teacher-parent/guardian.  Through a close and shared partnership with all stakeholders invested with Pikesville Middle School, I am confident our school will continue to be a successful place for our students to learn and grow.  I invite you to call or e-mail to share your ideas relating to how we can rally to ensure Pikesville Middle School is the best of all places to attend middle school. Please follow us on Twitter @PikesvilleM.

I look forward to a productive and memorable school year for everyone!

 Yours in Educational Excellence,

 Kalisha T. Miller, Principal
