1.) AROUND MARYLAND» Kick off the new school year tomorrow with a Back to School Kickball Party in Colmar Manor. Details on Patch.
2.) YOU SAID IT » If school started after Labor Day, PGCPS students and their families would enjoy at least 15 more days of summer. Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot doesn’t think that’s such a bad thing. Read his comments and tell us what you think!
3.) WEATHER » The week will end with cloudier skies and cooler temperatures. The daytime high will reach the high-70s, and evening temperatures will be in the low-60s. There’s a slight chance of rain after 11 p.m. Humidity will be higher than yesterday but it won’t feel uncomfortably hot outside. Prepare for the weekend with the Accuweather forecast.
4.) PATCH TIP » The first day of school in Prince George’s County is Monday, and your child will probably be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance before they get their first lesson. So we asked: should students still say the Pledge of Allegiance?
