Message from the Principal
My name is Leslie Brooks. I have worked in the Baltimore County Public School system for many years as a teacher of students with special needs.
I have served as the Instructional Leader and Principal at Seventh District Elementary School since 2005. I look forward to continuing to build a positive, collaborative relationship with staff members, parents, community stakeholders, and most importantly, our students.
As a school system, we are dedicated to providing a quality educational program for all students. The mission of Seventh District Elementary School is to provide all students with an engaging, authentic, and rigorous learning environment in which students will reach their maximum potential as responsible life-long learners and productive citizens. We envision a school in which the staff, parents, and community function as a professional learning community to monitor each student’s progress through data analysis, implement research based instructional strategies to improve student achievement, and develop critical and creative thinkers through rigorous instruction and higher level questioning.
Improved student achievement can only be realized by parents and communities working as partners in the educational process with effective, knowledgeable, and dedicated administrators, teachers, and staff. This website is part of this continuing effort to build that strong home-school connection. Please feel free to contact me at any time by phone (410-887-1902) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The highly qualified staff at SDE strives to provide a responsive instructional program focused on every student to develop innovative, critical thinking and problem solving skills in preparation for the 21st century. To achieve these goals and promote the well-being of all students, we will create and maintain open communication between all stakeholders.
Seventh District will be amongst the highest performing schools, where ALL learners are intrinsically motivated and flourish in a technology-rich environment. We envision a culture of learning and respect where educators facilitate authentic, student-centered instruction that embraces the diversity of all students.
HISTORY OF SEVENTH DISTRICT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Seventh District Elementary School is located in beautiful Parkton, Maryland. We offer full day kindergarten and go through 5th grade.
The history and heritage of Seventh District Elementary make it one of the most unique schools in Baltimore County. In September, 1932, eight small schools, dating back to the 1800s, were consolidated into the original Butler Stone facility that became known as Seventh District Elementary. This facility served the community well until the unfortunate fire on August 30, 1970. Soon after the structure was destroyed, it was decided to reconstruct a new open space school on the same site. Faculty, parents, school board members, and architects worked collaboratively to design a structure that included the two wings that remained after the fire, and the school was reopened in November, 1972. On August 22, 1997, Seventh District Elementary representatives cut the ribbon on a new eight classroom modular addition.
Seventh District Elementary, the northernmost school in Baltimore County, is located in a predominantly rural area. The school district is approximately 80 square miles in size and is sparsely populated in comparison with other county school districts. The community is partially composed of families who have lived in the area for many years as well as new families to the area.
