Poolesville Elementary School
MCPS Membership Websites for KIDS

The following online services are membership websites that the state, county, and local schools have paid for so that kids can access them for researching and reading both in school and at home.  PES Media Specialist Sharon Black sent home a packet with every student the first week of November 2013 that included a newsletter from the Media Center as well as a pink sheet that gave the membership websites as well as the login names and passwords needed to login to these sites from home. Unfortunately we cannot list the passwords here as doing so would violate agreements with the selected content providers.
