In March, our Drama students hosted the Spring Drama Production, The Somewhat True Tales of Robin Hood. The production included two weekend performances to a packed Black Box Theater and two weekday shows to Heathrow fifth grade students who came over for a special viewing. The show was led by our talented Drama III students and their dedicated Director, Drama teacher, Ms. Jennifer Bennett. 



At Markham we are fortunate to have an amazing faculty—dedicated, hardworking, and committed to the success of each student. Last night, four of Markham’s teachers were recognized in the board room for their positive impacts on student achievement.

It was indeed an honor to see Markham represented by such distinguished teacher-leaders.

eCampus

SCPS provides the opportunity for you to observe your student within the district's Learning Management System known as eCampus. Remember, Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.

To observe a student, you must know the student's eCampus username and password. The student must be enrolled in the course and must accept the course invitation before you can sign up to observe the student. If you receive an invalid username or password message during the signup process and the student's credentials are correct, check with the student to verify that he or she has received and accepted the course invitation. These steps must be completed through the web version of Canvas. The observer signup process cannot be done through the mobile app. Follow the instructions on this guide to sign-up for an observer account.
