Congratulations to our very own wonderful & amazing Rosemary Barry who was named the 2017 FCPS Outstanding School-based Employer!

As a PTA parent tells it: “There is no school policy or initiative about which Rosemary isn’t knowledgeable, no job title she doesn’t understand, no employee she doesn’t personally know. There isn’t even a copier she can’t fix.” In nearly two decades at Frost, Rosemary has become vital to the school, colleagues say, the consummate professional known for her intelligence, humility, and commitment to always put students first. “There are days when Frost is completely reliant on Ms. Barry to keep everything moving along smoothly,” said an assistant principal. “We call those days, weekdays.”

Congratulations also to the other Frost Middle School staff members recognized at FCPS Honors.
