More than 1,700 undergraduate and graduate courses are offered in six
different sessions. The six summer sessions include two six-week sessions
and four three-week sessions. The three-week sessions have been expanded in
2001 so that students can take courses they need and still have time to
pursue internships, summer employment or vacations.

The new Perrywood-Kettering Community Park-School Center will be dedicated
April 21. The ceremony will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The school is at
501 Watkins Park Dr. in Largo.
"We are inviting students, parents, elected officials and community members
to join us during this momentous occasion," school board member Robert J.
Callahan said. "Not only are we celebrating the opening of a new elementary
school, but new school construction and capital improvements countywide."
The completion of Perrywood-Kettering Community Park-School Center has
allowed more than 750 students, who were temporarily housed at the Belair
facility in Bowie for more than three years, to relocate to their original
neighborhood. Perrywood Elementary was designed as an addition to the
recently completed Kettering-Largo Community Center.
After the dedication by Superintendent Iris T. Metts, visitors will be
able to go on a self-guided tour of the new facility.
