For years, Sandy Stewart has been greeting people who call the Board of Education office with the same words-"It's a great day at North Baltimore Schools". Last Sunday, while celebrating the official dedication of our new building at 2012 Tiger Drive, many in attendance would have agreed with her always optimistic greeting. It truly IS a great day in North Baltimore and our schools are worthy of celebration! Here is a look at the festivities through the eyes (lenses) of several cameras.
