St. Mary's County Public Schools opened for students on August 30th. Cove team and youth celebrated with a "Cove Family meal" of spaghetti and meatballs. The youth clubhouse members were so excited, and Cove staff was, too, to share experiences of their first day. Cove returned to our "First 45" tradition of taking 45 minutes out from clubhouse fun to have study time each school night. When time to go home, the youth took all the leftovers to share with their families. Here is to a safe, productive and wonderful academic year, everyone!
