Middletown Middle is the First Middle School to be Named the Winner of the FCPS Superintendent’s Cup

Superintendent's Cup

Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) is pleased to announce that the Middletown Middle School Student Government has been named the recipient of the 2024 Frederick County Public Schools Superintendent’s Cup, making Middletown the first middle school to win the award.

Each year, the Frederick County Association of Student Councils (FCASC) Executive Board selects a charitable organization to support, with the focus of giving back to our Frederick County community. This year, Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a nonprofit organization that builds, assembles, and delivers bunk beds to children and families in need, was selected. Districtwide, the FCASC raised $15,369 for Sleep in Heavenly Peace. FCASC teams organized 64 student council members to participate in Bed Build events and provided 20 beds for students in our community in need.

The Superintendent’s Cup was created in 2017 to recognize a student government team that had the most significant impact to the charitable initiative selected for that year.

This year’s winner, Middletown Middle School, raised an impressive $11,515 for Sleep in Heavenly Peace by organizing fundraiser events and through the matching donation of Installers DMV. Additionally, students and their families worked with the nonprofit to build and assemble beds, and students made and donated 20 blankets. The Middletown team was also able to give back to their peers by using the fundraising activities to highlight the connection between stress and getting enough sleep. The efforts of students like those of Middletown Middle School help make Frederick County a great place to live and learn.
