Dr. Mudd Elementary School Officially Rededicated After Recent Renovation and Expansion

October 13, 2019

School system, county and state officials joined together on October 10, 2019, at the Dr. Samuel A. Mudd Elementary School to officially rededicate the school, which recently underwent a complete renovation and expansion.

Dr. Mudd first opened in 1967 with about 45,000 square feet of space, a combined cafeteria and activity area, indoor courtyards and a central library location. In 2017, a major renovation began at the school that included the creation of a separate gymnasium and cafeteria, new main entrance and an additional nearly 36,000 square feet of learning space for students. Classrooms and additional learning spaces were modernized for students. Dr. Mudd also received essential mechanical and structural upgrades to replace aging equipment.

Cost of the renovation and expansion was nearly $24 million. During the two-year process, students were bused to the Charles County Transition School, a temporary location featuring classrooms, a gymnasium, main office and cafeteria. The Transition School currently houses Eva Turner Elementary School students and staff. Turner is undergoing a similar renovation and expansion.

The rededication ceremony will air live on the Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) website, ccboe.com. Tours of the school following the end of the ceremony are available.

    “Samuel Alexander Mudd was an American physician who was imprisoned for conspiring with John Wilkes Booth in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Working as a doctor and tobacco farmer in Southern Maryland, Mudd was a Democrat and declared his belief in slavery as a God-given institution.”

    Oh, I get it. He was a Democrat, so some facts are swept under the carpet. Yet Robert E. Lee was a horror tale, because he turned down Abe, when asked to lead U.S. troops against his own state and its citizens.

    Should have renamed school while they had a chance. Pretty shady they keep the name of a school with the controversial background.

    Democrats remain unchanged.

    They can be dirty, criminals, and even support assassins – No problem! Everyone LOVES them.

    They refused to give up their slaves until absolutely forced – and still the slaves of today belong to them and are owned by the democratic party.

    They are too stupid to know that Mr. Lincoln was a strict republican.

    It is republicans that believed that all men were created equal.
