I'm pleased to share that the collaborative effort to raise funds for Ward 1 schools is progressing! We've had three meetings
now with parent and principal representatives from Ward 1 elementary schools. We are formalizing plans for our structure and priorities. If you haven't gotten involved yet and would like to, please attend our next meeting at El Tamarindo (1785 Florida Ave NW) at 7:30 this Wednesday, April 27 at 7:30 pm.
I'm also embarking on a new effort to diversify and balance the parent voices that influence our education policy and discussions across the city. If this topic interests you, please reach out! I would welcome your thoughts and partnership as I build a plan and implement ideas. See below for additional updates on the State Board's work.
PS - Did you catch them? All seven amazing Ward 1 DCPS elementary school principals took time from their busy days to share their vision and hopes for their schools as part of the Meet the Principal video series. Be inspired, and watch them all!
Did you catch them? All seven amazing Ward 1 DCPS elementary school principals took time from their busy days to share their vision and hopes for their schools as part of the Meet the Principal video series. This effort is part of my commitment to keep everyone informed about our schools and to invite your involvement. Our principals want the wider community to know more about them and their schools. They want our collective support.
I welcome your feedback on the videos and other information you would like to know about our schools. To further my communication with you, please like my Facebook page!
Launching Meet the Principal!
I’m excited to launch Meet the Principal, a set of videos to introduce our incredible elementary school principals to the community. Each week, I’ll be sharing a new video as a part of this series. I hope you will be inspired to support our Ward 1 elementary schools after hearing about their vision for their schools and love for their students. Please share these videos with others interested in learning more about our Ward 1 schools!
