05 Feb Weekly Newsletter – January 29, 2016
Inclement Weather CHANGE!
In the event of snow or inclement weather, we will generally follow the DCPS decision to close, delay or open but there may be some instances when the school will make a judgment call that differs from DCPS to protect our students. Please be sure to check Facebook, e-mails and phone messages for information. If you are not currently receiving robocalls please be sure that the front office has an updated phone number so that we can successfully reach you!
Family Science Days
Family Science Days is for DC-area youth and families and will be held on February 13 and 14 at the AAAS Annual Meeting. This event will take place at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The showcase features hands-on demos, shows, and other activities appropriate for k-12 youth and families. Contact Kim Joyce with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New After School Activities
We will have two new after school activities open for the spring: Technology Club and a female Entrepreneurship Program. Both activities will be run by The George Washington University.
Washington Global was awarded a grant through the Lowe’s Toolbox for Education program. The grant will allow the school to create school garden in the spring. Stay tuned for updates!
Black History Month
In honor of Black History Month the students will be completing projects honoring African Americans who have had an impact on our country. The final projects will be on display during Family Night where parents, students and staff will get to vote on the best projects. The winning students will get to go on a field trip to the Newseum to see their new Civil Rights exhibit.
