Martha's Table Scholars:
An Open Book
Our Martha's Table Scholars Enrichment Program supports elementary school students from Moten Elementary in Southeast D.C. Students participate in engaging after-school clubs that help them develop in several key areas including: literacy, social-emotional development, communication, team work, problem solving, and creative thinking. In partnership with An Open Book, author Julie Falatko and illustrator Ruth Chan visited our scholars at The Commons and shared copies of their new children's book, The Great Indoors . Everyone had a fun time reading and learning together!
