With that courage, we can stand together for the right of every child, from the corners of Anacostia to the hills of Appalachia, to get an education that stirs the mind and captures the spirit and prepares them for the world that awaits them.
President Obama, August 28, 2013
Another school year has begun! On this historic day for our nation, as we celebrate the anniversary of the March on Washington, I have great hope in what the future holds for our girls. As I rang bells at 3:00 p.m. today with the students, I saw many young women of courage and compassion who will grow up to be leaders in their communities. We are giving our students the type of education President Obama described today in his commemorative address.
Over the past few days, students have been returning to campus: first the 6th graders had an orientation day at THEARC on Monday, then the 7th and 8th grade students joined them for classes on Tuesday, and finally, all five grades attended school today. The 4th and 5th graders saw their new campus for the first time - for more on the move, read on below!
With our new campus opening, I hope you will consider supporting our "Open the Doors" campaign. Your support directly helps our students prepare for the world that awaits them. You can find out more by visiting our website: LINK
