Subject: SAVE THE DATE!! July 8, Community forum for advancing DCPS
There is an enormous passion for creating (and sustaining) the kind of
public schools in the nations capital that will nurture young men and women
who change the world. Many of us are not content to offer band-aid solutions
or wait for new elected leadership (much less wait for our voting rights in
the U.S. Congress). Its time to rise up!
Join us July 8 for a community action forum on key public schools issues.
Heres the scoop. Please pass the word.
