DC Council Education Committee Budget Hearing – Testimony by Gregory Melchoir-Fisher, CHM at Logan EC

Hello, I am Gregory Melchior-Fisher, a 6th grader from Capitol Hill Montessori, and I am here to show what our school could become if we get a science lab. We have almost 300 more currently enrolled today and over 1,000 children on our wait list. Our school needs more science equipment, but we will need to have more money. Many kids in our school want to be astronauts, or doctors, or teachers, or a scientist. They will not be able to reach their goals, unless you help them. Maria Montessori said, “Give a child a chance for success.”


We only ask for 25,000 to 30,000. Many schools in DCPS started small, just like us, such as Alice Deal or Stuart Hobson. We can only dream right now of having a middle school that large, but with a science lab, that dream could become a reality. I hope you put our testimonies into serious consideration.  Thank you for listening us today, and I hope we get that science lab.
