W6PSPO Meets Tuesday, February 25 @ Tyler Elementary

Dear Ward 6 Public Schools Parent Organization members,

W6PSPO will meet on Tuesday, February 25, from 6:30 – 8 pm at Tyler Elementary (1001 G Street, SE). Deputy Chancellor Amy Maisterra will join us for a DCPS budget discussion. We will also be joined by a representative from the Mayor’s Office of African Affairs who will share the city’s efforts to ensure everyone is counted in the 2020 census.

On March 17, the W6PSPO is hosting a discussion with the Ward 6 middle school principals. The panel will feature principals from Capitol Hill Montessori, Cardozo Education Campus, Eliot-Hine Middle School, Jefferson Academy Middle School, and Stuart Hobson Middle School. Child care will be available for children ages 3 and above. We are encouraging people who plan to attend to register for this event. Please share information about this discussion with your school communities.

Many of you saw the Washington Post article about this year’s DCPS budget, and the classification of library media specialists as non-essential. W6PSPO has had a long tradition of supporting school libraries and librarians. A petition is circulating in support of DCPS librarians. So far 630 people have signed this petition. We’d like to help get several thousand signatures. Please share this petition with your school communities.

Hope to see you on Tuesday.

Suzanne Wells
