Dear Ward 6 Public Schools Parent Organization members,
Please mark your calendars for two important meetings in February:
1. On Wednesday, February 9, at 7:30 pm, there will be a budget discussion with Chris Laskowski, Legislative Director for Councilmember Charles Allen. CM Allen is preparing a budget letter to the Mayor asking her to include specific priorities in her budget proposal, and Chris is seeking our input. This letter is an opportunity to highlight things we want all schools to have, and will also include major capital asks such as new playgrounds, long-standing building issues and modernizations that need to be added to the capital plan or moved up. This will also be an opportunity to make CM Allen aware of specific budget issues you want his office to work on after the budget is released. A Zoom link will be sent before the meeting.
For background, last year’s approved budget with the 5-year capital plan can be found here: https://cfo.dc.gov/page/annual-operating-budget-and-capital-plan
2. On Tuesday, February 15, at 8 pm, W6PSPO will host a Middle School Principal Panel Discussion (this will be in lieu of our monthly meeting). Principal Adutwum from Capitol Hill Montessori@ Logan, Principal Magrino from Eliot-Hine Middle School, Principal Dohmann from Jefferson Academy, and Principal Fraser from Stuart Hobson Middle School will participate in the panel discussion.
In the next few days, a flyer will be sent about the Middle School Principal Panel Discussion for you to share with your school communities.
