Hello and welcome to the latest NW@K. Here’s what you need to know for the week ahead …
Science Fair Friday, March 15
It’s Science Fair Week at Key! Join us for the science fair Friday, March 15, to see all the amazing projects the students have been working so hard on. Parents are welcome to visit the gym to walk around with their children immediately after school. Announcements and awards will begin around 3:45 pm.
Science Fair Project Drop Off
For third to fifth graders: All boards are due on Tuesday, March 12. Props can come in on Thursday, as there is very little room for storage. Props should be labeled with student name and grade. All boards must be present for set up on Thursday in order to be in the science fair! Questions or concerns for grades 3-5, please contact Ms. Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For PreK to Second Graders: Please begin bringing in projects to the classroom on Monday, March 11, with any materials that go with it. This way students can share their projects during science class. All projects must be at school no later than Thursday, March 14, for project set up in the cafeteria/gym on Thursday late afternoon. NO day-of submissions will be accepted due to space restrictions. Any questions, please contact Mr. Wetherald at email@example.com.
Science Fair Volunteers Needed
Volunteer for the science fair! Join us Thursday, March 14, at 4:15 pm, to help with set up. Or help greet judges on Friday, March 15, at 8 am. We’ll also need assistance with break down after the winners are announced on Friday, around 3:45 pm. Sign up is here, or email Sarah Babcock firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to help.
We look forward to a great science fair this year!
Keep Old Hardy Public Update
The PTO supports DCPS reclaiming the Old Hardy Building at Q St and Foxhall Rd when the current tenant’s lease expires in 2023. We believe the building is the best solution to address overcrowding in our elementary schools. To learn more, please visit the newly launched website by the grassroots movement Keep Old Hardy Public, www.kohp.org. The Mayor introduced emergency legislation to allow the current tenant to renew the lease for 15 years, which would prevent DCPS from using the building to address overcrowding. The PTO opposes this legislation as does our Ward 3 Councilmember Mary Cheh. If you are interested in letting DC Council members know how you feel about this emergency, please consider sending emails to the four at-large members:
Monday — Southwest Black Bean Nachos or Turkey Burger
