Our March 7th event was packed with employment and college preparation activities! We were delighted to welcome our friends from Washingtonians for Children, a division of FEDCAP, to our March 7th event at the CFSA building. Also attending was our partner from Sara Start Fund, which serves older foster youth while they are in college. [...]
Good morning, everyone!
I can't imagine a better way to begin the beautiful month of June than to be with our wonderful Academy students! Thanks to Director Brenda Donald, Mr. Damian Miller and Mr. Antonio Dunklee who hosted us at the Child and Family Services Agency building, we were offered an AMAZING seminar of preparing Nutritious Meals on a Tight Budget. The fantastic Meriwether Godsey culinary and nutrition education team, Robin Menard (director of dining at Sidwell Friends School), Gerardo Marzariegos (dining service manager at Seed School of DC), Sarah Barge (registered dietician) and Rebecca Cunningham, Executive Chef, Sidwell Friends School) gave us a presentation that should have been filmed for the Food Network! We discussed the elements of “My Food Plate” and how to combine fruits, vegetables, proteins, grains and daily products for balanced and healthy nourishment.
We love the George Washington University- our university! Mount Vernon campus ROCKS!
Saturday was another perfect day for us as we all gathered at West Hall to take our Reading Plus pre-assessments on-line. Ms. Heidi Munkacsy and Dr. Colette Coleman graciously gave us everything we needed, including the huge room and internet access so that we could efficiently prepare for our summer curriculum. Thank you so much
We had one of the most beautiful experiences I think we have ever had with the FSGW Academy on April 19, 2014, as we were graced with the magnificent performance of the Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company at the National Portrait Gallery.
We had a fabulous day at the Pitch in on the Piedmont EDGE community service event on Saturday, April 26th, 2014. We are so grateful to our terrific partners at the EDGE Mason Center for Team and Organization Learning program and George Mason University
We are most grateful to our hosts at the Microsoft store at Pentagon City for our technology training day.
We are very excited about this new partnership with Microsoft, thanks to Ms. LaSone Barber, and this was a great start. We began our morning reviewing our laptops and preparing for our computer clean-up courtesy of the Microsoft technicians.
Our event at the Arts Club of Washington was one of our best ever. Once again, our hosts offered us a most wonderful experience- this time with classical music! We were treated to the lovely music of the Excelsa String Quartet:
- Laura Colgate, violin
- Jonathan Richards, violin
- Valentina Shohdy, viola
- Kacy Clopton, cello
Good morning to all,
Happy Snowy Day!
