DC government goings on

  • DCPS Food Services Roundtable, August 3:   Three key DCPS food services staff will present at this event so you can learn more about this important aspect of DC Public Schools.   Community members are invited to ask any questions they may have about district-wide school meals and food services pilot programs.   The event takes place August 3 from 7:00 – 8:00 pm at the DCPS central office (1200 1st St NE).
  • Child and Family Services school supply drive:   CFSA is collecting school supplies for the more than 2,300 school-age children and teens served by the agency.   The drive takes place from August 16 - 20 and details are in this flier [PDF].
  • News from Early Stages:   1) Sign up for email updates from DCPS's Early Stages by going online; 2) Attend the August 17, 6:00 pm Special Education Parent Support Group at Shadd Elementary School (5601 East Capitol St. SE).   Stop by, talk with other parents, get some tips, share some ideas, get information; 3) Grandparents, plan on attending the August 19, 10:00 am Grandparents Program at Shadd Elementary School (5601 East Capitol St. SE).   Learn about handling responsibilities as primary caregiver for your grandchild.
  • Losing one of the good ones to grad school:   Inessa Lurye, who has worked in the Office of the City Administrator and the Department of Human Services, is leaving DC for Boston where she will begin a joint masters in public policy and business administration (MPP/MBA) at Harvard University.   In her farewell email, she wrote about the honor of serving DC residents and contributing to some successes and being inspired by those who, despite their circumstances, have risen to new and unexpected heights.   I had the pleasure of working with Inessa; she will certainly be missed.
  • Continuing Education in Your Community:   Here [PDF] is some basic information about the Community College of the District of Columbia.
  • Office of Cable Television receives six videographer awards:   The District's own cable television office—which is responsible for Channel 13 (City Council), Channel 16 (Executive branch and community), and DKN (DCPS)—received TVA awards and honorable mentions for six videos including DYRS New Beginnings and Life Skills.
