Parents,
Dare to Dream Scholarship forms go home today for grades PK3, PK4 and Kindergarten!

Dare to Dream is a scholarship program that is based on Career Planning. They are currently supporting the College and Career Readiness mandates. Dare to Dream implements many of the philosophies of the Sally Mae "Kids 2 College" Program. They support the plandining process for students as well as the financial strains of continued education. They are also promoting “Writing and Research” for those career goals and “Parental Support” that makes such a “Night and Day Difference” in the attitudes and the efforts of students.

Parents, please sign it, and return the bottom part of your form to your Teachers, tomorrow!

ALL Students returning the bottom of the form, Signed by a Parent, are eligible for a Fidget Spinner if classrooms with 100% Student Participation, Win Fidget Spinners for Every Student!!!

National School Walkout scheduled: 3/14/18

Dear Leckie Education Campus Parents and Families,

We are aware there is an event that calls for students to walk out of school on March 14 to participate in a national call for Congress to pass legislation on gun violence prevention. The walkout is scheduled to be 17 minutes long to commemorate the 17 Stoneman Douglas High School victims who lost their lives.

In the classroom, DC Public Schools (DCPS) empowers students to be inquisitive, informed, and engaged citizens who use critical thinking, inquiry, and literacy to prepare for college, careers, and civic life. Like many other big cities, DCPS encourages and supports students exercising their First Amendment rights, and DCPS is providing the following guidance for students and families who want to participate in this national youth-focused event, which is allowed under the DC Municipal Regulations (DCMR). Participating in a walkout is an individual family’s decision and we encourage you to discuss your child’s plans.

For Middle School Students
If your child plans to participate, please notify us using the normal attendance procedures. For high school and middle school students: If your child leaves class, it will be counted as an absence. To have this count as an excused absence for your child, please provide a note and ensure your student is back in class by 10:30 a.m. Otherwise, the absence will count as an unexcused absence. If you have any questions about our attendance procedure, please call the main office.

Elementary Students:
Elementary school students who wish to participate in the walkout need to be signed out and accompanied by a parent or guardian.

For all students who require assistance from a paraprofessional or nurse, parents or the paraprofessional/nurse must be willing to assist students who wish to participate in the walkout. If a parent or paraprofessional/nurse is not willing to accompany the student, the student must remain inside the school.

Conversations about current events will continue to play out both nationally and locally, and it is important that our youth know that school is a safe place to feel whatever they need to feel. Please encourage your child to speak to teachers and administrators about these topics because we are committed to our students being engaged in constructive ways.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me via phone at (202) 645-3330 or via email at niyeka.wilson@dc.gov. Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
Niyeka Wilson
Principal, Leckie Education Campus
