Juneteenth (a blending of the words June and nineteenth) is the oldest known celebration of the end of slavery in the United States.

It is also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day and Cel-Liberation Day.

It commemorates June 19, 1865, the day that Union Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger rode into Galveston, Texas, and told slaves of their emancipation from slavery. Texas was the last state in rebellion, following the end of the Civil War, to allow enslavement. Although the rumors of freedom were widespread prior to this, actual emancipation was not announced in the last state practicing enslavement until General Gordon Granger came to Galveston, Texas and issued General Order #3, on the "19th of June", almost two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. https://www.dodea.edu/dodeaCelebrates/Juneteenth.cfm

06/05/2020

The 2020 DoDDS Reunion ###II scheduled for July 15-19 at the Hilton Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska, has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Were we to go ahead with the reunion, it would not be the same — no tours, no groups larger than 10, five people to a 10-person banquet table. [And] we are well under 10% who indicated they wanted to proceed,” said the official event cancellation statement.

The entire room block has been cancelled by the hotel so those with reservations at the Hilton Omaha do not need to call to cancel their room reservation. It has been automatically cancelled.

Registration fees have either been fully refunded or rolled over for Reunion ###III in 2021. View the cancellation statement for detailed information.

Background

Each year, the DoDDS Reunion brings together the friendship and camaraderie of the special DoDEA, Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS), and Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools (DDESS) colleagues. While the venue moves to a different U.S. location each year, the genuine laughter and sense of family never changes.

Since 1946, educators have traveled to various overseas locations to provide education for the children of U.S. military families stationed there. DoDDS Reunion is made up of teachers, administrators, and support staff who taught in American schools all over the world. The umbrella encompasses those who have retired from or are still working in the DoDEA school system.

For more information, visit www.mydoddsreunion.com. Additional alumni information and reunions can be found on the DoDEA webpage at www.dodea.edu/students/alumni_orgs.cfm.

Note: The DoDDS Reunion is not a DoDEA-sponsored event.

Dr. Youlanda Washington says goodbye to DoDEA after serving more than 43 years in Education

The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) (DoDEA) Americas Region bids farewell to Dr. Youlanda Washington, the Kentucky Community Superintendent serving U.S. Army Fort Campbell and U.S. Army Fort Knox, after more than four decades of service to educating military-connected students.

“We celebrate the four decades plus of Dr. Washington’s exemplary dedication to military-connected students,” said Dr. Judith Minor, the DoDEA Americas Director of Student Excellence. “As a military child herself, her legacy of giving back to her community is one we honor today. Her mantra of “Doing all things in love” is one we should all strive to live by. Dr. Washington, you will be missed, but certainly not forgotten.”

A native of Dothan, Alabama, Dr. Washington grew up in a military family with her father serving in the U.S. Army while her mother was an educator. In her sophomore year, she moved to Fort Knox, Kentucky, where she attended and graduated from Fort Knox Middle High School.

“My dad raised us to serve the military,” said Dr. Washington. “He taught me that the Soldier, lived to protect and defend as well as care for the needs of the family. He told me as I was leaving for college that I am sending you to college to get an education and then you will return to the military.”

When she was graduating from college, Dr. Washington let her dad know she embraced his vision, she made it her own and would live out the vision to serve the Soldier by educating the military-connected student.

Dr. Washington serves as the Kentucky community superintendent overseeing ten DoDEA schools located on Fort Campbell and Fort Knox serving more than 5,100 students since 2017.

Prior to that assignment, she was the principal of Scott Middle School at Fort Knox. She served as the principal of Pierce Elementary School at Fort Knox. In 2003, she was selected as one of the minority candidates to serve in Kentucky’s first Minority Superintendent Internship program and served as an assistant superintendent in Oldham County Schools in Kentucky. She also taught 6th grade for 16 years at Macdonald Middle School at Fort Knox where she was the speech and debate coach from 1976 to 1992.

She was recognized as the Fort Knox Teacher of the Year and finalist for Kentucky Middle School Teacher of the Year in 1989. During her tenure at Pierce Elementary School, Dr. Washington was recognized as the finalist for the State of Kentucky Elementary Principal of the Year in 2000.

Dr. Washington’s education includes a Bachelor of Science degree, a Master’s of Arts, and a Rank I from Western Kentucky University. In 2002, she earned her Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) from the University of Louisville. In 2004, she was awarded the Morphet Dissertation Award for the Outstanding Dissertation of the Year entitled, “Women in School Leadership: A Study of Female Superintendents in Kentucky.”

She authored several articles related to quality management and quality leadership. Her research focused on the role of a superintendent and the role of women in leadership. She has also produced educational videotapes focused on Cooperative Learning. Her publications have been presented at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) conferences and have been published in the Journal of Women in Educational Leadership.

Dr. Washington is married to Joe I. Washington, Jr. They have two sons, Joe and Kevin, and three grandchildren. She enjoys writing and has authored two books. Dr. Washington will retire at the end of May.

As she prepares to retire, Dr. Washington said she will miss all of the educators, military personnel, children, and families that she has had the honor to work with over the years and looks forward to the future that lies ahead.

“It has been my great pleasure to serve you on the journey of my life,” said Dr. Washington. “I want them to continue to be amazing and gifted people because they have so much to offer the world. Settle for nothing less than their best. Finish strong and remember to do all things to love.”

Mr. Joshua Adams has been selected as the new Kentucky community superintendent and will start in the summer.

DoDEA Pacific Announces Publication of SUN 46

OKINAWA — May 19, 2020 — DoDEA Pacific is proud to announce the publication of this year’s edition of the SUN, a collection of literary works, musical compositions, photography, and visual art work. SUN 46 presents the accomplishments of both students and staff from our schools in Japan, Korea, Okinawa, and Guam.

“Production of this year’s SUN has largely been overshadowed by COVID-19 and the ongoing effects left in its wake,” said DoDEA Pacific Director for Student Excellence Lois Rapp. “It is our hope that the student work featured in this SUN will be a light to you and that your will enjoy the collaboration of intellect, ability, and creativity featured within.”

The first edition of the SUN was published in April of 1975. The 171 entries printed in the first publication were selected out of 5,000 original submissions from students and staff members. Each successive year the publication was expanded. In 1980, SUN 6 included entries by over 500 individuals. Since 1980, the SUN has continued to publish approximately 500 entries each year and a total of more than 16,000 creative works have been included on its pages.

Graduation, curated by the Class of 2020

For many students, graduation from high school marks the completion of 13 years of educational and personal growth on the path to adulthood and independence. It is a time to celebrate academic, athletic and artistic accomplishments as well as bonds formed with friends and educators. The Class of 2020 has earned a celebratory send-off, just like the seniors that came before.

Former President Barack Obama will deliver a commencement address to graduating seniors nationwide as part of an hour-long multimedia Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class of 2020 event. This program will be aired simultaneously Saturday evening by more than 20 broadcast TV and digital streaming partners. Joining Obama will be NBA star and school founder LeBron James, Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, the Jonas Brothers and soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe, among others.

The event will feature highlights from thousands of student submissions, a collection of commencement addresses, celebrity performances and inspirational vignettes.

I'd just like to congratulate my cousin, Colleen English, who is leaving her teaching job at Spangdahlem Elementary and will be starting her new job as assistant principal at Lakenheath Elementary. Good luck!!
The families of the Senior Class at Lejeune High School are NOT happy about the graduation for our small class of graduates. Dodea Mid-Atlantic District and Dodea Lejeune High School we have repeatedly told you how we felt with NO communication between administration and the parents. We are being told how things will be handled even though the command has repeatedly informed you that they can accommodate a different graduation ceremony OTHER than the approach you are taking. We had NO say in this and as we emerge into phase 2, our ideas are legitimately feasible. I feel so sad regarding the lack of cohesive communication between administration and the students!!! NOT ONCE has administration worked with us this year on ANYTHING...as a DoDDS kid myself growing up and coming from a very supportive school overseas for my kids (Naples Middle High School), I am absolutely flabbergasted on how LHS has supported it's families. This graduation is like the cherry on the cake. Unbelievable.
We the parents of the C/O 2020 for Lejeune High School in the Mid-Atlantic district are wanting to know why there was a conference call set up for tomorrow to discuss possible plans of a modified graduation if you all were never going to go through with listening to us. We know that tomorrow we will be in Phase 2, granting there to be groups of 25 and therefore we could have 3-4 staggered groups of Seniors to have a traditional graduation. There are schools that have 10 times the amount of graduated that we have, who have put forth great efforts to make sure their kids have a real graduation. There was nothing but deception put forth from the beginning when we were told that the virtual graduation was a “back up” plan. You knew your intentions the whole time. To say that we are upset for being misled is a understatement. You agreed to try to come to a happy medium and you never had any intention of doing so.
The College Board is giving exams such as the AP exams that will require military children in Asia to take the exams at 3am and 5am. The College Board has not answered any of these concerns on their website, page or FAQ. What steps has DoDEA taken to contact the College Board to advocate on behalf of military children?
❤People Please Love And Support These Department For Building🌞 Feuture Of Our Kids❤🌍🌏
Thank goodness over my rare teaching positions for 32 years I never had to deal with something so horrendous as this. Theses are unprecidented times. I applaud all teachers serving overseas for our military families. I felt I was asked above and beyond but these are life saving procedures. They can't even come home and are trapped by a virus. God Bless them all. Listen to Tom Brady's speech to a reporter.
It’s Friday! Great week of virtual school. Big thanks to Pam Borgert best teacher in DODEA! We took a lunch break, went to Annie’s favorite, Taco Bell ( gross) and had a “Nannie and Annie” manicure! Came home, Annie knocking out the last of the weeks school work, then 45 minutes of reading! Let the weekend begin!
Together we can keep everyone healthy!
When will selections be made for next year's positions?
I wish we can teach all the 8th graders in Albritton middle school at Fort Bragg.NC .cooking classes as elective class that will be awesome.
What I am most thankful for during this Corona virus boondoggle: “Pam Borgert” (Humphreys West Elelmentry School 4th Grade Teacher) In the 38 years of raising children I have dealt with good teachers, middle of the road teachers and a few horrible teachers. Pam is by leaps and bounds the best! Since day one, She has been online for her students from 5am to 8 pm, email daily assignment sheets, giving instruction, answering questions and offers personal video instructions. I have never met a more dedicated, encouraging and caring teacher. She is the best Elementry teacher in DODEA. Love Love Love 💗
