Greetings Ward 8 Families and Community Members,

I am excited to share that DC Public Schools will be hosting the Ballou Feeder Fest! The purpose of the Feeder Fest is for families and communities to learn more about the schools directly in their feeder pattern, and for schools to build and strengthen relationships within their feeder pattern. This event is like EdFEST but is feeder-specific and will be hosted at the feeder high school. It will be a great opportunity for families and community members to learn and build relationships with the many great DC Public Schools ready and available right in your feeder pattern.

See this flyer for more details, and below are the details for Ballou’s Feeder Fest:
• What: Ballou Feeder Fest
• When: Friday, November 22, 2019 – 4pm-7pm
• Where: Ballou High School – 3401 4th St. SE Washington, DC 20032
• Who: All current, in-boundary, and feeder families, feeder schools, and community members in Ballou High School’s feeder pattern are invited. Council members and other government officials have also been invited.
• RSVP: balloufest.eventbrite.com
• Additional Details: Feeder Fests will include remarks from the feeder high school, a building tour, student performances, popcorn, water, cotton candy, face painting, a live DJ, and more!

If you have any questions about the Feeder Fest, your feeder pattern, or the My School DC lottery in general, the DCPS Enrollment Team is ready to assist at [email protected] or (202) 478-5738.

We look forward to seeing you at your upcoming Feeder Fest!

INFORMATION SHARING - This message has been sent to the families at Malcolm X ES @ Green because of an incident that occurred.

Dear Malcolm X Elementary School Parents and Families:

At Malcolm X, we highly value and are committed to fostering a safe and secure learning environment. A large part of that commitment is notifying parents of safety concerns when they arise.
Upon arrival this morning, we discovered there had been a break-in at our building overnight. We immediately contacted the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) and identified areas of the building that were vandalized. MPD and DC Public Schools Police arrived quickly, collected a report of the incident, and launched their proceedings. To be clear, students were never in danger as this incident occurred before student arrival.
Impacted classes were temporarily relocated to the cafeteria as their classrooms were cleaned. There is an increased police presence at our school right now due to the active investigation, so please do not be alarmed. Students will return to their classrooms after lunch.
There will be no afterschool programming today, as we work to clean and ensure the security of our building.
The safety of our students is paramount at all times. If you have any questions related to this incident, please call the school office at (202) 645-3409 or contact me via email at [email protected].
Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,
Zara Berry-Young
Principal, Malcolm X Elementary School
