On Nov. 1, Amidon-Bowen held a Family Fun Day and Open House. Activities included soccer on the new field, computers in the library, imagination foam blocks in the cafeteria, and basketball in the gym. In addition, there was a bake sale to benefit the Amidon cheerleaders coached by Ms. Young and a raffle held by Brookland Collaborative.
Mr. Welles and Mr. DarConte conducted a tour of the school for parents and visitors, who included ANC 2B03 Commissioner Stephanie Maltz (Dupont Circle). Commissioner Maltz is a member of the Ward 2 Ed Network advocating for Ward 2 Schools who participated in the day’s events to support Amidon-Bowen in Ward 6.
Ward 6 Councilmember Elect Charles Allen attended to show his support, chat with parents and teachers, and enjoy some of the fun.
In other news, Amidon-Bowen’s Artist-in-Residence Sculpture was completed and is on display in front of the building.
On Dec. 2 at 6:00 pm there will be an important informational session about the DCPS lottery and enrollment process at Amidon-Bowen.
On Dec. 15 there will be a school Open House. Parents will have the opportunity to observe classes, meet teachers, tour the school, and ask any questions that might help them make this important decision about their child’s schooling. The tour will meet in the lobby at 9:00 am.
