in the Community: December 2020

Happy Holidays! Last month was filled with exciting news across our DC family, including our partnership with ProjectGiveBack to distribute food to families, the announcement of Tony Lewis as our new Board Chair, and the launch of the National Alumni Network support thousands of alumni across the country.

As we close out the year, I’m excited and encouraged by all of the work and sweat that our families, students, teachers, staff, and community have put into this year despite the many challenges.

Thank you all for partnering with DC. I’m looking forward to continuing to work together for ALL students as we march into 2021!

Stay safe and healthy
