Climbing wall, here we come! We just received the good word that CHM@L has been awarded a $10K DC Physical Activity for Youth (DC PAY) Grant from the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE).
The $10,000 grant will fund a rock climbing wall, new athletic equipment to expose our students to many sports (ie archery, bowling, etc), and a daily activity burst contest to get our kids moving! In addition, CHM@L will host a Harvest Festival in October in conjunction with DC School Garden/Farm to School Week to celebrate and teach families how to increase both physical activity and nutrition while having fun!
Thanks to grant rockstar parent Sameena Kluck and to the entire grants committee for making this happen!
Yet another reason to celebrate DCPS Volunteer Week – thank you!!!
