Yesterday the Bruce-Monroe @ Park View (BMPV) Elementary School had another successful Family Night. The school generally has a family night about every other month. If you aren’t a parent of a BMPV student, or haven’t had the opportunity to experience a family night before, they are set up to run for about two hours ending with a meal in the cafeteria. Each family night has several tables with stations that have educational themes. As students visit and participate in each station, they get their “passport” stamped with a sticker. The validated passport grants entrance to the cafeteria.

The themes/participants of yesterdays stations are below:

Social Studies

  • Playworks/Character building
  • Neighborhood Walking Tours (which I hosted and handed out Park View tour brochures)
  • President Lincoln’s Cottage

Science

  • Park View Recreation Center
  • Colored Lights
  • Habitat Dioramas
  • Layers of the Earth
  • Seasons

Math

  • Symmetry
  • Measurement
  • Shapes Bingo

Language Arts

  • DC Public Library
  • Achieve Tutoring
  • Pencil Design (with Ward1 School Board candidate David Do)
  • Technical sound Boards with Create
  • “Elephant and Piggy” Puppets
  • Poetry!

It was a a fun event at which I really enjoyed meeting the schools faculty, parents, and students.

    Well-attended is right! I can’t wait until they get the lifts installed so they can start having wheelchair access for parents to attend events in the gym where there is more space.
