WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO...


TFP&TPPCS Graduation 2023 🎓


On June 21st, Adult students from The Family Place Public Charter School received certificates of advancement and participation in our ESL, FOL and CDA programs. Also, children graduated from The Family Place’s ECE and HIPPY Home Visiting programs. It was an honor to accompany all our students in their journeys.


 

Teacher Appreciation Week! 💙


From May 6th to May 10th, we celebrated our teachers. They play a vital role in making TFP & TFPPCS stronger and more nurturing environments for all. Every day they inspire and empower our students, guide them through challenges and pave the way for a brighter future. Their love, patience, and dedication have touched countless lives in the DC Latino community.



 

Policy Center Releases Report on Adult Public Charter Schools 📊


We are proud to be part of the recently released D.C. Policy Center report on adult public charter schools titled 'A Landscape of D.C.'s Adult Public Charter Schools: Who They Serve, How They Serve, and What They Achieve,' which was released on May 23rd. As an organization committed to education, we greatly value our involvement in this important effort alongside the adult PCS community.


 

Children’s and Mother’s Day Celebration! ❤️👩‍👦‍👦


On May 4th we had a wonderful day celebrating mothers and children at Carter Barron Park. There were activities, raffles, delicious food, face painting, kites, piñatas, and fun games for everyone to enjoy.

We are proud to offer a safe space where families can gather, share, and build community.


 

6th Annual Reagan Institute Summit


6th Annual Reagan Institute Summit

We were thrilled to attend the 6th Annual Reagan Institute Summit on Education on May 25th. We learned so much from the incredible minds at the Regan Institute, including First Lady Jill Biden who shared a powerful message about the importance of hard work and the desire to build better lives for our families.


Let's seize the opportunity to work together to create positive change in education and pave the way for a brighter future.
