How do we connect who we are to what we write? In this workshop, young writers will discover just how powerful their words can be by exploring different styles and approaches to the craft of writing. DERRICK WESTON BROWN’S debut poetry collection is Wisdom Teeth, and his second collection is On All Fronts. He has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, and is a graduate of the Cave Canem and VONA Voices workshops. A native of Charlotte, North Carolina, he now lives in Maryland.

College Personal Statement Crash Course!
For high school students applying to college
Wednesday, June 30 from 1pm – 3pm EST
Register here

The dreaded words: personal statement. Colleges require them, but how do you begin to put yourself on paper? In this two-hour crash course, we’ll lead you through brainstorming ideas and clarifying those ideas into a topic. We’ll also cover the basic structure of the personal statement. You’ll leave with clear ideas about what to write and have the tools to move forward on your own to draft a transformative, powerful story about yourself.

THE CHEC GARDEN

The CHEC Garden was quite festive this week – Mr. Mendez’ Sources of Strength group and Ms. Crivelli hosted events, and a Learn24 Site Visit happened on June 9th.  Science class students participated in soil amendment exercises and everyone was amazed at all of the growth occurring – and with the rain at the end of last week will have the plants thriving through the end of the school year.  For all, the gate will be open during school hours.  Please feel free to visit with your class.  Ask your students – “Are there vegetables that you would like to grow in the garden?” Send all requests to robin.winer@dc.gov
