Virtual School Tour Movie Night at Stanton Elementary

For the 5th year in a row, DCSRN sponsored Virtual School Tour Movie Night at DC Scholars Stanton Elementary. In line with the theme "Leveling Up for Middle School," a packed house of parents and 5th grade students explored the next level of their education. After eating dinner and hearing from former Stanton students about their own middle school experiences, families watched virtual school tours of quality middle schools, met with school partners, and completed applications with DCSRN parent advocates. Thanks for your support in making this night a success!
