VST Movie Night

6th Annual Virtual School Tour Movie Night

DCSRN is excited to be co-hosting the Virtual School Tour Movie Night for the sixth time at DC Scholars Stanton Elementary School on February 7th at 4:30pm. The movie night is a great way to engage 5th grade families in the middle school transition, and gives them several ways to participate and learn more about quality middle school options. Families begin the evening with dinner and a panel featuring former Stanton students and middle school principals, who will provide different perspectives on what makes their schools great. Parents and students will then watch virtual school tours of different quality middle schools, and then meet with partner school representatives to answer specific questions. DCSRN parent advocates will also be on hand to start and complete applications with families. 

The event is open to all families who want to learn more about the variety of middle school options in DC. Connect with DCSRN to find out more!
