On Saturday, August 24th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at Ballou Senior High School, located at 3401 4th St. SE Washington, DC 20032, I’m hosting the 2nd Annual Back 2 School Cookout & Haircuts events to benefit not only my students at Hart Middle School but the surrounding DCPS schools in the community, who are starting school on August 26th.
One of the major intentions for the event is to provide families with another opportunity to enroll their children prior to the first day of school. Please bring proofs of residency and or complete the reenrollment application.
This event will encompass a back to school cookout, (basic) haircuts and hair do’s, at least 125 giveaways of book bags with school supplies, potentially the Howard Colgate Van along with other health related providers, and there may be colleges and military personnel participating as well. There should be anywhere from 7-10 barbers and 5-7 beauticans on site.
This is a collaboration Campus2Careers, Baltimore Barbers and Beauty School, the Mu Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., the Washington Teacher’s Union, Hart’s Community In Schools, Ballou, the Ward 8 Education Council, the Stafford Foundation, my family, community constituents, and the schools who receive students from the Ward 8 community.
