Several fathers and father figures in both the upper and middle school have joined Project D.A.D., an effort to engage men in connecting with each other and providing enhanced support for the young people in our community, especially those who are most at risk. We are so grateful to see so many dads who are active at Washington Latin as volunteers, in parent conferences, and in mentoring programs. This program helps provide a support system through regular meetings and activities for fathers to share ideas and get feedback on tackling some of the challenges of raising adolescent and preadolescent children. The program is being coordinated with help from Assistant Principal, Bob Eleby-El. To learn more, please contact him at or at (202) 909-2199.
