Summer Break

Summer break is here and DCPS is planning for a safe and healthy return to school in the fall.

School officials are asking families to take a few minutes to share their thoughts on how schools can reopen strong at either http://bit.ly/ReopenStudentSurvey or http://coronavirus.dc.gov/OurSchools.

While the student survey is intended for students in grades 3 through 12, DCPS encourages all parents and guardians to share their feedback on the safe reopening of schools.

Dorothy Rowley – Washington Informer Staff Writer

I knew I had to become a writer when at age nine I scribbled a note to my younger brother’s teacher saying I thought she was being too hard on him in class. Well, the teacher immediately contacted my mother, and with tears in her eyes, profusely apologized. Of course, my embarrassed mother dealt with me – but that didn’t stop me from pursuing my passion for words and writing. Nowadays, as a “semi-retiree,” I continue to work for the Washington Informer as a staff writer. Aside from that, I keep busy creating quirky videos for YouTube, participating in an actor’s guild and being part of my church’s praise dance team and adult choir. I’m a regular fixture at the gym, and I like to take long road trips that have included fun-filled treks to Miami, Florida and Jackson, Mississippi. I’m poised to take to the road again in early 2017, headed for New Orleans, Louisiana. This proud grandmother of two – who absolutely adores interior decorating – did her undergraduate studies at Virginia Union University and graduate work at Virginia State University.
