We have some exciting news to share. This summer we will be working with the Department of General Services (DGS) to install exterior doors at Eliot-Hine MS. We are excited for a few reasons.  The new exterior doors will not only improve the appearance of the building, but more importantly they will help us in ways that will directly impact the students and staff. New exterior doors will improve school security, increase functionality, and offer more transparency. It is going to be a great upgrade to the building. View full details here.

AWS' Saturday Environmental Academy still has some open spots in its FREE spring program for 7th/8th graders/families. SEA's spring program will run from March 11 - May 20 and will focus on "Protecting Parks in Your Community!"

Students will engage in an AWS wetland planting on Kingman Island, a boating trip on the Anacostia River, a tree inventory in a local park with Casey Trees, a garden workday with City Blossoms, an Earth Day cleanup, an overnight trip, and more!
