JEH and Westside Back to School Jamboree and Child First Authority Back to School Drive

As most already know, John Eager Howard is scheduled to temporarily relocate to Westside Elementary School, beginning in January 2016. The relocation is so that construction on our newly renovated school building can begin!

To foster positive relationship building, John Eager Howard and Westside Elementary School are hosting a Back to School Jamboree: Unity in the Community. This event is a field day for kids, resource fair for families, and cookout for all.  It will be held on August 26 from 2-4 p.m. at the Chinese Pavilion at Druid Hill Park.

John Eager Howard and Westside Elementary School will be also collecting back to school donations to share across schools for students who may not have a backpack, pocket folder, pencils, and crayons on the first day and throughout the school year. Donations can be made at the Child First Authority table during the resource fair.

Stay tuned for more details on the transition happening between our schools, and for ways that you can become more involved.
