I first want to thank Ms. Gerrell Dodson (superstar LT parent!) for working all possible leads put us in touch with two fantastic partners: K&L Gates Law Firm (http://www.klgates.com/) and the Museum of Science Fiction (http://www.museumofsciencefiction.org/). Ms. Claudette Mills and Mr. Paul Stimers from K&L Gates, along with Mr. Greg Viggiano, from the Museum of Science Fiction, truly made this event possible for our entire K-5 student body, nearly 300 students, to take part in.
With the solar glasses, all students will be heading to our field from about 2:25 – 3:00. With it being the first day of school, all students will be returning back to the building for dismissal, as was done last year (K-2 from the classroom and 3-5 from the cafeteria). For any parents that are looking to support, please contact your homeroom teacher (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to the event and be sure to check in with the security guard at the 7th street entrance.
Furthermore, the Museum of Science Fiction would also like to invite the LT community to an exciting event over Labor Day Weekend. Further information below:
This Labor Day Weekend, do something really fun in Washington, DC!
Check out Escape Velocity – a major event by the Museum of Science Fiction and NASA. Come celebrate the genre with unique panel topics from hard science to pop culture; over-the-horizon technology; hands-on STEAM activities for kids; and amazing cosplay! Enjoy this year's film festival featuring “Metropolis” and evening events including “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” merch vendors, astronauts, authors, and so much more!
