Petworth community and neighbors,
Tonight the Chancellor of DCPS, Kaya Henderson, will be announcing some major changes and updates on the re-envisioning of Roosevelt SHS. These decisions will have a huge impact on our students, staff, and the wider community. It is very important that DCPS gets as much feedback as it can and the community comes and shows support for those affected. Join us at 7 pm in the auditorium of MacFarland Middle School (Roosevelt’s current home) and have your voice heard!
