Check Out A Middle School Spelling Bee Tomorrow!

Dear Prince of Petworth,

I am writing on behalf of the Higher Achievement Program, an organization that has been challenging Washington, DC’s brightest middle school students to achieve higher academic standards for over 30 years. Our mission is to develop critical academic habits, behaviors, and attitudes in DC’s underserved yet motivated students to improve grades, standardized test scores, and attendance: all factors that foster acceptance into top high school programs. You previously posted some information about our organization on your web site on National Service Day.


I wanted to extend an invitation to you and your readers to come to our Ward 4 Achievement Center for our Annual Spelling Bee. On Tuesday, December 11th, our 5th through 8th grade scholars will challenge their academic limits in front of their peers and community members through an intense Spelling Bee competition. Winners of this Spelling Bee will go on to compete against their Higher Achievement peers at the Region-Wide Spelling Bee held the next week.


Here are the details:

  • When: December 11, 2007 from 6:00-8:00 pm
  • Where: ABC Public Charter School, 209 Upshur St., NW
  • RSVP: Mike Di Marco; 202-375-7721; [email protected]
