The Fun Continues

This week is jam packed at Thurgood Marshall Academy! There are so many activities that are going on. Last week, we began Homework Help and that continues to run after school. A special event that happened this week was our Volunteer Kick-Off Event. Yesterday at Morgan, & Lewis LLP, we hosted a happy-hour with food and drinks! This was a great opportunity for potential volunteers to speak to current or past volunteers and receive an accurate sense about what volunteering at TMA entails. Many of these volunteers will participate in either our tutoring or mentoring program. Teachers and faculty were present to answer any questions about Washington DC’s first law-themed public charter high school.

In addition to our Volunteer Kick-Off event, today is our Clubs Fair. The clubs fair is held in the cafeteria every year. It gives students a chance to see what extra-curricular opportunities are available at Thurgood Marshall Academy. The clubs available range from community service opportunities, to youth empowerment to book club to art club to fitness club and many more!! Every club will have a table with information about what activities and opportunities are available. Clubs that are run by external organizations will also be present at the Clubs Fair. We are very excited to have volunteers from Metro Teen Aids, Sister Action Sister Strength and George Washington University all assisting in running programs for our students this year. We are looking forward to the variety of clubs that will be occurring over the course of the school year!
