Watkins ES is Ready for Students!
DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, DCPS Chancellor Antwan Wilson, and Councilmember Charles Allen (Ward 6) joined our Watkins administrators, teachers, staff, and students for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at Watkins Elementary School today.
It was a very meaningful way to celebrate all those individuals and groups that facilitated this stellar renovation: the CHCS PTA, Cluster administrators and teachers, the DCPS Facilities Team, responsive and supportive elected officials, and all of the members of our School Improvement Team. Thanks to each and every one of you for this beautiful and inspiring learning environment!
As a bonus, we learned that Watkins and Stuart-Hobson both made impressive gains on the PARCC test: Watkins can boast about +12% ELA and +9% Math, and Stuart-Hobson can be extremely proud of +15% ELA and +6% Math!
It’s been an extraordinary day for the Capitol Hill Cluster School!
