Warrior Families,


We are one-third of the way through our first quarter. You have heard from your student about what they are most excited about and likely things that give them pause. We know that the start of the year moves fast, but we want to double down on our commitment to meet students' needs. Don't hesitate to contact our team members with questions or with me. 


This is also the best time for you to log into Canvas and Infinite Campus to get a sense of how your student is doing academically, being sure of how often each is on time to class and school. Incredible growth happens when students know that the adults who support them at home and school are on the same page.


Below are some key dates over the next month. I encourage you to keep an eye on our Community Calendar. This is a great place to answer questions about what is coming up for your student and the school.  


  • 9.17 Senior Picture Day
  • 9.28 TMA Board Meeting
  • 9.29 Senior FASFA Night (12th Grade)
  • 9.30 Howard Law Day (10th Grade)

Student Opportunities

Seeding Disruption REMIX (SDX) is a DC youth organizing fellowship for racial justice.


Learn more and apply today!


SDX fellows are 10th-12th grade students from all over DC who come together over the school year to build the skills, knowledge, relationships, and courage they need to make a change in their communities. For the year-long SDX experience, students learn how to interrupt injustice in their communities, connect with adult leaders and other students across DC, and develop important skills and powerful relationships to continue leading for change.


  • SDX fellows choose one core injustice to spend the year learning about, identifying root causes, and working to disrupt by advocating for their freedom dreams of a more just world. 
  • Students attend monthly sessions, conduct independent work, participate in mentor sessions with SDX alums, and meet with SDX leaders and adult allies to refine their project ideas.


The fellowship is open to 10th–12th graders in DC who have the passion and interest to make a difference in their communities. We meet once a month in person on Saturdays, often at the MLK library. We will also be taking a trip outside of the DMV to deepen our learning about organizing and establish connections with other changemakers. 


Students receive access to seed money to get their projects off the ground and a stipend of $1,000 for their participation in the program. Read more here.
