Booker T. Washington High School recently hosted its annual Title I Open House.
“We discussed the school data and we received input on the Title I plan and budget,” explained Dr. Charcia Nichols, Principal of Washington High School- Banking, Finance, and Investment. “We reviewed the parent compact forms and discussed ways to encourage students to complete additional community service hours.”
GivingPoint participated in the open house event and spoke with parents and students about a variety of community service opportunities throughout the city of Atlanta.
GivingPoint is a nationwide community-based youth development organization that inspires a passion for learning and service through cutting edge technology resources, virtual educational modules, and hands-on volunteer opportunities. GivingPoint was created to help youth discover their unique passion, fuel their spark, elevate their ideas and share their stories to create a better, more connected and socially responsible world.
“This was a great event for the school,” Dr. Nichols said. “Several alumni were also in attendance to support the event.”
This year guests enjoyed a wonderful spaghetti dinner during the open house. The food was prepared by Washington’s Culinary Arts teacher, Chef Sinclair. Many parents said they left the open house event informed and FULL.
