(May 16, 2014) The Bishop Walker School for Boys in SE Washington, DC, hosted their annual “Family & Friends Day.” This is an opportunity for the boys to show what they’ve learned in their music program through live performances. Music and art are an important part of the curriculum of this tuition free school for boys from low-income families.
The formal music program is followed by parents, grandparents and other friends visiting the classrooms and meeting the teachers. Parents are very involved in this community of learners and they are an essential component of the boys’ overall success at BWS. There are many ways to support the work of BWS, which relies entirely on its own fundraising to run this school for at risk youth.
