A Message from Principal Jackson
I hope everyone is well. Let me start by saying how much we miss our students and families! It feels like so long since we have been able to see and talk to you all! Please remember to reach out if there is anything we can do to be of assistance.
I am very excited to announce the addition of a new member of our Miner Family, Assistant Principal Antwan Lee. Mr. Lee officially started this week and is quickly getting acquainted with Miner. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience from both the charter sector and DC Public Schools. Please see my letter of introduction for AP Lee attached below.
He is very excited to be on the team and he cannot wait to get to meet with staff, students, and families. Later in the summer we will hold a virtual meet and greet - details will be shared as they are available.
Lastly, as a reminder, we are looking to share access to teacher assignments for next year sometime next weel. Only students who are re-enrolled will be on those assigned rosters so please complete your re-enrollment by the end of this week to ensure your student is on a roster when it is shared!
DCPS Schools remain closed to normal business at this time and teachers are on leave starting this week so if you need anything from the school, here are the best contacts to use:
Principal Jackson - firstname.lastname@example.org

Stay safe and let the school know if we can be of any assistance.

Miner Mutual Aid Action Team
Miner Mutual Aid Network Update
The Miner Equity Committee Mutual Aid Action Team is pleased to report a new partnership with the Ward 6 Mutual Aid Network and non-profit Serve Your City to provide additional support to our community. The partnership has already resulted in several Miner families receiving support in the form of food, household items and COVID-19 protective supplies.
This new partnership will help ensure the Miner Mutual Aid Network can fulfill support requests more efficiently. While the Miner Mutual Aid Network is still accepting financial donations, we are also encouraging our community to support the Ward 6 Mutual Aid Network and Serve Your City.
The Miner Mutual Aid Network is working with Serve Your City to plan a community table event in July. The event will take place at Miner and provide the Miner and greater Rosedale community with the opportunity to pick up food and supplies. We will announce a date for the event soon. If you are interested in volunteering to assist with the event, please email email@example.com with the subject Volunteer.
Supporting One Another
Mutual Aid is not a one-way transaction and we encourage everyone to consider how they may be able to support our community throughout the current pandemic and beyond. Please click here to view our intake form and indicate areas where you may be able to help. We are particularly interested in any employment and financial services support.
We also ask that you share information on our network with your contacts in the community. Below are links to our webpage and intake form you can share.
Thank you all for your continued support of our community. Stay safe, stay positive, and stay informed.
