Dear Parents and Guardians,


Once again, it is a great pleasure to welcome your family to Mary McLeod Bethune Day Academy (MMBDA) for school year 2018-2019! 

We look forward to a year of fun, discovery and growth together. To help us deliver the most efficient administrative process, please be sure to return all elements of the enrollment packet as promptly as possible. If there are any outstanding enrollment documents, requests and reminders will be made after the start of the school year.

In an early effort to establish and foster the home-school connection that is a central component of the MMBDA way, teachers will begin to reach out to schedule home visits with families of Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4 students in late August. You will have the option to schedule the visit for your home or for another familiar location outside of the school (eg. local library or coffee shop). The purpose of home visits is for teachers to make introductions, and to discover ways to best serve your child(ren)'s interest before meeting in the classroom. 

Lastly, there will be several opportunities for engagement within the MMBDA community before September. Our parent teacher organization (PTO) will host our final summer play date from 10am-12pm at the Hamilton Recreation Center, located at 1340 Hamilton St. NW. Also, for children e. 

I am so excited about the action-packed school year ahead of us. Thanks again for choosing us to be your family’s partners in education.
