Inaugural “Backyard Blast Off: Family Fun Day” is a Success!

June 27, 2016

On Saturday, June 4th, 2016, over 100 All-Star students and their families from Charles Hart Middle School (Ward 8), Browne Education Campus (Ward 5), and Stuart-Hobson (Ward 6) gathered at Stuart-Hobson Middle School for ASAS DC’s Family Fun Day. Starting from 11am families had the chance to interact with ASAS partner groups and classes that illustrated what our All-Stars were learning all year. Students played sports, painted at the “Enjoy Your Life” (EYL) 365 booth, learned about circuitry with TechBridge and brought the NBA Math Hoops game to life.

The day also included student performances from Majestic Charm Modeling, Drumline, and a sneak peek from Stuart-Hobson’s Lion King Musical. Flowgame Entertainment, a collection of young rappers from Charles Hart, brought the house down with their powerful verses and proved to be an easy transition to TrueCool, a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) performer who incorporated art, technology and engineering in his performance. We were happy to receive a visit from DC Council Member Elissa Silverman who stopped by during her very busy Saturday to see some of the performances.

Thank you to all those who made this day possible!
