Barnes & Noble Book Fair
Thank you to all who came to support the Barnes & Noble Bethesda Book Fair last Saturday, December 6, 2014. 20% of book sales proceeds will go directly to purchasing program and classroom materials for all Wonders programs. Wonders also collected new books donations for our friends at A Wider Circle.
Activity Bus for Wood Acres Elementary
We are now offering an activity bus for Wood Acres Elementary School students who are participating in after school activities. Children enrolled in Wonders at Little Falls will be picked up at Wood Acres on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays after their after school activities and brought to Wonders on the Wonders shuttle bus. Contact Senate Alexander for more details.
Meet a Board Member: Brian Price
Hi there! I am proud to be in my second year as a member of the Wonders Board of Directors and I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I recently moved back to the DC area with my family after living in Los Angeles for 15 years, working as a screenwriter and a Professor of Screenwriting at UCLA. My wife Celia and I have two sons, Maddox (3 years) and Levi (14 months), both enrolled at Edgemoor (an Angelfish and a Minnow).
While I keep busy writing, teaching online, and (gasp) commuting up to Yale once a week for a class, I especially enjoy my work with the Wonders staff and community to help ensure the success and longevity of the many Wonders programs, particularly in my role on the Marketing Committee where we deal with everything from fundraising to developing longterm communications strategies.
And speaking of fundraising, I hope that you‘ll join me in supporting the organization that has come to mean so much to me and my family. Before my experience on the board, I had no idea tuition alone didn’t cover the costs of providing the quality early childhood education that is the hallmark of Wonders. We hope that you’ll consider a tax deductible contribution, at any time of the year, to Wonders to help ensure families in need have access to tuition assistance, that teachers can benefit from professional development opportunities, and so Wonders will continue to have the resources necessary to provide the learning environment we all want for our kids.
And don’t forget to come to the Politics & Prose Book Fair on February 7, and the Pink Party “Fiesta” on May 2nd at the Pink House! I look forward to meeting you in person at a future Wonders event – so please don’t hesitate to come up and say Hi!
