Happy New Year! It's our first week back from winter break, and exciting things are already happening at New Community for Children!
New Community for Children was treated to a performance by National Symphony Orchestra violinist Glenn Donnellan! Glenn came to perform for our kids as part of NSO In Your Neighborhood 2013. This year's NSO community engagement initiative brings free performances and educational activities to U Street/Howard/Shaw.
The theme of Glenn's performance was Follow that Fiddle. The kids learned all about the history of the violin, also known as the fiddle. Glenn played a few songs and taught the kids how to make some really cool sounds with a fiddle. The kids were really excited when Glenn made the fiddle sound like a galloping horse!
This is just one of the many exciting things happening at New Community for Children. We invite you to come see our kids in motion! Our one-hour tours take place twice a month at 4:30 pm.

As we prepare to celebrate the holiday season and welcome a new year, we at New Community for Children wanted to take a moment to share our gratitude to everyone who has supported us this year! It is through your support that we have been able to provide an academically and socially enriching program to 100 kids after school and during the summer in 2012. Although we are proud to provide programming that is intellectually stimulating to our children, we are more proud to be a nurturing and supportive safe space for our kids. We are able to meet the many needs of our kids because of you!
On behalf of all of us at New Community for Children, we are so grateful for your generosity! We could not make such a great impact on the lives of the children and families we serve without your support. Thank you!
We wish you a wonderful holiday season and a joyous and prosperous new year!
After completing a great seven week summer program, our after-school program for 100 kids has just begun! This school year, we are building upon the successes of our summer program by continuing to engage kids in activities that support the process of learning, encouraging them to ask questions and make connections to bolster their success this school year.
In addition to academic enrichment in subjects such as mathematics, literacy and science, our students will engage in activities such as gardening, cooking, yoga, karate, and art. Yoga and karate are newer additions to our curriculum that students have been engaged in since the spring. The students are really enjoying these components and some of our kids will even be testing to receive a higher level karate belt!
This school year is shaping up to be a great one for the kids and staff at New Community for Children. Our success is possible because of you! Thank you for your continued support!
At New Community for Children, our staff and students are winding down a great school year, and gearing up for an amazing summer! New Community's theme for the summer program is "NCID: New Community Investigation & Discovery". Over the summer, students will be engaged in activities that support the process of learning. This summer's theme is designed to encourage students to ask questions and make connections as we get students moving and going towards their successes in the upcoming school year.
In addition to the academic component, students will engage in programming such as karate and yoga, which supports our goal of keeping our students active physically and academically over the summer. We have extended our programming to 7 weeks, to ensure that our kids are fully prepared for the new school year.
Over the past few months, New Community has made some awesome upgrades to our program space. We would love to have you stop by and see just what we've done to the place! For more information, please visit our website www.ncfc-dc.org.
Thank you so much for your continued support of New Community for Children!
