Support the Stanford, Harvard, and Princeton Clubs' efforts to tutor students in grade K-3 at the Meyer Elementary School. Come see the National Building Museum, a magnificent Renaissance-style structure often called the most amazing site in Washington! Completed in 1887 to house the U.S. Government's Pension Bureau, the building's expansive atrium and massive Corinthian columns have made it the traditional site for Presidential inaugural balls! Since 1985, the building has been dedicated to educating the public about its features through exhibitions, lectures, and educational programs.
Joseph Rosa, Chief Curator, will talk about the museum and take interested guests on tours of select galleries, including a Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit. Drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be served in the historic Pension Commissioners Suite, which features an original painted ceiling and ornate fireplaces that create a stunning atmosphere.
The Adopt-A-School Program at Meyer Elementary, which focuses on improving students' reading, writing, and arithmetic skills every Saturday morning, is about to start its sixth successful year! Alumni tutors from local Stanford, Harvard, and Princeton clubs spend quality time with students and help them make good use of the school's educational Macintoshes. The program also features special events like interactive plays and animal exhibitions. This year's projects include wiring the school up to the Internet and teaching students about the environment in Rock Creek Park.
Proceeds from the program's annual benefit make it possible to cover the costs of opening the school every Saturday morning, maintain the computers used in the program, and purchase supplies. Be a part of another year of successful educational efforts! Contributions are fully tax-deductible. Entry fee largely tax deductible. Details available at the event.
The National Building Museum is located at 401 F Street, N.W. The closest metro stop is Judiciary Square on the red line. Parking is available on the street or in the Museum lot on F Street.
