New Year, New Memories

Welcome to 2017!

Like all of your favorite publications, we revel in looking back on what we’ve done this year. Especially considering just how much fun we had: Our classes took students across D.C., where they learned about the city’s history, the people adding to its current chapter, and skills to apply throughout their lives.

We documented everything. Our photo library provides KCDC’s nostalgic daydreamers the opportunity to revisit fond memories as we get pumped for the new year.

From growing herbs to training for the circus, the diversity of our classes and their participants reflects how great you and D.C. are. Relive 2016 through a plethora of themes:

Taste buds: engaged


Creativity: pursued


Bodies: healthy


Other stuff


And we turned five!!!!!



Looking back gets us excited for what’s ahead. In 2017, we’re looking to dive deeper Behind the Scenes and into a variety of learning experiences throughout the District.
