Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives Annual Holiday Open House (12/12) 

The Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives is hosting its Annual Holiday Open House on Saturday, December 12 from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. The purpose of this event is to showcase school/student pride and student contributions/successes in SY 2015-16. The museum invites schools and students to participate by way of music ensembles, choirs/choruses, theatrical/literary groups and student visual art. Since the Open House also celebrates the holiday season, prepared performances, presentations, and artwork related to the season are welcome. Students can also earn community service hours by serving as hosts, facilitators and museum docents. To register schools/students to participate, please contact the Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives at info.sumnerschool@dc.gov or 202-730-1420. The Open House will also feature activities for children and adults, along with light refreshments. The event is free and open to the public. The Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives Museum is located at 1201 17th Street, NW, three blocks north of the Farragut North Metro Station on the red line. The Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives is the official museum and repository for public education in the District of Columbia. This museum, housed in a historic 1872 school house, contains many exhibits, artifacts, memorabilia, printed media and other materials documenting the history of the people, places, and movements that make up the DC Public School System.
