4-H Update

What's new in 4-H?

Under the leadership of Jaime Brown, 4-H students at Bruce Monroe Elementary School at Park View raised quails as part of their Embryology STEM project. The quails were born in a classroom, but have since moved to the Hard Bargain Farm as the winter break approaches. Bruce Monroe was built in 1916 and has been recognized as a historic landmark. At core of their curriculum is a Dual Language Immersion Program that provides each student with daily rotations between English and Spanish instruction. 

In other 4-H news, our youth attended the grand opening of the Microsoft Store in Bethesda. The National 4-H program was awarded $350,000, with an additional $2,000 store credit being awarded to the Center for 4-H and Youth Development, home of DC's state 4-H program. Thank you, Microsoft!

For more information on the Center for 4-H and Youth Development, contact Mrs. Rebecca Bankhead at or (202) 274-7081.
