Good morning council members and neighbors. My name is Charlie Melchior-Fisher, and I’m here with my classmates from the Capitol Hill Montessori @ Logan. We need to have a science lab. Our school is adding a middle school, and I’ll be a 7th grader there. DCPS says every middle school and high school student should have high quality science, but our school has never had a science lab. We will need one for years to come, so we ask you to give us 20,000 to 30,000 dollars so we can get proper science equipment for the coming year. We know that it may seem like we’re asking for a lot, but science is important to the curriculum and the world. Thank you for listening.
