Pajamuary!
Jan 1 – Jan 31 all-day

All month long, we will be collecting new pajamas (sizes 12-18 months, 2T, 3T & 4T) to donate to Martha’s Table so that their clients can be warm and cozy this winter, too.

Drop off new pajamas at Lindsay Kagin’s house – please email her at lindsayk@edcjcc.org for her address. For easier shopping, see a wishlist here of pajamas that will ship directly to Lindsay. All pajamas will be donated to Martha’s Table for distribution to families in need.

DC Preschool Parent Conversation
Jan 17 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Overwhelmed with what you saw at virtual school tours or maybe just at the thought of a school search during COVID? You’re not alone. Let’s come together and talk about the preschool process.

Children who turn three before October 1st, 2021 are eligible to apply for the DCPS public pre-kindergarten program for the 2021-22 school year. This competitive lottery can be stressful and confusing, even before the challenges of COVID. We will discuss practical strategies for selecting which schools to apply for through the public lottery, learn about what happens after results are revealed, and discuss questions from other parents. This program will be facilitated by the JFamily Ambassador, Ross Diamond, whose son is a virtual Pre-K 4 student at DCPS Garrison Elementary.

Inspiring Social Skills through Media
Jan 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Social skills lessons provide opportunities for adults to identify social cues and communication skills in typical social settings. This class reviews the social skills you may have learned when you were younger or in school as well as expand upon skills to use as an adult today. Using a variety of media formats as a basis for lessons helps break down the behaviors and allows for conversations and instruction on appropriate vs inappropriate behaviors.

The participants in this class will receive a handout each week on a topic and watch a short video link before class. During the class we’ll watch a variety of clips from TV shows and movies. Together we’ll discuss the behaviors and how they apply to our lives. There are opportunities to learn about different types of friendships, how to engage in conversations, verbal and nonverbal cues, appropriate use of social media, expected vs unexpected behaviors, compromising, etc.

Join Melissa Hochberg for this new program to enhance a variety of skills while virtually in the company of your peers! Registration is first-come, first-served. Limited space available. Please click here to register and use class code 13244 to find the course.

This virtual class is for participants ages 18+ and is presented in partnership with the Pozez JCC.
