The school at 1200 S St. NW will host a parent-versus-teacher basketball game on its basketball court this Friday at 4:30 p.m., according to Garrison PTO treasurer Ayako Sato.

“It should be lots of fun, and our cheerleaders will give a half-time show,” Sato said. “We’re also selling hot dogs and drinks, and Jamba Juice on Dupont will be there to sell smoothies and gift cards.”

And the event isn’t just for families of Garrison students. “We are hoping to get community involvement, and this is open to everyone in the neighborhood,” Sato added. “And we are really encouraging new, incoming families to attend to get to know current Garrison families.”

All proceeds from the event will go toward funding school field trips.
