D.C. children can grab some free food, jump on a moon bounce and dance to music at a Southwest school this weekend before classes begin later this month.

Jefferson Academy Middle School and Amidon-Bowen Elementary School are scheduled to have their second annual “Jamidon” Saturday, according to a flyer for the event. The party is slated to run from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Jefferson (801 7th St. SW).

In addition to Jefferson and Amidon-Bowen students and their families, the festivities are open to families with children at Beers, Brent, Tyler and Van Ness elementary schools.

Jamidon’s organizers are looking for volunteers to help with the event and Jefferson’s “Beautification Day” work, which is from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday. The Beautification Day includes painting, gardening and classroom setup.

Interested volunteers can sign up online.
