Call for community members and parents!

On April 12th, the Greater Center City Neighborhood Schools Coalition is partnering with Education Voters and other Philadelphia parents, students and community members to hold a mock bake sale to protest insufficient funding for public schools.  The message we are sending is that we can't possibly sell enough cookies to cover the budget gaps caused by systemic underfunding of public schools.  Elected officials at all levels need to come up with the necessary resources to provide an opportunity to learn for every student!

This event will be held at City Hall.  At 2pm, there will be a cookie delivery to members of City Council.  Then at 4pm there will be a rally and cookie event outside, with parents and students.

Please join us for this event!  Parent groups from across the city will be meeting for either one or both of the events to show our strength and our voices.  This is part of a statewide effort to create these types of events throughout the Commonwealth during the week of April 9th

When:  April 12th, 2 pm and/or 4 pm.
Where:  City Hall, meet of the sidewalk on the North side (at N. Broad Street)
What you can do:  Plan to attend and bring a friend and bring a few baggies with cookies for distribution too.

Important meetings this week!

Attention Supporters of Stanton!

Next week is an important week for E.M. Stanton School. It is the week we find out the final vote of the SRC. We hope it will be positive and that our school will remain open.

Please come out on the day of the vote: Thursday, March 29 at 5:30 pm at 440 N. Broad Street (2nd Floor). Come early so you can secure a seat. Wear your SOS shirt or a yellow shirt.

In addition to Thursday’s meeting, some of our supporters are testifying at a City Council hearing on Tuesday, March 29 from 9 am – 1 pm in City Hall, Room 208. Please show up to support if you are available. The hearing will focus on the impact of school changes, including school closures. The School Reform Commissioners are scheduled to testify as well as other important stakeholders.
