September Highlights

 Back to School !

Students are already back in schools. 

Do you know the safest routes to school?  Here are the Safe Corridors developed by Town Watch Integrated Services and the City of Philadelphia.

Maybe you are looking for things to do after school?  The Free Library of Philadelphia has programs for students all over the city.  Check in at your local library for what they have in your neighborhood!  Going digital is more your thing?  The library has you covered there, too!  Use your library card to access 16 different online learning sites!

The After School Activities Partnership has programs all across the city.  Curious about cooking?  Mad about martial arts? Looking to invest in IT?  There may be a group closer than you think.  Look through the ASAP site for just the right group for you - or maybe one for each day of the week!  Whatever your age, whatever your interest, we know you'll find something that suits you!

Each September people around the globe take a day to come together in an effort to promote peace.  Here is what is happening in Philadelphia.

If you want to bring Peace Day into your school, here are some ideas:

Elementary Schools

Middle and High Schools

But don't worry if your children's school is celebrating, you can do something right at home.  Plan a trip to the library and share these books with your kids at home!
