These two Philadelphia public schools enroll between 400-600 elementary students and serve the diverse south Philadelphia community. These schools are working hard to rise above current challenges and provide an excellent education for their students. Partnering with principals at both schools Andrew Lukov (Southwark), and Lisa Ciaranca-Kaplan (Andrew Jackson), as well as a liaison form the area's neighborhood association, Beth Dougherty, we have developed several projects which will make the school environments more cheerful (painting), and easy to use (organizing).
We are mindful that Friends Select volunteers encompass a wide age range, and will make every effort to insure something for everyone. In the upcoming weeks we will post more details about the day's plans.
