I apologize for my recent absence. This month has been filled with new programs and opportunities. March has been a continuation of our “advocacy of the arts in Philadelphia” theme. We will be taking our first Philly Girls Read field trip this Thursday to Plays and Players Theater located just a few blocks from our school! We will receive a tour and engage in a discussion about the difficulties that surround running a theater. I hope to inspire the girls to support the arts in this city. Hopefully this is the start of a fantastic community relationship.
I submitted some of the girls writing to Philadelphia Stories Jr. They wrote wonderful poems about being community advocates. I hope to see them published this spring!
Monday nights I am a literacy coach at Reading STARS at Treehouse Books.
Tuesday nights I help lead a writing workshop at Mighty Writers called Girls Run The World.
Thursday nights I lead recreation activities at our new ICS program, Family and Schools Together.
This is going to be a crazy couple of months. Please stay tuned for updates on all of these fantastic programs.
