CPS Trustee Helps Bring Environmental Education to Our Neighborhood

An advocate for the CPS community and for the neighborhood we’ve called home since our beginning, CPS Trustee Tonetta Graham has been involved with another significant project to benefit the people of Strawberry Mansion. Through her work as President of the Strawberry Mansion Community Development Corporation, in cooperation with Audubon of Pennsylvania and Outward Bound, she helped bring the Discovery Center to the area around the East Park Reservoir in Fairmount Park.

The article linked here discusses how the project came about and includes her perspective on how it benefits this community.

The gallery of photos, from the opening days, give a sense of what the Discovery Center looks like on the inside.

 

 

CPS in Our Community

This fall, CPS has continued our commitment to the C in our name. We continue to announce our presence in the neighborhoods and communities we call home.

On September 15th, we participated in the annual Strawberry Mansion Day. Thanks to the Strawberry Mansion NAC and CDC, along with Council President Darrell Clarke’s Office, for hosting this fantastic community celebration.

On October 13th, State Rep Donna Bullock and the Fairmount CDC hosted Girard Avenue Community Day. We are proud of our community-minded friends and advocates for hosting a festive and successful event!

2018 Family Council Red Carpet Affair

Our Family Council, guided by CPS parent/assistant teacher Mrs. Harris, held their Red Carpet Affair. Students and their families– along with some teachers and alumni– put on their best outfits to have a great time. They enjoyed delicious treats, dancing and hanging out with all their friends from the CPS community! Everybody looked great and had a great time!

Blue Ribbon Tradition Continues!!

On May 17th, many months of hard work and great reading paid off for our Fourth and Fifth Graders. They attended the 2018 Philadelphia Reads Reading Olympics at LaSalle University. The two teams of CPS students each went up against three other schools, correctly answering enough questions to earn our school blue ribbons for the eighth straight year.
