Family School Pride Exposure Is Key by Alicia Dorsey

DSCF1341.JPGBeing a grandmother has ups and downs, today i would like to share an up for me!! The beauty of living in rich cultural Philadelphia is having The Free Library of Philadelphia as the catalyst to explore various cultures with their Sunday on Stage series. Sunday on Stage enhances reading about culture by bringing to life the images and instruments used by various cultures.i didn’t want to get up today, but knowing that i could take my grandson and his sister to our central library to learn about our culture was motivation. For there is very little to no history passing going on in my family gatherings. Exposure is key and i try to expose our youth and families to most everything good for us.

The School District of Philadelphia Family and Community Engagement Conversation Series Support for Incarcerated Parents

Attended Conversation number two at the School district on Tuesday. Great information was shared. I am impressed with Evelyn Sample-Oates Director of F.A.C.E. who decided to host the conversations to hear from the families what their needs are and how the school district can better serve the families. We learned so much at this conversation on support for incarcerated parents.

Family School Pride "That's My School"

No comments:
That’s My School
Up at my school,
Everyone is different,
Yet we are treated,
Like an equal.
Everyone is always smiling,
Or laughing so hard,
They start to cry,
That’s my school.
