Hello Teachers, Counselors, and Principals,
As we all know that the 2020 - 2021 school year was a difficult time for many of our high school seniors. Many of them have been trying to thrive throughout this virtual learning experience. The Philadelphia Home and School Council wanted to do our part and celebrate some of these amazing young men and woman.
For this year, we have changed some protocols so that we can give a small token of appreciation to the class of 2021.
Because we feel that Teachers, Counselors, and Principals play a vital role in our children success, we did not want to leave any of you out of our process.
The insight you have is key and very much needed.
The Philadelphia Home and School Council will be giving small monetary awards to one student from each high school in the city, regardless if they have an member Home and School Association in the building.
This includes all public and public charter.
That's 73 schools, 73 seniors!
