From 4:30pm- 7:30pm at Audenreid Charter High School (3301 Tasker Street), Tasker Elite is hosting their annual free turkey dinner and asked me to help get the word out.

*PLEASE SHARE* There is still time! Register to be a Reading Captain as part of the City's Read by 4th initiative, managed by the Free Library of Philadelphia! A free workshop to train Reading Captains is happening this Monday, Nov. 6 from 6:00PM to 7:30PM in South Philadelphia Library’s Community Room (1700 South Broad Street). Register easily at: readby4th.org/reading-captains Currently, approximately two-thirds of Philadelphia students cannot read at grade level by 4th grade. On-track literacy is an important indicator of a child’s future academic and professional success, and the inability to read at grade level by the 4th grade is correlated to higher rates of dropping out of school, risky behavior, and incarceration later in life. Read by 4th is a citywide effort of over 90 organizations, public and private, large and small, aiming to significantly increase the number of students in Philadelphia entering the 4th grade at reading level by 2020. You can be a part of that too!

ICYMI: Yesterday, I was proud to join School District officials and Neighbors Investing in Childs Elementary (NICE) to present a check for $100,000 toward a new state of the art play space on the rooftop of George W. Childs Elementary School. The play space will be the result of NICE’s “Project Recess,” a multi-year initiative to involve students, teachers and community members in the conception and design of the reimagined rooftop. I have seen the positive impact a schoolyard can have on a child’s physical and emotional development, allowing kids to focus more on academics in class. I am a firm believer that all of our children deserve quality, safe, fun places to play and learn, and I have made it my goal to improve as many playgrounds in my district as I can.

VARE UPDATE: I am contributing $150,000 in capital improvement funds for Vare Recreation Center’s 1st floor to re-open in about 6 weeks, a workaround solution developed in partnership with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation. The second floor will remain closed indefinitely until a complete overhaul of the building is financially feasible. Vare’s Girls Gymnastics team will practice at Temple University’s gym, fees waived, until Vare reopens. Additional organized programming has been relocated during the closure; we continue to encourage families to check out other nearby recreation centers that offer space as well as additional after-school program options. I know this scenario is not perfect, but it is our best solution for the community at this time. $150K is a drop in the bucket of the millions it will cost to rebuild Vare Recreation Center. More to come.
