Our next meeting this Sunday at 3:30 at the library, come learn what we're working on and how you might pitch in!
GW Childs Elementary School instruments will be part of this wonderful project organized by Temple Contemporary happening this weekend in Philadelphia. We know that the creative arts are an essential part of public school education, and we're lucky to have a great music teacher in Mr. Taber working at GW Childs. He's currently raising funds to purhase some new guitars for his students. Please look in the comments below for a link to help make this happen! https://www.npr.org/sections/deceptivecadence/2017/11/30/567064772/the-healing-sound-of-a-broken-orchestra
Our next General Meeting is coming up on Sunday, December 10! We’ll be giving an update on our rooftop playground development, sharing details on our first big fundraising event, and sharing more ideas on how to support our local school. We’ll also talk about the January enrollment process for those of us with soon-to-be kindergartens!

Board Member & current President Jennifer Devor was recently featured on 20 by Seventy, the Committee of 70's podcast. The topic was "choosing" Philadelphia as a young professional and of course, public education is a big part of that discussion. G.W. Childs gets a nice shout-out, as does our principal Dr. Coutts!
A big thank you to Councilman Kenyatta Johnson for really moving the ball on getting a new playground built at G.W. Childs Elementary School
NICE and G.W. Childs Elementary in the news! https://southphillyreview.com/improvements-coming-to-vare-and-childs-400cf182444d
WOW, Alisha! Great work on your part to make our community a fun, safe place to learn! We're proud of you! “Childs is a neighborhood school whose students come from different backgrounds and have different personalities. It’s a school where we come together to work as one. We learn from each other, push each other, and help each other succeed.”
Here are some great projects that GW Childs is raising money for - see how you can help!
WOW! What a great day. NICE and G. W. Childs received $100,000 from Councilman Kenyatta Johnson towards the redevelopment of the rooftop playyard! As our President, Jen Devor told the students: "This work is for all of you. You're great kids and you deserve great things" Look for us on Fox and ABC news! More big plans to come!
