    Harm reduction advocates: Philly's opioid lawsuit looks like 'scapegoating'
    When Paul Cherashore first heard about Philly's lawsuit against drug companies, three words popped into his head: Low. Hanging. Fruit. Wednesday morning, the city announced it would sue several national pharmaceutical companies in an attempt to hold them accountable for the part they played in Philly's opioid epidemic.

This is so wonderful we had to share! Yesterday, Beca Lufi, a Hackett parent and Temple math instructor, started an enrichment math center in Ms Barca's Kindergarten class room! She will come in to the class every 2 weeks and use an array of problem solving techniques to help children think about and work through math problems. If you are a parent at Hackett (or not!) and you have a skill or background that you would like to share with the Hackett school then reach out to us!
