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!

Friends Of Hackett shared an event.

Last year local artist, Keith Warren Greiman, put together this wildly successful event to raise money for Hackett, and he's back to do it all again in just a few short weeks! Be sure to get there early because last year all the artwork was snapped up before the paint dried!

    Art For Hackett 2018
    40 of Philadelphia's finest art folks each contributed a 4"x4" painting. Every piece is $40 and the event is cash and carry. All of the $ goes to Hackett...
