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!

EKNA Neighbors, due to the holiday and the storm today, there will be no trash pick up this week for normally Thursday pick ups. We know this is very inconvenient, but if you could hold your trash until next week that would be most appreciated. And if you need to get rid of trash, you can always use the Port Richmond Sanitation Center (Castor and Wheatsheaf Lane) http://www.philadelphiastreets.com/sanitation/residential/sanitation-convenience-centers/

    Philadelphia Streets:
    Residents wishing to use the Sanitation Convenience Centers must show proof of Philadelphia residency as the centers are free for City residents' use only. Residents can drop off regular household items once a day and oversized items once a week. Personal passenger vehicles/pickup trucks may be used, or commercial/rental trucks (i.e., U-Haul, Rider, Home Depot, etc.)
