Join us for Field Day on Friday, June 1, at Von Colln Field! Was your Tiger on time, and in school 95% of the time? Then look out for a "Field Day Ticket" on green paper. This means they DON'T have to pay the $5 fee to get a shirt and pretzel! So please look for this ticket in your child's backpack or homework folder. (if you would still like to contribute, the HSA would be grateful) Don't forget, you can also volunteer during the day; from walking the students from the school to the field and back, chaperoning the event, and helping with the various games and activities. Help us make this Field Day memorable for all of our Tigers! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050e4aafae28a02-bache9

Henri Edmond Cross was born on this day in 1856. Originally named "Delacroix," he changed his name to the anglicized "Cross" to avoid confusion with the earlier artist. In 1884, Cross co-founded the "Société des Artistes Indépendants" where he met and befriended the neo-Impressionist painters Seurat and Signac, all of whom are represented in the Barnes Foundation collection. These artists, inspired by new optical theories, emphasized the use of separate, but interwoven touches of paint and a bright palette of contrasting hues to achieve greater vibrancy of color in the viewer’s eye. 🎨 Henri Edmond Cross. “Two Women by the Shore, Mediterranean,” 1896

    17 hidden gems of Fairmount Park, mapped

But there are plenty more spots, from gardens to sculptures to architectural gems, that are a bit more off the beaten path, yet very much worth the visit.

    City Council passes smoking ban, proposes higher fines for absentee landlords
    Certain Philadelphia bus stops will become smoke-free zones. On Thursday, the City Council passed legislation banning smoking at those SEPTA bus stops that have a roof and at least one enclosed side. The new legislation complements smoking bans already in effect inside SEPTA-owned vehicles, commuter rails and transit stations and terminals, except in areas where smoking is designated.
