Hi. My name is Kenya Nation-Holmes. Many if you know me as the co-president of FOM, or Jkae & Zach's mom. Today I'm just someone who is very concerned that these wonderful students won't be able to have the send off they deserve. Some of these students have been here for 9yrs(that includes pre-k). Let's give them one more Mifflin memory, before high school. gofundme.com/thomas-mifflin039s-8th-grade-trip.

Ever wonder how fallen trees are cleared from trails? Tree falls are an unfortunate and common occurrence in the Wissahickon, and most park users have seen the impact of large fallen canopy trees throughout the park, which sometimes block the very trail on which they are hiking. What to do? Climb over? Under? Go around? Turn back? Depending on the situation, options can be limited and often hazardous.
Arboretum Cleanup Day at Mifflin School Saturday, April 7, 2018 10 AM to 2 PM Mifflin School Grounds Midvale Avenue, opposite RiteAid The Arboretum is the wooded area of the school grounds along Midvale Avenue. It was created by the WPA during the 1930s, with trees, boulders and paths. For the past 10 years, East Falls Community Council has worked to restore it, removing truckloads of dead branches, invasive plants, and debris. Join us on April 7 as Friends of Mifflin School (an initiative of EFCC) continues this project. We'll provide gloves and tools. The city will send a truck to haul away everything and Brown's ShopRite of Fox Street will donate lunch. Families are welcome!
Join us for this community initiative at our neighborhood school! Bring the whole family, socialize with your neighbors, do some yard works, and enjoy lunch! We can't wait to see you!

On March 26, a male cat turned up on my property (Penn Street, near McMichael Park), no collar, limping and a bit dirty and very hungry - and very friendly. I have taken him to the vet, and he is not microchipped. He is a very patient, friendly boy, neutered, and the vet estimates he is about 5 years old; he weighed a bit over 9 lbs. I believe this cat has an owner who misses him very much. He...
On March 26, a male cat turned up on my property (Penn Street, near McMichael Park), no collar, limping and a bit dirty and very hungry - and very friendly. I have taken him to the vet, and he is not microchipped. He is a very patient, friendly boy, neutered, and the vet estimates he is about 5 years old; he weighed a bit over 9 lbs. I believe this cat has an owner who misses him very much. He is in good health; the limping was from something stuck in his paw, which the vet removed. If you are missing a cat, or your neighbor has been looking for his/her cat, please let me know; and please ask around. (East Falls Townwatch is not happy about posters being put up, so I have limited them to the immediate area.) Thanks!
