    Pools, frozen treats and the Shore: Guide to coping with Philly's heat and humidity
    The Philadelphia region is getting a taste of dangerous summer heat - but there are plenty of ways to stay cool. A combination of high temperatures and humidity made it feel hotter than 100 degrees Monday. While relief may be on the way, the dog days of summer are nowhere near over.

  • Bethel Baptist Academy reviewed by a parent

    This is truly a dream school! They are teaching my son more than I could have imagined. His spiritual, academic, and physical education are all important and they give him a better education than I could have ever hoping for in a public or charter school. They treat a child like family and show them love and respect with everything they do. I'm so grateful to have a safe and loving place for my son to learn and grow.
