Great job to all of the Language and Literature students who gave their persuasive speeches this week! Some of the topics that students focused on were excess screen time, overconsumption/fast fashion, financial education, fair college admissions, alcohol recovery treatment, time off, age-appropriate media, workplace experiences of women of color, embracing therapy, healthcare affordability, student loans, the cost of decent education in Philadelphia, and anti-Blackness in healthcare.

Congrats to this month’s Beable winner, Camille Smith, who won a $20 Barnes & Noble gift card for reading the most and scoring the highest on the articles she read! Beable is a program that challenges teens to improve their literacy skills, while connecting them to what matters most (personal interests and career aspirations). Great work, Cami — and her sidekick, Camelle!

Revolution Spirit Week was certainly spirited, with Emo Day, Twin Day, Throwback Day, Dress Like a Teacher/Student Day, Character/Celebrity Day, and Pajama Day!

Pre-college summer opportunities with financial aid!


The Coalition for College works to expand college access to communities that have been historically under-represented. This list of affordable summer programs at colleges and universities is very helpful. Participating in a pre-college summer program is a great way to further explore your interests, get a taste of what it is like to be a college student, visit a college campus, and even boost your academic profile.

Grades 9 and 10

Our Environmental Science students went to visit The Discovery Center where they got to do water testing and observe the growing mussels in the reservoir which will eventually be reintroduced to the Schuylkill River. Earlier this quarter, students got to see where the mussels were hatched when visiting Fairmount Water Works.

Grades 11 and 12

Our students visited the Pennsylvania Prison Society, located on the 6th floor of our building! Student learned about the importance of prison reform and the advocacy work this organization is doing to improve the conditions of the incarceration system in Pennsylvania.

I Wish to Say…

Building on their own ideas of what they’d like to express to the next President, students interviewed performance attendees at the Kimmel Center this Friday afternoon and recording responses using classic typewriters. The collection of ideas will be displayed later this year.
