Metro Philly Spotlight
Revolution School received a spotlight in the Metro Philadelphia Education Power Players. We are delighted to be recognized for our work in creating greater access to quality education, fostering collaboration between schools and communities, supporting the long-term success of all students, and ensuring that every student is learning.
Dorothy Dulo and Roger Godsprey joined us last week to cook a Kenyan feast. Dorothy and Roger own Rafiki Shoppe in Lancaster which raises money for a school they founded in Kenya. They spoke with the students about the struggles people in eastern Africa face to get an education. Much of the discussion tied directly to the 11th and 12th grade global history curriculum which focused on colonization and its legacy. Dorothy explained that some of the foods we ate together such as kale are rooted in British colonization of Kenya. Revolution students were also interested in the missions of Rafiki to use food as friendship, opportunity, and charity. See Rafiki Shoppe for more.

College Financial Planning with Smarttrack
To assist our 9th, 10th, and 11th grade families with the financial piece of college planning, we are partnering with Smarttrack®. If you’re concerned that you don’t have an effective plan to cover the considerable costs of educating all your children, Smarttrack’s College Funding High School Initiative can help. We encourage parents of 9th, 10th and 11th graders to attend a timely webinar, “What Parents Need to Know Now about Paying Less for College” on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, 7:00pm. This webinar is designed to help families start thinking strategically about how you’ll cover and reduce your share of future college costs. Pre-registration is required. Parents of seniors may attend, but this is geared toward parents of younger students.
