 Mayoral candidate Rebecca Rhynhart visits Revolution School!

What We’re…

🏈  Preparing: Revolution School will be closed in the event of a post Super Bowl victory parade (TBD) as we will be in the center of the celebration! This will help us avoid complications due to SEPTA transportation shifts and allow us to tap into the civic pride that will abound in our region if the Eagles win. School will be open per usual on Monday, February 13. Go Eagles!

💚  Celebrating: We have raised $324,697 toward our goal of $1 million. Help support Revolution School as a donor and a fundraiser. Please share the link to our giving page or sign up to become a fundraiser for our school. Simply set your own goal and share your personalized fundraising page with friends and family!

💝  Sharing: We invite all students and the REV team to bring a photo you love for the photo board. Please bring your photo in on Monday as we prepare for Valentine’s Day!

2023-2024 Re-enrollment Agreements: Re-enrollment agreements for students in grades 9-11 have been sent out via TADS. Please check your email and reach out to Justine with any questions. To guarantee your student’s space for next year, please return your agreement by March 31, 2023.

Attention Senior Families: A small group of students and families joined us this week to begin planning Revolution culminating activities for the Class of 2023. If you didn’t get a chance to attend, we want to hear from you! Please contribute your ideas here

ASSET is for everyone: We continue to encourage students to take advantage of ASSET, Mondays-Wednesdays from 3:30-5:00 pm. In addition, all Revolution teachers and staff will post office hours for assistance during break and/or study groups.

Sneakers for Wellness: Students must come prepared with sneakers for Wellness on Mondays and Wednesdays to comply with the rules at Planet Fitness. Students who do not bring sneakers may not do their workout and will need to stay at school during that class time.
