Hear the Music at a Philly Public School

With all the changes occurring in the district combined with the negative press, I bring you a positive story!   

A group of parents, teachers, administration and community members are coming together to form The Friends of J.S. Jenks (FOJSJ) an independent fundraising organization for our school (John Story Jenks Elementary School in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia).  

Even though organizing a new group is time consuming and slow and at times frustrating; these types of actions and energy are needed.  We invite all supporters of Public Education to join us at our kick-off fundraiser.  

Let There Be Music!
