The VIBE and IMAGINE Programs are district-wide initiatives designed to meet the needs of the African American students in the school district. The purpose of the program is to create enthusiasm for academic achievement, to encourage good citizenship, to stimulate a desire to serve others, to promote leadership and develop character. The program at McKinley is a partnership program with Abington Junior High School for African American students of grades 4-6. The sponsors of the program will serve as mentors to McKinley students, in efforts to provide a smooth transition from elementary school to junior high school. The participants in this program will meet after school twice a month. Discussion groups and session will focus on various topics, such as…character and leadership development, citizenship, and cultural awareness through the use of literature, student projects and field trips.
We have wonderful students in our school who will go above and beyond what is necessary to raise money.
Mission 5&2 offers youth sports programs year round that also aims to spread the message of kindness for EVERYONE without judgement. Our 2021 Multi-Sport & Service Summer Camp will teach the kids that acts of service to others can be of all sizes and reach. Each day of the week we will learn how we can serve at home (M), our community (TU), our region (W), our nation (TR), and the world (F). On Friday the kids will complete a Walk for Water to raise funds for Los Pozas!
The Philadelphia Chapter of the Links, Incorporated - International Trends & Services Facet's goal is provide a service-learning opportunity for our partner, Girls, Inc. in order to raise awareness about the global water crisis while taking action to provide funds for a water, sanitation, and hygiene education project for a partner school in the developing world, specifically Africa.
"We at Sacred Heart School live and work to nurture each child through a Christ-filled environment by preparing all to value the quality of life. We strive for religious and academic excellence while we enhance the success of each child both now and for the future." The words above are the Mission Statement for the Sacred Heart of Jesus School in Hanover, Pennsylvania, in the United States of America. More than just words, these sentences embody the guiding principles of the educational experience at Sacred Heart School. We value the importance of this message beyond just our own classrooms, though. Jesus, Himself, said, “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” (Mt 25:35) True to the Gospel message and our Catholic heritage, we strive to extend our spirit of service to those in need to “enhance the success of each child both now and for the future." Please join us in our efforts and prayerfully consider joining Sacred Heart School in our efforts to assist our brothers and sisters in Christ. May God bless you always!
We want to educate the students on water hygiene habits. This education will promote good & safe habits for years to come. It will also encourage a healthy & happy community for generations.
The Social Impact Committee of TU-AMA is dedicated to improving the local and global community that we live in. We participate in various community service projects in Philadelphia and around the world.
We are a Pre-k to 12th grade school. We strive to be a school that educates our girls on sustainable practices and awareness on issues that impact the health and safety of our community and world. Understanding the importance of water as a resource is important. We take it for granted in the Philadelphia region but want our students to know that many parts of the world do not have the abundance we enjoy. Helping another school is important to us. And as a girls school we know that the work of hauling water falls largely on girls and women.
We have developed a year-long, school-wide curriculum about water access. H2O for Life will be bringing Katie Spotz to campus. We want to apply our understanding of global water access to solving this problem in a community in need.
