This Wednesday evening April 27, I will be at Congregation Rodeph Shalom hosting a meetup for families of young children in Center City/Fairmount who are embarking on the elementary school search. Come, enjoy some pizza, learn a little bit about the process of choosing a school in Philly, and meet other parents in the same boat. Please join us–RSVP Via Facebook is welcome to help us plan but not required! More information below.

- Dinner: Pizza and salad will be served
- Description: Public, private, or charter? City or suburbs? What are my chances of a charter school? What should I look for when I visit a school? Len Lipkin, founder of the blog and information website PhillySchoolSearch.com, will lead a discussion with parents of young children on the topic of identifying, visiting, evaluating, applying for, and ultimately choosing a school for your child. Although the presentation will focus on schools in general, Rabbi Jill Maderer will also briefly discuss the school search in a Jewish context and the role of Jewish identity in your school choice.
