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.
Picking an Elementary School: Center City/Fairmount Meetup
- Wednesday, October 27, 6:00 pm
- Location: Congregation Rodeph Shalom, 615 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19123, firstname.lastname@example.org • Phone: 215.627.6747
- Cost: $10
- 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.
