Application season is here! Families are actively preparing for next year and beyond. We encourage students and families to attend the the Philadelphia High School Expo this Friday and Saturday (9/28 and 9/29) at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. This is a great opportunity to learn more about a school you’re already considering or to learn about new schools! There will also be an opportunity to engage with an admissions officer or school representative, which could be a great boost to a student’s application. For perspective families interested in applying to Young Scholars please visit our website (link in bio!) to learn more about our school and apply for next school year. Happy Wednesday! 🍂cc: @greatphillyschools @discover_phl
So far this week... we hosted our first dress down day for students who had no more than one uniform violation. 80% of our student body was eligible to participate! 13 of our students also began a 9 week tutoring program for the SSAT test which is required for applying to private school. 2 students celebrated their birthday. We are a few days away from our first P.R.I.D.E trip. After-school activities are underway. This school year is unfolding wonderfully. 😊
It’s already the last Monday of September! We hope you had an awesome weekend, and that you’re going into school and work this morning feeling refreshed and ready to take on new goals! Let’s close this month out strong. Happy Monday!
Earlier this week we hosted all of our physical education classes in doors. Our scholars played games that not only required physicality but active listening and team work as well. Some students were surprised at how vital each of those elements were to their success in the game. You couldn’t just be fast. 🏃🏾♂️🏃🏽♀️ You couldn’t just listen really well. You had to listen 👂🏽, think, 🧠 and respond strategically to win. From the looks of it each student enjoyed the games, and hopefully they learned a lesson that will last a lifetime. #YoungScholarsStrong #FRIYAY
The look on your face when you’ve been killing it all week, the weekend is almost here, and you know your P.R.I.D.E paycheck will reflect all your hard work... all smiles 😄 Drop a comment below. Let us know something you’re looking forward to!
In the words of educator Ashley McCall, “Having teachers of color allows students to see people who look like them in positions of influence.” So on this #wonderfulwednesday we are celebrating diversity, inclusion, and representation!
We approach every day with the same enthusiasm, the same goal-oriented mindset, and the same Lion PRIDE! Wishing everyone an energetic Tuesday!
We are nearly 3 full weeks into school, and we’re already off to an amazing start! Every year after orientation we invite our scholars to a grade-wide induction ceremony. Our goal is to reiterate the school’s expectations and to further instill Lion P.R.I.D.E. The 40 minute assemblies feature chants, homeroom competitions, and acknowledge high paycheck earners. According to Ms. Smith, our school’s Principal of Operations and Culture, the induction ceremonies are Young Scholars’ special way of echoing the idea that “we are a community. This is what we do, and we’re going to do it together.” #YoungScholarsCharterSchool
