On August 27, volunteers from the College were at Spring Garden School, an K-8 school in the College’s neighborhood, to cheer on students for their first day of school. Community College of Philadelphia adopted Spring Garden School this year as part of the School District of Philadelphia's Adopt-a-School program. Members of the College’s International Student Association and the Institute for Community Engagement and Civic Leadership operated a table outside of the school starting at 7:30 a.m., handing out coffee, doughnuts — and information about the College's programs.
To help kickoff the College’s adoption of Spring Garden School, students, faculty and staff worked side by side on August 14 and 15 to fill close to 200 backpacks with school supplies, and to create cards with messages of encouragement. The backpacks are being distributed to Spring Garden School students who need them on the first day of school, Aug. 27, where volunteers from the College will be there to greet them. The unused backpacks will be donated to students in Western Region Nigeria and to local students as needed.
Staff came together again on August 6 to network and brainstorm how to move the College's student experience from good to great.
