Meet our teachers, families, and students - future leaders, technology gurus, educators, engineers, medical professionals, service providers and so much more. Below is a little of the magic we experience. The kind of magic that happens when caring people come together to improve the lives of children, youth and families.
Art in Action
Art is important and offered as enrichment in our K-8 Academy. Since 2015, we have utilized the amazing programs by Art in Action. It has been amazing watching students who demonstrated no interest in art become completely invested in the art lessons after just one session. Below is the 2017-2018 projects completed by the scholars in our College and Career Ready 21st Century Community Learning Center at Kenmoor Middle School.
Media-Smart Youth Presentations
Each year, our awesome scholars at Kenmoor Middle School complete a Media-Smart Youth project. Media-Smart Youth is an engaging curriculum that focuses on building skills in media analysis and media production to help young people ages 11 to 13 understand the complex media world around them and how it can influence their health—especially in regard to nutrition and physical activity. Divided into two teams, below are 2018 Team Physical Activity and Team Nutrition presentations.
Elementary Scholars Getting Physical
Engaging our scholars in yoga has been one of the best things we have done. The students enjoy it (they actually tell their parents about it). Teachers report better behavior and we are over the moon. These are our energetic scholars at William Paca ES.
