Testify in Support of the Soda Tax
As you've probably heard, Mayor Kenney has proposed a tax on sugary drinks to fund the expansion of pre-K.  To ensure that City Council approves this tax, community members must voice their support.  There are a number of upcoming budget hearings that provide an opportunity to testify on the benefits of the expanded pre-K that this tax would provide.  If you are interested in testifying, contact Jean Hunt at jeanrowerhunt@comcast.net.  The hearings are on the following dates:
-April 12, 6-8 pm at Concilio
-April 19, 5-7 pm at City Hall
-May 3, 7-9 pm, location TBD
-May 4, 5-7 pm at City Hall

One Book, Every Young Child Workshop - 4/15
The reception with Will Hillenbrand originally scheduled for this date has been cancelled.  However, there will be a professional development workshop for early childhood educators that morning featuring Mr. Hillenbrand as well as writer Julie Dietzel-Glair.  Click here for more details and registration information

Support the Read to Me Storyteller Event
Support early literacy in Philadelphia and inspire the value of reading by participating as a classroom storyteller at the 12th Annual Read to Me Storyteller Event, an initiative of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce.  Tax-deductible reader contributions help provide quality classroom book collections to thousands of students as part of this year-long initiative to encourage them to read with their parents, caregivers, or teachers.  Learn more here
