Monthly Classroom Project: South Philadelphia High School

This week, Little Known Help Zone was thrilled to visit another school for the monthly classroom project in Philadelphia, the South Philadelphia High School.

Located on Broad Street, this school is beautiful and noticeable with the gorgeous murals outside. They are diverse, bright, and inviting. Once inside, there are still more murals and art pieces decorating the halls.

I donated art supplies to the art teacher, as well as a ton of classroom and plant supplies to the ecology teacher.

I also got to see some of the school and learn about their student body. What used to be one of the largest high schools in Philadelphia now has 600 students, 50% as ESL students and Special Ed students.

Thank you to Janelle for arranging this!

Yesterday, Little Known Help Zone donated to three classrooms at Ludlow Elementary school in Philadelphia!

We donated to a 2nd grade classroom, 5th grade classroom, and 7th grade classroom, giving 80 students the gift of school supplies for the end of the semester!

This included cleaning supplies, notebooks, paper, paints, puzzles, and more essential needs for the classroom!

Thank you to Ludlow for hosting me, and we were so happy to donate to your school!

Ludlow Elementary Classroom Visit

Right before Spring Break, Little Known Help Zone will be donating to Ludlow Elementary school as part of our monthly classroom project. This has been in motion since March, for our March school, and is finally coming to fruition this April.

Ludlow is located in Old Kensington, Philadelphia, and is a Philadelphia School District Public School. Ludlower serves approximately 400 students in grades Pre-K through 8th grade.  Seventy two percent of Ludlow students are African American, twenty one percent are Latino, two percent is Asian, one percent Caucasian, and four percent are multicultural. Twenty seven percent of our students receive special education services.

This was a great school for LKHZ, and we are donating to not 1, but three classrooms! This includes a 5th grade, 3rd grade, and 2nd grade class! Some items include pencils, notebooks, craft supplies, and cleaning supplies. These are essential for the school’s success, and many people often forget that even near the end of the year, classroom supplies is needed.

Stay tuned for photos and information about the visit next week!

At Little Known Help Zone, we believe in shooting for the stars. That’s why each supplies kit we donate includes personalized items for the children to be empowered in their education and reach success. The new Shoot for the Stars bracelet il_794xN.1806968478_pby4.jpgon the Etsy shop reminds everyone to do just that; embrace their potential for success. In addition to that, it raises money for our monthly classroom project!

This handmade piece is a mixed metal chain bracelet with silver star beads and a lobster clasp. The dangle is delicate and light, and the stars shine.

So head to the etsy shop and do some shopping.

Monthly Classroom Project Visits- January and February

Sometimes, the weather just gets int he way of plans, which is why this Friday was a monthly classroom project visit extravaganza, going to two schools, seven classrooms, and bringing over $500 worth of supplies and 130 Valentines!

First on the agenda was Mosser Elementary School in Allentown, PA. This was on the East Side of Allentown, and I donated to 4 different classrooms. This included a first grade room, kindergarten class, and 2 learning support classes. This was all new teachers, and was a great visit. They all also got a copy of Color Creates a Brighter Future.

Then, I went to Central Elementary School in Allentown, and donated to three more classrooms in first, third, and fourth grade!

This was a wonderful trip, and everyone loved the supplies and the fun themed Valentines.
