this weekend 9/24- movie, festival, museums!
Written By Pam Harris, SCH Academy parent Two communities coming together The start of a new school year has always been an exciting time for me. As a student, it meant a new lunchbox, new binders, new shoes, and new teachers – it meant change and a fresh start. As a parent, it is still an […]
building community at Greene Street Friends School
In case the weather miraculously holds out, the ever-postponed outdoor screening of The Princess Bride will be showing in Friday night at the Lovett Library Garden on 6945 Germantown Ave. Seating starts at 7PM, film begins at 7:30 PM. I know it seems inconceivable that it will be held, so we must get used to […]
for whom does homework work?
Written by: GSFS parent, Debbie Woodward Over the years, when I have talked to people about Greene Street Friends School, I find myself coming back to one characteristic over and over again: the community. In various ways and at various scales, Greene Street fosters a strong community between students, faculty, staff and parents. Greene Street […]
this weekend 9/17… movies, art, scarecrows & a fair!

back to school… are those buses really safe?
Two events this week that might be of interest to NW Philly parents (and parents-to-be)! The first, is a somewhat shameless plug. WHYY is doing a fall parenting series, with the first session is this Tuesday night. The topic? HOMEWORK. Timely, right? (And this is a shameless plug since I am one of the panelists). […]
this weekend 9/3… check out the markets!
It’s here! Or finally here, depending upon your perspective. Many NW Philly kids will don backpacks and plop themselves into those big black school bus seats. For all the time we spend choosing car seats and making sure that they are buckled in safely for each and every trip, it seems grossly counter-intuitive to throw […]
