Many Thanks

As the year comes to a close, we wanted to thank you for all we have accomplished together in 2012. This year, we’ve seen the collective power of coalescing around a common vision for our city. Together, we’ve achieved much more than we ever could alone. Just consider:

Our collective impact is so much greater when we set differences aside in the interest of what’s best for our city’s students, as is demonstrated in these results. Over this past week, we were reminded that everyone involved in this work has far more in common than not, and we all care deeply for the youngest in our communities. We are incredibly grateful for all the people – the students, parents, teachers, administrators, advocates, policymakers, and more –  who have worked to make our schools higher quality learning environments for many years.

Finally, if in a position to do so, we ask that you remember PSP in your end of year giving. There are opportunities to invest at all levels in many different critical areas that support our common goal.  Please contact us to make a contribution by December 31.

We anticipate an exciting year ahead, and look forward to working with you in 2013 to ensure every child in every neighborhood in Philadelphia has the opportunity to attend a great school. We wish you a healthy and happy holiday season and new year!
