Letter of Invitation to Superintendent's Parent Roundtables Meeting II

Dear Parents,

Thank you for attending our very successful 1st monthly Superintendent's Parent Roundtable on Thursday, November 6, 2008. Over 200 parents attended where they shared their deep insights and feedback regarding various topics.   Accordingly, I am excited to invite you to our 2nd Parent Roundtable on Thursday, December 18, 2008 in the Auditorium, at 440 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, 19130. from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  At our 2nd Roundtable, I will report on the follow- up actions implemented from the recommendations provided on November 6, 2008. Dinner will be served from 5:00 to 5:45 p.m.

I am especially delighted to share that we will also unveil our year round Parent Resource Center located at 440 North Broad. You will also participate in our Strategic Planning Process as we collaborate to increase student achievement.

Please confirm your attendance with Arlenthia Shrieves at ashrieves@philasd.org by Tuesday, December 16, 2008.

I look forward to welcoming you all on Thursday, December 18, 2008 at 6:00 p.m. This is a wonderful School District and I continue to feel privileged to work as your Superintendent. I remain committed to the Core Belief that Parents are our partners in achieving educational excellence, equity and accountability.
