Great New to Pass On

Got a good story to tell?  Come to us.

The Translation & Interpretation Center is launching a new feature called “Good News!” designed to showcase stories and visuals from our multicultural/multilingual students and their families.

We are calling on teachers, counselors, principals, BCAs, and other school staff to submit narratives, pictures, videos, and voice recordings about immigrant students’ uplifting stories.  Be it a school award a student received, a particular personal or academic milestone a student achieved that merits recognition, or a demonstration of student’s resilience that others might find inspiring.

Our goal is to present a panorama of the immigrant student experience in Philadelphia public schools by offering a platform for individual edifying stories.  We hope you can help us make this project possible by sending us materials to translation@philasd.org.

Please be aware that we need parents’ consent to publish students’ work.  The link below gives you access to the permission form in all 8 official school languages

We look forward to collaborating with you in this project,

The Translation & Interpretation Center Staff
