G.W. Childs Elementary School

Message from the Principal

Dear Childs Community,

As the principal of this great school, I can guarantee your children will receive a first class education! Our teachers are dedicated to making sure every child reaches his or her potential. They are devoted to the children and work hard to assure that every child feels loved and safe. We make sure that our students are “On time, on task, and on a mission!”

We offer special programs, such as after school tutoring, ST Math program for grades K-5, mentoring through City Year and Dream Academy, drama club, debate club, and Lego robotics. We have a socialized recess with organized games. We have a full service lunch room with delicious food served daily.

We have a recently formed Home and School Organization that we urge all families to join. We have a School Advisory Council for parents, teachers, and community members to help steer the school towards achieving its educational goals.

Childs Elementary is a jewel in South Philadelphia. It is a place of serious education and a place where people of all cultures are valued and respected.

 

I urge you to come by and visit our school!

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Eileen Coutts, Principal
