Message from the Principal
To Our Cook-Wiss Families,
"Summer is here! We've all worked very hard to make sure our students are successful in reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, science, the arts, and physical education. They have also had many opportunities to experience great events, field trips, and even become socially aware about local politics. Now it is time to rest, play, and dream, but be sure your children spend time reading, writing, and practicing mathematics, too. Visit the wealth of parks, museums, and recreational facilities in Philadelphia to keep learning part of the fun.
Our summer enrichment and reading information by grade level was sent home with each student so that they can keep their skills fresh as they prepare for next fall and the return to school. This website includes those items by grade level. Simply click on the link below for your child's grade and download the information to learn about your teachers for next year, your summer reading list, project requirements, mathematics practice, and more!
Have a wonderful time this summer. We look forward to seeing you again in the fall!"

We are excited to be a part of the "Philadelphia Campaign for Healthier Schools" again this year, working together to decrease the unhealthy foods in our school, promote healthier food choices, and to increase physical activity and exercise.
To reach our goals we need your support!
1. Healthy Snacks: If you pack snacks and drinks for your child, please pack healthy ones. If your child buys snacks at the corner store, talk about making healthier choices. Healthy choices are: fruits and vegetables, whole grain crackers, granola bars, low-fat string cheese, low-fat yogurt. Healthy Drinks: water, low-fat milk, 100% fruit juice.
3. Healthy Classroom Celebrations: If you would like to bring in a treat for your child's birthday or classroom party, please make it healthy. Healthy Treats: fruit salad, vegetables and dressing, juice, popcorn. Non-Food Treats: Fun games to play, small prizes (pencils, erasers, stickers), a movie or book for the classroom.
We welcome your ideas to help us become a healthier school. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact the office to join our school's Wellness Council.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to a healthy school year!
