​Thank you to all our supporters, Congresswomen Karen Bass, Mr. Von Middleton,  Ms. Bettye "Scottye" Price and Ms. Cheyenne Simms for allowing the 5th grade students from 54th Street Elementary School to have an memorable culmination trip.  Our students were able to experience how the government operates in Washington DC from the Staff of Congresswomen Karen Bass.  The history and the culture of Philadelphia from the Liberty Bell  to eating Philly Cheese Steaks.  lastly experience the energy and culture of New York City.   Going to Harlem, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.  The night life of New York City and lastly experiencing a Broadway play, Aladdin.   Because of your support, this experience was filled with great moments which have become lifetime memories.  Thank you again for your support, we are making a difference in the lives of the students and families we serve.​

54th Street Elementrary School  Culmination trip to Washington, Philidelphia,

and New York City

Academically, through our enrichment programs, we are able to reach every student at this school.  Our goal is to create an atmosphere that triggers an emotional interest in school where children want to thrive academically and socially.
Our students are growing because of the support they receive. We believe this quote to be true from:
 "It's relationships, not programs that change children.... Young people thrive when adults care about them on a one-to-one level, and when they have a sense of belonging to a caring community." -Bill Milliken, CISSA

-Derek and Stephanie Richardson
