Support a fellow Penn alum with a hands-on opportunity to participate in the rebuilding of the New Orleans public schools. Last year, Schaumburg Elementary was the second-lowest performing elementary school in New Orleans, but ReNEW Charter Management Organization (“ReNEW Schools”) and new Upper Elementary School Leader Shira Bergman-Cohen (Penn '06) are taking over Schaumburg in an effort to turn it around.
Please join the Penn Club in assisting Shira to get Schaumburg ready for a strong, positive start to the school year by volunteering from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 13, at the school in New Orleans East, located at 9501 Grant St, New Orleans, LA 70127. Volunteers will be painting, organizing supplies, cleaning up classroom libraries, gardening and /or assisting classroom teachers in getting rooms ready for their students.
Lunch will be provided.
