Looking for volunteers to help Notebook at High School Fair

This article was originally published in The Notebook. In August 2020, The Notebook became Chalkbeat Philadelphia.

The Notebook will be at the Pennsylvania Convention Center this weekend when an estimated 8,000 parents and students will flood the venue for the annual High School Fair.

We will be handing out copies of our Fall Guide to High Schools, which contains profiles of 88 high schools, both District and charter. We’re looking for volunteers on Saturday to help us hand out the guides.

If you can volunteer one or more hours between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, please contact Lauren Wiley by email or by phone at 215-839-0082 ext. 106. The Notebook could use your help!

Organized by Great Philly Schools, the event is geared toward students in 7th and 8th grades who are in the process of choosing a high school, as well as current high school students who are considering a transfer.

Representatives from 102 District, charter, and private high schools and eight career and technical education (CTE) schools will be present to answer questions.

The High School Fair will be held Friday, Oct. 16, from 3 to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m in Exhibit Hall G. The closest entrance is near Broad and Race Streets.

For more information about the event, visit the Philly High School Fair website.
