The Philadelphia Public School Notebook’s annual “Turning the Page for Change” celebration is less than a week away. The annual fundraiser will be held from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7, at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
More than 400 public school supporters are expected to gather in celebration at the end of the school year. Parents, educators, elected officials, and business leaders who rely on the Notebook’s independent voice and advocacy on behalf of Philadelphia’s public schools come together to honor the nonprofit news organization and highlight the top high school journalists in the city. Tickets are for sale online and will be available at the door.
This festive event features awards for outstanding high school journalism, a silent auction, talented local musicians, and the opportunity to speak with the most influential voices in the local education community.
At this year’s event, the Notebook will honor researcher and educator Jolley Bruce Christman for her incredible impact in the local education community and at the Notebook. Christman co-founded Research for Action, a nationally respected education research organization in Philadelphia, and is a longtime supporter, expert source and board member at the Notebook.
The annual event is the Notebook’s largest fundraiser of the year and supports the organization’s education reporting online and in print.
