Welcome back to all Students, Parents and Guardians,
We are looking forward to a wonderful and exciting 2017-2018 school year at Rhawnhurst!
Rhawnhurst Elementary is located at 7809 Castor Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia.
We are a Kindergarten through Grade 5 School with a current enrollment of 578 students. This includes an early childhood component—“Bright Futures Class”. Our students represent a diverse range of nationalities and speak over 27 languages.
Along with the teachers and staff, I pledge to:
Promote parent involvement and active, ongoing home/school outreach
Providing rigorous instruction that will ensure high student achievement and proficiency in all content areas
Promote a positive, nurturing, and caring environment where all students can learn and perform at their best level
Provide a safe learning environment for all students
This year we are trying to reduce our use of paper to conserve the environment. We encourage you to return to our website and to learn more about the Rhawnhurst School community. Our website is updated often.
Don’t forget to check the Yellow Communication Folder daily for up to date news and events!
