About this Campaign
L.W.Waring is a school that prioritizes trauma informed practices to create equitable opportunities and resources for our students and families. We service families from K-8 who are homeless or once experienced homelessness and Autistic Support students in grades K-8 in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia. Our mission, the reason why we exist, is to cultivate the intellect, foster the character and ignite the imaginations of our students in preparation for a successful high school experience.
Our goals are to:
- Provide PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) through an equity lens, practicing restorative justice strategies to keep students engage with our school family. Specifically, with funds raised, professional development, training and workshops will be held for students, families and staff.
- Provide incentives to motivate and reward families and staff members for their "HEART Work" of progressing and achieving academically, behaviorally and social emotionally. This includes purchasing items for our school economy for student to purchase items earned with their dojo points or Waring's Eagle Bucks. This also includes incentivizing staff and parents for their efforts as well with items such as gift cards, food, books, and learning experiences such as workshops and conferences that focuses on student learning, behavior and social-emotional needs.
- Provide Interventions that will help to remove barriers to learning, attending school and social-emotional and mental health. These interventions will include but is not limited to transportation, funding for workshops, trainings and conferences for students, families and staff as well as resources that will be used to create an environment conducive to learning and welcoming to students, staff and families. Extended learning experiences such as cultural excursions and trips to museums will also be provided.
