About this Campaign

Dear Families, Neighbors, and Supporters of Charles W. Henry School,

Did you know that C.W. Henry School expanded their Music program for the 2020-2021 school year? Well, we did and we are in the process of transforming a C.W. Henry classroom into a multi-faceted Dance Studio! Our beloved music teacher Ms. Paulino-Trisdorfer now teaches Dance to all students in grades K-8. Our school deeply believes in a well-rounded school experience that balances academics with the Arts.  We aim to support students' social-emotional growth, their self esteem, and introduce them to new genres of music and dance through our program. 

In order to bring our Dance Studio to life, we're fundraising money to purchase four portable mylar dance mirrors. Mylar dance mirrors (glassless mirrors) are made of a highly reflective, shatter proof material that provides excellent image quality. These glassless mirror panels are made from metallic mirrored mylar plastic film. They give a brighter, sharper reflection than plate glass, with no ghost images. The cost of these mirrors is roughly $3,000 total. Check out an example here: https://www.matsmatsmats.com/ballet-dance/mylar-mirror.html

Your contribution will have an immediate and lasting impact in the lives of students, teachers, and the CW Henry community. Thank you in advance for your generosity! If you have any questions about this project, please reach out to Ms. Paulino-Trisdorfer at nppaulino@philasd.org or Principal Davis at kdavis4@philasd.org

A message from Ms. Paulino-Trisdorfer:


"I'm overwhelmed at the generosity of everyone that donated to our new dance studio. With the new dance mirrors, the students will get a true dance studio experience! Words can't express enough how thankful we are to have the support of the entire city and an appreciation for the arts in the School District of Philadelphia. "
