Thomas Mifflin School

A Playground for All

Thomas Mifflin School lies in the heart of East Falls. Built in 1935, this historic school has served the neighborhood children for over 80 years and currently educates approximately 320 children. Our dedicated faculty and staff work to engage with students and families, often sacrificing their time and money beyond the traditional school day to provide for their students, some of who need more resource and support to succeed.
One giant resource that we haven’t been able to provide our students is a playground. Currently our students play on hot asphalt without shade or structure. Our students deserve a playground.

A playground will afford our students the opportunity to expel suppressed anxious energy; to reflect upon instructional experiences; to acquire, develop, and perfect social emotional skills; and to relax.

Our local neighborhood school group, Friends of Mifflin, has already pledged $10,000 towards this project. In addition, our already dedicated teachers and students plan to raise $5000 through a giant school and neighborhood wide penny drive between now and the end of the school year. Including in-kind support, this gets 25% of the way there already. With your help we’ll be able to provide this much needed resource, not only for our students but the entire neighborhood of East Falls.

iCan learn with iPads

I have the privilege to work in a multiple needs middle school classroom. My students ability levels range. Some students need a nurse or 1:1 assistance to actively participate in the classroom. Due to the needs in my room, special accommodations and materials are needed in order to make them more successful in their everyday lives. My students can make progress, they just need the right tools!

With your support you will help fund 3 iPad Airs and 3 iPad cases for those everyday falls and "oops, I dropped it" moments. The iPads will be used to promote academic learning and functional life skills development. In a typical day, it can be difficult for my students to access books, curriculum and worksheets. With the support of classroom iPads, my students will be able to participate in the classroom with more confidence! Thank you!

Beautification of the Theater

Our theater is the hub of all the programming that we do at CAPA.  In addition, it is used by community organizations for meetings and town halls.  It has not been ungraded in over 20 years.   This money would  be used to make cosmetic improvements to provide new carpet in the theater, as well as motorized curtains and new seating. 

Currently the carpet is being held down by duck tape in certain areas to prevent people from tripping over tears in the carpet, which is a safety hazard. Seats are broken, and need to be taped off, and the curtains do not work at all.  

Thank you!
