Princeton Children’s Fund Advances Equity
The Princeton Children’s Fund (PCF) had a busy summer, working in partnership with the Princeton Education Foundation and the Princeton Public Schools (PPS) to advance equity and overcome achievement gaps.
Twenty-five John Witherspoon Middle School (JWMS) students and 17 Princeton High School (PHS) students participated in the PCF’s The Book U Get summer reading book clubs, with more than 460 books making their way into the hands of the student readers. Princeton Public Library hosted both clubs for eight weeks over the summer.
PCF’s Mission to Mars summer science camp took 24 sixth- to tenth-grade students on an imaginary adventure to Mars, including real adventures to iFly Indoor Skydiving, Great Adventure, and Rutgers University, as well as three weeks of hands-on biology, physics, and food science at JWMS. more
