For the first-time ever, James J. Sullivan School hosted a Winter Festival for its families, providing an opportunity to mingle, win bicycles and receive toys, coats and other warm weather accessories. More than 100 parents were in attendance to celebrate with the school community. The school created this festival to strengthen its partnership with families and provide a fun holiday event for families who may need assistance.
North Philadelphia native and Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) player Kahleah Copper, who is the sister of a Sullivan ELA teacher leader, donated winter gear and attended the event to meet students. Copper current plays for the Chicago Sky and was honored by the Mayor last year for being the WNBA Finals MVP.
