The pain of budget cuts wasn’t as apparent as some had feared at Southwark Elementary, says the South Philly Review, which highlighted the newly formed Team Dragon (named for the school mascot) and its efforts during the first week of school. New principal Andrew Lukov, who we interviewed a couple months back, praised the help he’s gotten from the community, particularly the EPX civic’s volunteers:

“No matter what we would have retained or lost, we still would have needed more,” Lukov, whose building includes art, computer, dance, music and physical education instruction, said of requiring individuals to aid the school’s students, who combined speak 20 languages. “We have to promote a positive climate, and I’m thrilled to have these helpers, whom I see as core resources.”

The civic’s education committee meets tomorrow night, Wednesday Sept. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Neumann-Goretti conference room. Lukov will be there, and you can find more info about the EPX committee on their Facebook page.
