Thursday, May 23, 2019 Day 1

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. And on today is the 143 day of the year. And to honor the late Mister Rogers people in Pennsylvania are being challenged to be a good neighbor today. Governor Tom Wolf has proclaimed it as “1-4-3 Day” and is encouraging everyone to do something kind for someone else in memory of Mister Rogers. Fred Rogers often used “1-4-3” as a way to say “I love you” – referring to the number of letters in each word. So, today, do something kind for your neighbor whether that’s someone in the halls, your classrooms, on the bus, extend a hand and help out! Even the Phillie Phanatic and Pirate Parrot got in on the action…
