Bulldog Spotlight of the Week
image0 _7_.jpeg

Steven Wacker


Steven Wacker is currently a second grade student at New Foundations. He is always eager to learn more both in and out of the classroom.


His class learned all about Philadelphia and what an important role our city played in our history when they finished reading the Magic Treehouse Series book about George Washington and the Revolutionary War. Afterwards, Steven asked his family to take him to see the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and other historical sites. Steven actually sat at the desk that once was occupied by George Washington and other famous leaders. He shared the pictures with his class and now they all want to do the same!


Join us in celebrating Steven for being an outstanding member of our community!

We want to hear from you!
