On December 7th, our students unveiled The Changing of the Ginkgo. A mural inspired by the oldest tree on the continent, the Ginkgo tree, located at Bartram’s Garden. 
Students, parents and staff members gathered in the lobby at RAPCS to celebrate the student's hard work & creativity. During the ceremony, Amy Henderson, RAPCS Art Teacher, addressed the students & staff with a thoughtful remark. The attendees also heard from students Asia Parks and Amir Saulsberry. 

RAPCS would like to thank Mural Arts Philadelphia for working with our students. This has been another successful and amazing collaboration project.  We are all happy to have you all a part of the RACPS family and hope to continue to work with you in the future. As always. thank you to the parents and staff members for supporting our students.

Peer Mediators 

The RAPCS Peer Mediator program is a facilitated deliberation that helps students in conflict resolve their disputes and create their own solutions, using shared problem-solving techniques within the school environment. Our mediators have had over 20 years of training before they serve as natural, third-parties to help students reach a fair and agreement to the conflict. In addition, they are expected to complete another 12 hour/year of continuing education hours.
