Schoolyard Revitalization

The Adaire Schoolyard Revitalization Project is the effort to transform the schoolyard of the Alexander Adaire K-8 Public School at Thompson and Palmer in Fishtown, Philadelphia, PA, from an asphalt expanse to something much more. Friends of Adaire is THRILLED to celebrate the realization of this long-held dream, with the first phase of the new schoolyard opening Sept. 29, 2017. The Schoolyard Revitalization is now in Phase II and accepting community member suggestions on which areas of Adaire's outdoor facilities to focus on next!

The Adaire Chess Club, founded and run by Friends of Adaire board member Stefan Zajic, meets Mondays after school. Each week, 15-30 students of all grades meet to play chess, solve puzzles, learn tactics & strategy, and have fun. In 2017-2018 school year, the Adaire Chess Club celebrated many team successes, including finishing sixth in the city-wide elementary school league, making the playoffs in their debut year. One of our players was awarded city-wide Top Female Player, Elementary School league, and in the Checkmate Violence tournament at Temple University in January, a third grade player placed 3rd among all K-3 players, city-wide.

In 2018-2019, the Annual Fund Campaign funded a PlayWorks coach for recess monitoring and organized play activities every day of the week. Research shows that regular and targeted play is a critical part of every student's success and funding a PlayWorks coach also frees up our Principal and other teachers and administrators to focus on their other planning and teaching responsibilities enriching our students' educational opportunities.

The FoA 2019-20 Annual Fund Campaign theme is to support Science, Technology, Recess, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics ("STREAM") initiatives at the school.
