One day, we'll look back at 2013 as a turning point. With an engaged community and a new plan for our schools built with public priorities, there is an enormous amount of positive momentum for public education in Duval County. THIS is our time. And none of it would be possible without the hard work of thousands of ONE by ONE participants, delegates and advocates.
To celebrate this moment, we hope you will join us on Saturday, June 1 at Metropolitan Park for the P.E.P. Rally for Excellence.
This mega-event is being sponsored by public education advocates from all over our city. Led by Duval County Public Schools, WJCT and the Jacksonville Public Education Fund, the Public Education Partners (P.E.P.) Rally for Excellence will bring together parents, students, teachers and citizens from throughout the community for a family-friendly day of activities, including:
• Annual Reading Celebration
• Family-Friendly Activities, Entertainment & Prizes
• Student Recognition & Performances
• Citizen Engagement Opportunities
• Teachers' Appreciation & VIP Lounge
Mark your calendars for 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 1 and join us at Metropolitan Park for an unforgettable public education celebration!
