PHILADELPHIA PA (December 2018)(CNBNewsnet)--With the holidays underway, and the year coming to a close, it’s the perfect time to look back on some of our favorite moments of the year in the Mayor’s Office of Education, or as we like to call them MOEmoents. Here are 12 of our favorites:

1. This year we welcomed in the new Board of Education. We loved hosting listening tours, attending the first Board meeting, and of course getting to know the Board’s student reps!

2. The first day of school is always one of our favorites! We loved ringing the bell with the District!

3. We love every day we spend with students! School visits are our favorite days!

4. Our PHLpreK celebration day was so much fun! We loved celebrating the start of the new school year (and program expansion) too.

5. We are proud of the resources our Community Schools offer for communities. From clothing closets to adult education classes, and everything in between, these are just a few of our favorite ways we’ve engaged and served communities!

6. Amazing things are possible thanks to our many partners! Here are a few of them that we’re so grateful for.

7. Some of our favorite moments of the year included student opportunities, and growth. We loved seeing our students off to study culinary arts in Florence, Italy for 10 days. We also loved welcoming them back, and seeing the skills that they learned in action!

8. We are proud of the student resources that our schools offer such as Cuts and Curls at Gideon, a sensory room at Gompers, and a Calming Room at Tilden!

9. Volunteering with Philly Reading Coaches is one of our all time favorite activities!
