See im­age gal­lery at right for ad­di­tion­al photo.

Proud stu­dents in grades 5 through 8 (at right in im­age gal­lery) at the Mem­ph­is Street Academy Charter School at J.P. Jones re­ceived their first uni­form blazers and com­mem­or­ative pins at form­al pin­ning ce­re­mon­ies on Dec. 5 and 6. The school was taken over by edu­ca­tion man­age­ment or­gan­iz­a­tion Amer­ic­an Paradigm Schools earli­er this year. Amer­ic­an Paradigm was charged with turn­ing around the formerly troubled J.P. Jones Middle School.

Mem­ph­is Street Academy stu­dents also dis­played their art­work Dec. 7 at an art show­ing in Old City (above). The Phil­adelphia artist Perry Mi­l­ou was the fea­tured artist, and the chil­dren cre­ated works spe­cific­ally for the show. Pic­tured from left to right are: An­thony Dav­alos, Nef­fera Hart, Bahiyah Ware and Cam­ron Write.
