Dear Students and Parents of incoming 9th graders:
Congratulations on your acceptance to The Arts Academy at Benjamin Rush. We have had a successful three years, and we anticipate even greater success as our class of 2015 enters in September. The Arts Academy at Benjamin Rush, nicknamed, Rush Arts, thanks you for your interest and patience.
Please note the important information regarding our summer Student Institute and assessment week, before the school year officially begins.
The Arts Academy school colors are purple and black – and our mascot is the Knight. Students should take pride in their appearance and dress in a manner exhibiting good taste at all times. All clothing should be appropriate for learning. School logo wear and the colors of purple and black are encouraged.
We also want to remind parents to please drop off and pick up children in the South lot, closer to Fitzpatrick Elementary School. Knights Road is a dangerous road due to the speeding cars.. We are also urging children to not cross the intersection in the middle of the street to catch SEPTA. Children must cross at the corner lights. We will discuss this further with your child if he/she catches the bus.
Again, if you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact the school at 215-281-2603. Have a great summer.
Jessica M. Brown
