The 19125 Parents Coalition is centered around early childhood from birth through Elementary Schools. There has been a flurry of exciting activity in the last two years, as our parents have started reinvesting in their local public and private Elementary Schools.
Many of the parents involved in the Coalition and its offshoots have long been advocates and caretakers of the neighborhood's parks and playgrounds. The only things our kids love more than their schools are their parks (or do we have this backwards?)!
