CAP Day at the Phillies

We are thrilled to announce the upcoming school-wide event, CAP Day at The Phillies, taking place on Saturday, June 1, 2024, at Citizens Bank Park for the Phillies game against the Cardinals. CAP will be recognized as a group by the Phillies, there is also a giveaway for children 14 and under to win a ride on the London Bus Tour the following weekend. We ask all faculty and staff to wear their CAP gear to the game and for you to ask your family and friends to wear blue. This event is a wonderful opportunity for students, faculty, and parents to come together as a community to celebrate our school spirit and engage in a day of fun at the ballpark.
