Notes from the news - Dec. 23

The latest headlines in Philly education




The Notebook has exciting news! The Knight Foundation will match your donations (up to $1,000 per individual)! Donate online or by mail.

Knight will match contributions for the next month up to $25,000 total. We are one of 57 news organizations across the country to receive this grant. This $25,000 matching grant will make a huge impact - more than doubling our usual year-end campaign total, and giving us a boost as we ramp up our daily news coverage in the new year.

Thank you to the Knight Foundation and to all our readers for your support!

Holiday break

The Notebook will be closed from Dec. 24 through Jan. 2, 2017.  You can still make online donations during this period and email us with story tips. We will return all messages when we get back to work.

Happy holidays from the Notebook!
