John Butler, a local author, who has also taught at Belmont Charter visited our students as part of our after school program to read his newly released book “Chase Does it All.”  As someone who was raised and lives in Philadelphia, John provides inspiration for our students through his new book and as a personal role model for our students.  His visit also falls directly in line with our efforts to promote enthusiasm for reading both during the school day and during our extended learning period after school.  We appreciate him taking the time out of his schedule to support our students and for the Philly Tribune for covering the entire experience.
