Extended Family Network
The partnership between parents, teachers, and students at our school is the foundation that enables each of our young men to be the “architect of his own fortune." We ensure that all members of our school community have a voice in how we evolve as an organization.
The Boys’ Latin of Philadelphia Extended Family Network (EFN), our parent-led organization, provides a forum for families and community members to have a voice in our school. EFN strengthens the network of support for students. It provides programming throughout the year, including: Blazer for My Brother, a speaker series to assist parents in supporting their sons in their personal and academic lives, Family Fun Day, and a teacher appreciation luncheon.
Please see the calendars below for a list of Extended Family Network meetings and events at the middle school and high school.
Per the Uniform Policy, high school students are required to wear a blazer as part of the Winter Uniform beginning the first Monday in October. The Blazer for My Brother program offers assistance to students and families who may not be able to secure their blazers due to financial hardships.
The EFN asks for your assistance in securing gently used blazers from previous students and/or upperclassmen who have outgrown their blazers from previous years. If you would like to donate a gently used blazer, please send it to school with your young man to drop off with Mr. McDaniel in the front office.
If your young man is in need of a blazer, please notify Ms. Sheppard in the front office with their name, grade, and size. We strive to accommodate all requests!
Please note that this program in no way takes the place of the responsibility of the parent to adhere to the uniform policy agreed to upon initial enrollment in Boys’ Latin.
