(Philadelphia - September 25, 2011)
Camelot Excel Academy students surround State Senator Christine Tartaglione after preparing the school's gym to host last week's Senior Expo. Twenty five students set up tables and exhibits for the expo, then stayed to help the seniors and serve lunch. According to the school, opportunities like these provide students with a way to learn how to give back to the community. The students also regularly patrol the surrounding neighborhood to keep it free of trash. Excel Academy serves students who have fallen at least two years behind in their studies.
