We began the year rolling out the Blue Carpet for Staff. Check out the clip for Fox 29 HERE.  We were also featured in the Inquirer and on 6 ABC.  We are excited to share the great things to come at Ziegler this year!


Hello Ziegler families!

We look forward to a  new school year, beginning on August 29, 2022. Please remember that your child must bring their District-issued Chromebook to school with them on the first day of school. It is important that Chromebooks be in the building so that they can be used in the classroom. If your child’s Chromebook is lost, stolen, or damaged, please contact the school, so we can be prepared to provide a new one to your child when they return. 

The Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia is accepting applications for their after-school program. The program runs until 5:45 at Ziegler!
