FCS Schools Featured in Metro RESA PBIS Showcase
Creek View Elementary School, Langston Hughes High School, and Renaissance Middle School were featured in the first-ever Metro RESA PBIS Showcase in March.
Sponsored by the Metropolitan Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA), an agency that provides services to Georgia school districts, Positive Intervention Behavior Supports (PBIS) help schools support students who are having issues with discipline. The key is to keep students in class, rather than suspend them, by addressing the roots of their behavior issues.
“Metro RESA was pleased to partner with Fulton County Schools for our first-ever PBIS Showcase,” said Michelle Sandrock, school climate specialist with Metro RESA. “The three schools represent model PBIS schools across the state who are not only implementing PBIS with a high level of fidelity but are sustaining it. We appreciated their willingness to serve as demonstration sites by hosting school leaders across metro Atlanta.”
More than 100 PBIS team members from seven metropolitan Atlanta school districts and two guests from Hong Kong attended the event.
Pain 2 Wellness Doctors Provide Training and Receive a Proclamation
Drs. Winston and Chantaye Carhee of Pain 2 Wellness Center donated CPR training/practice manikins to support the city’s Fire Department training initiatives, and the Pain 2 Wellness Center, located at 3910 Cascade Road S.W., in Atlanta (right here in our district), received a Proclamation at the February 26th City of South Fulton Council Meeting.
Through their AAA Foundation, the Carhees are donating Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training and practice manikins to be used for “in-service training” to keep skills current among fire personnel and to support the Fire Department’s public education training programs to include offering CPR certification classes.
The Mayor and City Council of the City of South Fulton thanked the doctors for their support of the Fire Department and their commitment to give back to the community to ensure residents are equipped with life-saving skills, proclaiming Tuesday, February 26, 2019, as Dr. Winston and Dr. Chantaye Carhee Appreciation Day in the City of South Fulton.
Publix Shoppers Support Christian City Children’s Village
Shoppers and associates at Publix stores in metro Atlanta’s southern crescent generously donated $30,219.59 to Christian City Children’s Village during the annual “Food For All” campaign in October and November 2018. “Give Hope” themed boards were displayed at register areas, where Publix customers and associates supported the campaign with $1, $3, or $5 donations.
More than $1.4 million was distributed by Publix Super Markets, Inc. to 69 nonprofit organizations in Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee. Marc Pater, Customer Service Manager, and Lauren Ledbetter, Assistant Customer Service Manager, at Publix-Tyrone presented the donation check to Christian City Children’s Village in March 2019.
Christian City, located in Union City, between Fairburn and Fayetteville, cares for children of abuse and abandonment through its Children’s Village Residential Program, Safe Place Runaway & Homeless Youth Program, Crossroads Foster Care & Adoption Program, and Thrive Graduate Transition Program.
The program’s positive impact is demonstrated by an ongoing 100% high school graduation rate among high school seniors at the Christian City Children’s Village. LaVann Landrum, Chief Development Officer, thanked Publix.
