The Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) Team at Albert Schweitzer Elementary School received a $3000 grant from the Community Foundations Partnership
, which will be used to continue work on the school's new Parent Resource Center. The grant from the philanthropic grant-making foundation is part of their mission to the behavioral health and human service needs of children and young adults throughout Bucks County. The PBIS team applied for the grant in July and the winners were announced in mid-September.
The Albert Schweitzer Elementary Parent Resource Center is designed to ensure the academic and social-emotional well-being of every student at Albert Schweitzer Elementary by providing a center for accessing programs and help. Excellence in education requires support, sacrifice, and involvement from the total community. People have a responsibility to themselves and others. Valuing the parent's role and responsibility strengthens the school environment. Albert Schweitzer Elementary respects and addresses the needs of the total person. The school is dedicated to enabling students to become accountable, creative, self-aware, and productive citizens who utilize the knowledge, the skills, and the desire for continuous learning, essential elements to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
The Neshaminy community has a proud tradition of integrating its people, its programs, and its resources. This grant furthered that tradition by providing Schweitzer ES parents with the tools they need to support their children as they navigate their way through their school years.
