The Choice Bus will be visiting Douglas Byrd Middle School.The Choice Bus is an experience-based learning tool designed to show young people the power of education, as well as the likely consequences of choosing to drop out of school. It contains a full-scale replica of a prison cell to briefly experience the uncomfortable living conditions. As students exit the bus, they receive a pledge card and are asked to make a commitment to finish school and make good choices. 

On October 4, 2017, the Choice Bus will make its way to Douglas Byrd Middle School to give help students understand the importance of staying in school and making good choices.

This visit is made possible by Communities in Schools and the Mattie C. Stewart Foundation.

Check Presentation at Glendale Acres Elementary SchoolThank you to Leonard’s HVAC for a $500 donation to Kirsten Dunlap’s Class at Glendale Acres Elementary School!  Mrs. Dunlap teaches kindergarten and first and second-grade students with autism.  Her students struggle with sensory needs, more specifically they seem to have proprioceptive and vestibular needs.  In order to address these needs, she intends on using the funds to purchase items to address these sensory areas.  Mrs. Dunlap is researching items and prices as well as seeking parent input, for as one knows, it’s best when parents and teachers work together for the success of the student.  We are so grateful to the community support of Leonard’s HVAC!!!
