Cascade Elementary School recently recently acquired a new partner in Paradise Community Development Corporation (PCDC), located in Forest Park, Georgia. According to the TalkUp APS Blog, "through strategic programming that aids in the development of the whole being, the PCDC seeks to foster renewal & success in the life of every man, woman, and child it encounters within the community."
Newly appointed Principal of Cascade Elementary, Dr. Sylvia R Hall, has implemented a new quest for Cascade Elementary to establish effective community partnerships. According to Dr. Hall, increasingly, it is evident that schools, families, and communities should work closely with one another to meet their mutual goals.
“Schools are located in communities, but often are islands with no bridges to the mainland,” she explained. “Families live in neighborhoods, often with little connection to each other or to the schools their youngsters attend. Neighborhood entities such as agencies, youth groups, and businesses have major stakes in the community.”
Based upon this premise, Cascade Elementary staff and students are honored to be a partner with the Paradise Community Development Corporation.
