ECS receives national recognition
Evangelical Christian School (ECS) recently announced its achievement of Exemplary School Accreditation from the Association of Christian Schools International – an honor bestowed upon only 11 of more than 3,300 ACSI-member schools in the nation.
“It shows that we are a vibrant, healthy school that will continue to influence the community for years to come,” says Gay Edge, academic dean at ECS.
ECS underwent a rigorous application and examination process to demonstrate highly successful operations in areas of board governance, executive leadership, school viability, student learning, spiritual formation, and school culture.
A Family Affair at Memphis Preschool
Perea Preschool in Memphis is now home to a new parent counseling service. The ACE Awareness Foundation has opened its third Universal Parenting Place (UPP) at 1250 Vollintine Avenue. This is an innovative Memphis-based family service that provides free resources for parents who want to safeguard their family’s emotional well-being.
UPP sites are dedicated to delivering practical information, guidance, and emotional support for family-related issues or concerns, no matter how large or small. In addition to one-on-one parenting counseling, a sampling of events that are available include: daily meditations; yoga for adults; Mommy, Daddy, baby, and family yoga; Playback Memphis; drumming with Ekpe; and Music for Aardvarks.
Additional UPP sites are available in Shelby County through founding partners Baptist Memorial Hospital for Women at 6225 Humphreys and Knowledge Quest at 990 College Park Drive. Future UPP sites are planned for later this year.
