The Partnership of Atlanta joined with Cobb County Schools to become a Partner in Education with LaBelle Elementary School, which is in Smyrna, Ga. Amanda Lucey, CEO of The Partnership, presented the school with a check for $1,000.
The administration is excited to use the funds to provide teacher and student incentives in recognition of the hard work that is shown each day. Additionally, by providing student incentives, the administration is hoping to see an increase in student achievement as students work toward meeting their math and reading goals.
“There are always needs within a Title 1 School, so any support is greatly appreciated,” commented Paul Watson, Principal LaBelle Elementary School.
LaBelle is a Title 1 Arts Integration School, meaning they receive federal funds for low-income students to ensure they receive the necessary funds for their education. LaBelle consists of 410 students and about 70 teachers and staff members. Of the 410 students, 70% are Hispanic and about 30% are African American.
“We are excited to give back locally to a school that is so close to us. Being a member of the Cobb Chamber is opening so many doors for us to do community outreach and promote student success in Cobb County,” said Lucey.
Lucey acquired The Partnership in 2018 and has made strides in making an impact in the local community while also serving local, national and global brands in supporting them with branding, marketing and PR initiatives. The firm is one of Atlanta’s top 25 agencies and strives to not only provide top quality services to its clients but also give back through various volunteer and giving efforts.
