Atlanta Public Schools (APS) elementary students will soon experience a whole new way of learning, thanks to an innovative literacy initiative being introduced to the school system this summer. Starting this week, APS teachers will receive training in the Orton-Gillingham approach to literacy—a scientifically proven method that uses instruction in sight, hearing, touch and movement to help students connect language with letters and words. The Institute for Multi-Sensory Education (IMSE) will run the training sessions, where teachers will learn how to incorporate this approach into their daily lessons.
Chick-fil-A® announces today a new initiative that will more than double the company’s investment in Team Members’ college educations – providing $4.9 Million in scholarships in 2017 alone, as well as access to tuition discounts and other benefits at more than 70 colleges and universities nationwide. While Chick-fil-A has offered scholarships for more than 40 years, the enhanced initiative, called Remarkable Futures, increases the amount of funding per recipient, allowing students to receive up to $25,000 in scholarships to be applied at any accredited institution of their choice, including online and on-campus formats, and can be combined with tuition discounts and other educational benefits at participating institutions.
It all started in 1973. Based on Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy’s desire to see team members achieve their fullest potential, Chick-fil-A, Inc. began awarding college scholarships to encourage the pursuit of higher education. Through the years, Chick-fil-A, Inc. has awarded approximately $36 million to more than 36,000 team members nationwide. Starting in 2017, Chick-fil-A, Inc. is expanding its educational assistance initiative, known as Remarkable Futures, to provide even greater educational assistance to team members.
If there’s one thing the popsicle craze sweeping the nation has taught us, it’s that we can all master the art of making (and enjoying) popsicles with the right ingredients. Luisa Hammett, a registered dietician and the lifestyle blogger behind Peaches to Pearls, offers a “better option for a summertime treat” with her Summer Peach Popsicle recipe. You can feel good about the fact that it’s packed with vitamin C, fiber and protein, thanks to the peaches and creamy Greek yogurt base.
The hunt for the perfect summer peach will be well worth it if you ask Luisa Hammett, a registered dietician and the lifestyle blogger behind Peaches to Pearls, who shares her Summer Peach Salsa recipe. “What makes this recipe unique is the added sweetness and crispness of the peaches,” says Hammett, who recommends serving it as a standalone dip or with grilled chicken or fish tacos to add some extra flavor.
