Anderson Schools to receive red carpet award resolution

Four Schools in my district have been awarded the highly prized red-carpet award. Calhoun Academy, Concord Elementary, Hanna-Westside Extension, & New Prospect Elementary.

On Tuesday (06.24.08) I will present Senate Resolutions to the following schools congratulating them on these awards. Each School will receive a framed copy of the resolution in their honor.
1-S. 1412 Calhoun Academy for the Arts
2-S. 1413 Concord Elementary
3-S. 1414 Hannah (misspelled) Westside Extension Campus
4-S. 1415 New Prospect Elementary

Whereas, schools were judged on a variety of factors, including the exterior and interior of the campus, the way people were treated in person and over the telephone, and the information on programs available for families and visitors.

Whereas, (School Name)’s mission is to empower children to achieve their fullest potential through challenging, yet diverse educational programs in a safe, innovative, caring environment that prepares them to be lifelong learners and active, productive members of the community. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate:

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to (School N
