August 7, 2010 marked the Back-To-School & Bully Awareness Workshop for incoming students. Those in attendance were informed on how to control issues of bullying in the school, provide better monitoring of children’s academic progress, and maintain school faculty communication for the betterment of their child’s success.
Peachstate Psychiatric Services and Dr. Dwight Owens would like to thank all parents and students who attended, and special thanks to the speakers who donated time and resources to further educate the participants.
