If you find yourself wondering, "What's Up in Winslow?" we have some exciting news for you! Our own Laura Bishop worked with the students, staff, and administration at Winslow Township School District to create a video addressing that very question! The video premiered at a Board of Education meeting on November 22, kicking off a night which highlighted the many talented stars that shine at Winslow! Check out the video here!
As we approach the holidays, many are counting the things for which they are thankful. The staff members of Rancocas Valley Regional High School in Mount Holly can add to their lists the wellness program the district started last year. It includes free classes such as yoga, Pilates, and nutrition, as well as access to bicycles and a wellness coach. In early November, the school even held its First Annual Staff Wellness Fair. We're extra thankful that reporters at The Courier-Post and The Burlington County Times realized how special this program is.
The students and staff of Middle Township Middle School heard what it means to serve in the most honorable way – by serving one’s country – at the school’s Fourth Annual Veterans Day Celebration on November 8. The entire student body – about 575 sixth- through eighth-graders – heard from four honored speakers and veterans, as well as patriotic songs from the Band and Choir. Area veterans and honorary guests, including several Board of Education members and teachers who have served in the armed forces, were then treated to a special lunch in the school’s media center, served by National Junior Honor Society students. Laura Bishop Communications was proud to be there to hear the veterans’ stories and see the students’ respect.
Cameron McAndrew and Lucas Costa-Carlos, both fifth-graders at Van Zant Elementary School in Evesham, were having lunch in the cafeteria last month when suddenly Cameron choked on a nacho. After Cameron gave the universal sign for choking, Lucas sprang into action, immediately performing the Heimlich maneuver until Cameron’s airway was clear. For their lifesaving actions, both boys were honored in front of the entire school and their families by the Evesham Fire-Rescue… Lucas even received the Citizens Lifesaving Award! LBC was there to capture it all, which led to articles on SNJ Today and in the Courier-Post!
Laura Bishop Communications just added another superstar to our team! Meet Carly Brady, our summer intern. Carly is a senior at The Pennsylvania State University, studying public relations, and will be working on grants and media lists at LBC. She is a resident of Haddon Heights.
Members of the Rancocas Conservancy board of trustees – is that you, Laura Bishop?! - recently spent a day clearing a meadow on one of their newest preserves, Cold Springs in Evesham Township. The meadow will provide a habitat for birds and butterflies. See more photos. Visit the Rancocas Conservancy website.
