Church Donation Helps Azalea Middle Promote Positive Behavior

When a neighborhood church contacted Azalea Middle School about lending a helping hand, it was an offer the school’s principal Connie Kolosey could not turn down.

Paradise Lutheran Church, located a few blocks away from the school in St. Petersburg, recently held two fundraising events to benefit the school.

On November 21, Reverend John R. Thompson, pastor, and Marilyn Wambold, chairperson of the Outreach Committee, presented a check for over $1300, the proceeds of the church’s November 8 Bake Sale and Yard Sale, to principle Kolosey.

The school will use the money to bolster its Positive Behavior Support Initiatives with students. The funds will be used to purchase items for the PBS store and underwrite activities that address student behavior. The donation will also help students adhere to the school’s modified dress code. The school will be able to provide students who do not comply with the dress code with the appropriate clothes purchased with donation dollars. With the church’s generous assistance, these efforts combined will help foster a positive school environment.
