Preparing To Submit Photos for P&P Slide Show

Presidents’ & Principals’ Luncheon Slide ShowDSC_0079

CLICK HERE to view the “2015 Presidents’ & Principals’ Luncheon Slide Show”

Start Planning At the Beginning of the School Year

Local PTAs and PTSAs should be collecting electronic action photos of events and activates your PTAs /PTSAs are doing to make a difference in the school and or community.  The 4 or 5 photos from each unit will be edited into a slide show at the annual Presidents’ & Principals’ Luncheon held in May.  The dead line will be the April 15 of that year.  At the beginning of the year the president should assign a person that reviews these instructions, collects photos the entire year, and delivers the photos for the show, maybe the Historian.

What Makes A Good Photo For the Slide Show?DSC_0128

The photos should be people doing something, besides standing in a row (no rows of officers please).  CLICK HERE for my “PTA Photo Communication Tips”.  Here are somethings that are taken in to consider when choosing the photos to use in the slide show.

  1. Does photo show PTA involvement of students, teachers, school administrators, and PTA members?
  2. Is the photo showing an activity that is helping the school?
  3. Does the photo show action (examples:teaching, reading, feeding, building, etc.).
  4. Cell Phone photos are fine if you take them on the highest quality setting (the most pixels). Check your phone instructions on how to set to the highest quality.
  5. Please do not use multiple photo slides, several pictures on one slide. They do not show well on the screen.image3

Military Family Life Consultants (MFLC)

Through a collaboration with The Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense Military Community and Family Policy, Duval County Public Schools, and NS Mayport and NAS Jacksonville, Military Family Life Consultants (MFLC’s) have been provided to 12 Duval County Public Schools. The consultants’ services are designed to offer extra support to assist with the unique challenges which military families’ experience.

The primary focus of the Military & Family Life Counseling Program is prevention, education, and counseling support. The services are provided confidentially and no case records or documentation is kept. The consultants do not assess or diagnose, and when they encounter more in depth issues/diagnoses, they offer to connect military families with other helping agencies available on the installation or in the community. While meeting with children, MFLC’s always remain in line of sight of a teacher, staff member, or a parent.

The consultants are licensed clinicians who have demonstrated expertise in working with children. They can provide short-term non-medical counseling support in a variety of different ways: individual meetings with children, presentations about life skills issues, skill-building group discussions, and meetings with parents and families at the family’s request for additional counseling/coaching support.

Some of the common issues that CYB MFLCs help with include the following:

  • stress management and coping skills
  • anger management/conflict resolution
  • deployment and reintegration issues
  • feelings associated with separation and divorce
  • grief and loss reactions
  • self-esteem and confidence
  • communication skills
  • leadership skills

The seven MFLC’s have been assigned to work in the following schools:

  • Finegan Elementary: Ruthanne Wing with school counselor Donna Davis,
  • Mayport Elementary and Jax Beach Elementary: Susan Schanen with school counselors Melissa Hammond and Carla Crumley-Forest,
  • Mayport Middle: Robyn Ashburn with school counselor Adrienne Wakefield,
  • Venetia Elementary and John Stockton Elementary: Cheryl Alvarado with school counselors Na’toria Campbell and Cheryle Roman,
  • Oceanway Middle and San Mateo Elementary: Willie Lott with school counselors Amelia Williams and Duane Monte,
  • New Berlin Elementary and Sheffield Elementary: Shelley Rosen with school counselors Marisa Negron and Ginger Brown, and
  • Enterprise Learning Academy and Chimney Lakes Elementary: Diona Moody with school counselors Ellen Golden and Shelia Handress.

The school program model is designed to provide an informal context in which children can access a behavioral consultant in a non-threatening and supportive environment. MFLCs circulate throughout the school facility making themselves available in classrooms, libraries, staff lounges, athletic events and other areas as identified. By virtue of these efforts to become integrated into the day to day fabric of the school, the consultant becomes the friendly face on the playground, the compassionate listener in the lunchroom, and an objective resource to teachers and staff alike.

All military families will be given the opportunity to consent for their children to participate in this free service or to opt-out. For more information about MFLC services, contact your school to request the direct number for the MFLC on campus.

Or you can contact Judy Cromartie the School Liaison Officer for NS Mayport or Dawn Mills the School Liaison Officer for NAS Jax. As a military parent, if you have questions about this program or concerns about an educational issue impacting your child, they can be reached via email at or by phone at (904) 270-6289 X1305 [office] or or by phone at (904) 778-2236.
