Ethel M. Taylor, CPS Community Learning Center, and Resource Coordinator, Molly Luken, are featured in national media, an article written by Geoff Williams in Aljazeera America. Principal Sean McCauley asked Molly to establish the Soaring Hawks Foundation instead of relying on fundraising by students to support school needs. Congratulations Sean McCauley and Molly Luken on your successful Soaring Hawks Foundation and for receiving much-deserved national recognition!
Health and Wellness
Central Clinic is Taylor's lead partner in supporting the health and wellness of Ethel M. Taylor Academy students with a variety of health resources. Though the strong relationship formed with Central Clinic, other agencies have been brought into partnership with Taylor.
Counseling services are provided for children, ages 5 to 18. Students are encouraged to be mentally healthy, to engage in less risky behaviors, and to develop positive relationships with family, peers and other adults.
Children referred for counseling may have experienced a family crises, such as the death of a family member. Self-destructive behavior, depression, or serious behavior problems in school may all be signs that a child may benefit from counseling. Central Clinic also helps children with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
