Project Cornerstone

What is Project Cornerstone?  In Project Cornerstone's Asset Building Champions program (ABC), parent volunteers read specially selected stories, then lead classroom activities and discussions about building appropriate social skills. The lessons focus on values like honesty, responsibility, and peaceful conflict resolution. Special attention is given to issues like student-to-student, dealing with bully behaviors, and social conflicts.

Each month a school-wide book is read in every classroom on campus. The book and discussion teach life skills and tools. Project Cornerstone gives students a safe and caring place to talk about their feelings, experiences and concerns. The goal of the program is to teach our children skills that they can use today and throughout their lives to help them deal with peer pressure, building and keeping friendships, making healthy decisions, and solving problems. By sharing these concepts,  our entire school community, from principal to student, share a vocabulary and collective strategies for dealing with difficult situations both in school and out.

Trainings, books and lessons are all developed for you - we just need eager volunteer readers to lead successful monthly visits.  This is a great way to volunteer in your child's classroom.
