Greetings Parents!

 

Welcome to the ABC Cornerstone Program at Country Lane Elementary School! The program is supported by your generous donations to the Country Lane Home and School Club. Here you will find information about the books that are read to the children as well as any other helpful information that can help all of us be better parents.

 

ABC stands for “Asset Building Champions”. Every month, one a month, a parent volunteer goes into your child’s classroom to read a book about building “assets” in our children that can help them do well in school, become a better person, and succeed later in life. These assets are part of the 40 assets that have been identified by the Search Institute http://www.search-institute.org/ that can be crucial in the lives of all children. The program is administered by the YMCA of Silicon Valley in many Bay Area public schools with the hope of creating a positive school climate and a lasting impact on the lives of thousands of children http://www.projectcornerstone.org/index.html.

 

It only takes 2-3 hours every month. We provide you with the books (to be kept in the school), train you on each book, and provide you with all the supplemental activities and handouts. As parent volunteers, you get to interact with all the children in your child’s classroom, discuss important ideas with them and learn from this interaction1               .
