Project Cornerstone

Asset Building Champions (ABC) Program
ABC is a Project Cornerstone program geared toward engaging parents with kids.  At our school, parent volunteers are trained in the developmental assets model for positive youth development, and prepared to read a specially selected children’s book and lead related activities and discussions in classrooms each month. The program’s goal is to help our school communities achieve the following:
 
• Create a common language and vocabulary about student respect and behavior expectations among all members of the school community — students, parents and caregivers, teachers and staff.
• Help students develop skills to handle physical, verbal, relational and digital bullying and to STAND UP if they see someone else being bullied.
• Increase the number of caring adults on campus so that all students feel that there is at least one adult they can turn to if they have a problem.
• Contribute to a positive school climate where every student feels valued and supported to achieve and thrive. 
To learn more about ABC Cornerstone and how it is being used in your child's classroom this year, please see the Toolkit and Word Definitions below.

December, 2017 book:
BIG by Coleen Murtagh Paratore

Our students are learning how to be BIG. BIG isn't about size, but about impact. Being BIG is about thinking about the world and our place in it. The author defines BIG as being bright and imaginative, healthy, kind, and helpful, friendly, and valuable members of society.
 


Please spend some time at our campus to view the posters made by students all about how we are BIG at EDS.

BIG is being 
the BIGGEST you that you can be!
