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 community 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. 
If reading to a classroom of students is not something you are interested in, but you would still like to be involved as an ABC Caring Adult in areas such as recess time, school-wide communication and events, etc., please let us know. If you have questions about ABC at EDS, please e-mail us at [email protected]. We'd love to hear from you!
