Asset Building Champions (ABC) Program
What is the Project Cornerstone ABC Program?
ABC is Project Cornerstone’s most popular program, with more than 2,900 adults reading to 49,000 kids in 135 schools. The ABC Program is a literature-based program addressing important issues like respect, tolerance, honesty, peaceful conflict resolution, taking a stand against bullying behaviors, and refusing to participate in gossip. Volunteers read specially selected books then lead discussions and activities that help teach valuable lessons related to these issues.
The program’s goal is to help school communities achieve the following:
ABC Program at JAMM
In the 2015-2016 school year, the ABC program is continuing at JAMM. This will be our fourth year participating in the program. The goal is to have volunteer readers in each classroom in grades K-6 and lead the activities. This program is an integral part of making Jamm an even more successful school environment. Patrick Buchser, our principal, fully supports and is excited about the ABC program at Jamm.
Here are some of the comments from staff, students, and volunteer readers from current programs:
“We all are using a common language and can work on dealing with teasing and problems in the same way”
“The books were fun and the activities really helped hammer the lesson home”
“It is nice to have parents involved and reading in the classroom. The kids love that.”
ABC Program Books
The ABC program is a cumulative program spanning 3 years. We will start with ‘Asset Year 1’ books during the 2015-2016 school year and each year new books and concepts are introduced. The Asset Year 1 includes 8 books, with one book being read per month (skipping December and June). We will start with “Have you Filled a Bucket Today” and “Simon’s Hook”. These are the base books and all others build upon the concepts. More information on the books can be found on www.projectcornerstone.org
