“Strong Schools Make Strong Communities”: Community Engagement: Alice Coachman Elementary School

Alice Coachman Elementary is fortunate in having a strong group of individual, community-based, and corporate volunteers who see their involvement in “our neighborhood school” as a civic duty.  They live in the same community as the students and parents and feel strongly that “strong schools make strong communities.” Volunteers work in individual classrooms tutoring children, assist in the library, raise funds, and sponsor programs with a strong emphasis on literacy such as Reading Across America and Books Are Fun. Most important, they feel welcome in the school and appreciated for their efforts. Read the transcript of Community Engagement. Return to the general introduction to Alice Coachman Elementary School.
