Project Cornerstone

What is the Project Cornerstone program?

Project Cornerstone is a literature based program addressing important issues including respect, tolerance, honesty, peaceful conflict resolution, taking a stand against bullying behaviors, and refusing to participate in gossip. Volunteers read specially selected books and lead discussions and activities that help teach valuable lessons related to these issues. 

* 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
