Summer Reading Booster

Sign up your child today!  

Start the next school year with a boost!  Did you know over the summer students can lose up to 20% of the reading they learned during the school year?  We want to help students get the head start they need to succeed by offering a one week reading booster this summer.  Students can come and receive a free lunch followed by classes, reading buddies, and games led by secure professionals and volunteers all with the goal of helping your student’s reading.

Our Partnership with Madras Elementary

We believe Jesus can make a difference to the families in our city.  Whether improving literacy, serving food, or just being someone to listen we at Cornerstone hope to make great families by the power of Jesus.  Building *great families begins as we reach out and connect with our community. Serving Madras Elementary allows us to extend our reach into the heart of Jefferson County. 

See how you can be a part of that extension below.

  • Become a reading buddy or Help a teacher

    Two out of three of students who cannot read proficiently by the end of 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare (Literacy).  We believe Jesus can make a difference in the life of students and their families.  We want to show the love of Jesus by helping with reading, listening, and caring for students in our community.  Or, you can help with material prep for a teacher who is already trying to balance the demands of teaching.

    Fill out the form below to serve.  Background checks are required.

  • Family Engagement nights

    Once a month Madras Elementary invites the students entire families to the school for a nutritious dinner and some time for families to connect with teachers.  Our church serves the meal, allowing the teachers to love the kids.  Join us as we demonstrate the love of Jesus to teachers, students, and their families.

  • Summer Reading Booster

    The Summer Reading Booster is a one week summer reading coaching class we are providing for struggling students at Madras Elementary School. During the last week of July students will be able to come to our building, receive a lunch, and be coached in small groups.
