Project Cornerstone


Project Cornerstone


Project Cornerstone has been a staple at Sartorette for many years. “Project Cornerstone is an initiative that seeks to build a community where all adults support children and youth so they can thrive. We can help the children in our community feel that they belong by creating thousands of moments when children/ youth feel valued, respected and known.”

Each year a team of parents, one from each classroom, are trained and share a book in the classroom that builds on students learning in the classroom and in the community. Project Cornerstone is purely run by Sartorette parent volunteers.

Volunteering is very easy. At the start of the year there is a short training meeting for the whole school year. The Project Cornerstone docent will provide all the necessary materials for your readings and how to lead discussion in the classroom.

Studies reveal strong and consistent relationships between the number of developmental assets present in young people's lives and the degree to which they develop in positive and healthful ways. Project Cornerstone uses this research as a guiding framework to build a web of support around every young person in our community.
