Community Learning Program
The Community Learning Program originally began as the Community Reading Partnership in the spring of 2008. The Community Reading Partnership was designed to foster a love of reading in students in kindergarten through 3rd grade at St. John the Baptist Catholic School. The program was also designed to involve parishioners from St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in the life of the school.
The school has recently determined another academic need: providing students with more opportunities to practice basic math facts. As a result, the start of the 2010 school year saw the expansion of the Community Reading Partnership to also include math and thereby renaming it the Community Learning Program: Parishioner Student Partnership. Volunteers for the math part of the program play math games or practice basic math facts with students in kindergarten through 5th grade.
Our volunteers have been outstanding in sharing their time, love, faith, and talent with the children. Many come to the school to read with students from 9:00-10:00 and then stay through snack and recess to practice math facts with students from 10:30-11:30! We would love to see more faces from our parish community and will provide all the necessary training and accommodate schedules as needed. Please look for the application form and other program information on the school or parish website, and please contact us with any questions you have.
