Project Cornerstone

If you are a Stocklmeir Project Cornerstone parent reader, please see below the Book List for important information. 


Project Cornerstone is a volunteer reading program whereby parent volunteers read books in the classroom and work from a teacher-written lesson plan. These carefully chosen books promote positive social skills, reduce bullying, teach problem solving and encourage making healthy decisions. Project Cornerstone is a character education program, shown to improve academic achievement, lower behavioral referrals, and strengthen a positive, caring school climate. For more information, visit Project Cornerstone's Website or email projectcornerstone@stocklmeirpta.org.


For the coming year, here are some books we are reading in the classrooms. The books read to Kindergarten are different than for the other grades to make it more developmentally appropriate. Please chat with your children about what they learned in those lessons and how they can incorporate those messages into their daily lives at school, at home and in the community.
