What is the Project Cornerstone ABC Program?

The ABC Program is a literature-based program addressing important issues like respect, tolerance, honesty, peaceful conflict resolution, taking a stand against bullying behaviors, inclusion and refusing to participate in gossip. Volunteers read specially selected books then lead discussions and activities that help teach valuable lessons related to these issues.  For more information, checkout:

Eight books will be read throughout the year in each classroom.  Book titles for 2016-2017 school year include Stand Tall Molly Lou Mellon, Don’t Laugh At Me, The Ok Book.
