Student Success

Students Succeeding in School


 

We all have a stake in making sure that today’s children grow up to be productive citizens who give back to the community.  We all win when children:

  • Enter school ready and prepared to succeed;

  • Read on grade-level by third grade;

  • Have support transitioning into and out of middle school;

  • Have support to graduate on time; and

  • Are given the skills needed to be successful in college, career, and our community.

Our Work in Education

  • We oversee the volunteer-run Stuff the Bus program designed to ensure low-income elementary students have the school supplies they need when they begin the school year.  CLICK HERE for more information.

  • We work closely with the North Penn School District on several projects, including their preschool outreach efforts to enhance alignment of curriculum between the early childcare centers and the kindergarten program, and their support of a summer family food program. We continue to work with both North Penn and the Souderton Area School District on data sharing with our funded partner agencies that provide programs for their students and families.

  • We participate in several community efforts focused on raising awareness of the importance of early childhood education for our preschool children and families.

  • We help fund programs to advance education across the community.
