The Parent & Teacher Organization for Louise Van Meter Elementary, Los Gatos, CA



Project Cornerstone

2014 ushered in Van Meter’s 9th year as a Project Cornerstone “ABC Readers” School. Funded generously by Van Meter HSC, Project Cornerstone:
-  within the school has grown to over 80 parents/guardians reading and teaching character-building lessons to our valued students every month,
- provides weekly contribution to the bulldog beat via Cornerstone Corner, and Mondayschool-wide PA announcements, 
- creates comprehensive PowerPoint-based training tools for volunteers to efficiently prepare and deliver consistent lesson messages and activities,
- communicates bi-directionally with teachers to maximize classroom
- hosts industry-renowned speakers/authors to reinforce asset- building messages.
As we build assets within, Van Meter delivers out to the community with parent/student projects. This season of giving, 60 blankets will be sent to Santa Clara County Foster Infants, that are assembled in Cornerstone Classrooms.  

FunZone comes to Van Meter

Recently, Van Meter launched its Cornerstone extension lunchtime program – FunZone. FunZone offers every student a place where they can feel valued, known and welcomed. Staffed by parent volunteers, the program offers board games, Legos, craft centers, sidewalk chalk and bubbles. Our parent-led drum session and recent cultural arts and crafts fair featuring Rangoli chalk patterns and and poster art were enormously popular and enriching. HSC’s generosity in funding these programs is appreciated. Let’s carry the programs forward by volunteering as a lunchtime “FunVisor.”
