Audubon Settle Alliance Program A Partnership with Audubon Elementary School
Who is Audubon Elementary School?
Audubon is in the Daviess County Public School system and serves children, Preschool – 5th grade, in Western Daviess County. The school is located off Hwy 60W on Worthington Rd. “The mission of Audubon Elementary School is to provide a safe, respectful environment where ALL students learn at high levels through a partnership of home, school, and community so dreams may take flight and soar.” Over 60% of Audubon’s students qualify for free or reduced lunch.
What is our Partnership?
Anything God wants it to be! We want to do all we can to minister to these children and their families and to provide support and encouragement to the Audubon administration and staff. We will work closely with Audubon’s principal, guidance counselor, and family resource coordinator to assist in needed areas. We are developing a plan to provide ongoing support through mentoring and tutoring, as well as providing some weekend food for the estimated 100 children who come to Audubon each Monday morning hungry.
Because they asked for help and we have to start somewhere! We also have several members of our congregation on staff at Audubon Elementary. We serve other schools in various ways throughout the year and we will not abandon those ministries. It is our prayer that this partnership will grow and flourish in such a way that will encourage other churches to join with other schools in our area.
How can I help?
Pray that God will bless and direct this partnership!
