Making a difference in our schools

SchoolWorks is a coalition of churches striving to make a lasting difference in our local community by dedicating ourselves to serving children, teachers, and families of local schools and meeting their needs in real, practical ways.

  • Adopt a Classroom

    March 5- 19

    In lieu of our annual book drive we are going to do something more personal and adopt the teachers and classrooms at Townsell Elementary.

    Individuals and/or groups can adopt a teacher and create a gift bag full of favorite things or you can adopt a classroom and purchase books for that class. (Or both). Once you sign up, we will email you with the details of the classroom and/or teacher that they you adopted. We need the gifts back at IBC on March 19th.

  • ​Reading Buddies (Elementary)

    We provide Reading Buddies to help students who are reading below their grade level. In a one-on-one atmosphere, volunteers allow the child to read to them and encourage them with each accomplishment. It helps to build the student’s self-confidence and give them a new appreciation for reading.

  • Lunch Buddies (Middle School)

    We provide Lunch Buddies to students who are in need of a positive adult influence in their life. During the middle school years, students are making decisions and building attitudes toward school and authority that will determine the direction of their life. Providing people who can give sound advice, wisdom and a caring heart can help students see the possibilities of making positive choices.

  • Mentors (High School)

    We provide Mentors who meet regularly with at-risk students, serving as a support in the issues and pressures they face.

  • Be a Half Hour Hero

    Making a difference in the life of a student starts with you saying “Yes!” Yes to investing in their life, yes to a one-on-one relationship, yes to joining them on their journey. Join others today and begin to say yes!
