Legacy of Literacy and Arts for Kids
What is Assistance League Schools?
♦ A partnership implemented by Assistance League® of Denver with designated Denver and Aurora Public Schools.
♦ A collaborative approach to providing the selected schools with programs and services that Assistance League of Denver offers.
The PURPOSE of Assistance League Schools is:
♦ To significantly IMPACT and improve the lives and experiences of students and their families.
♦ To not only provide our existing programs but to collaborate with the school administrators and parents to determine what services will be most impactful to them.
Assistance League Schools is a new program, and we plan to expand it to include 12 schools over the next five years. In 2019 we formed a partnership with ValVerde Elementary School in Denver Public Schools and Boston P-8 in Aurora Public Schools. In 2021 we added 4 schools, Math and Science Leadership Academy and Munroe within DPS, and Paris Elementary and Fulton Academy of Excellence within APS. The programs and services included but were not limited to the following:
- Operation School Bell® – Partnering with JC Penney, we allow students from selected Denver Public Schools and Aurora Public Schools to receive vouchers to shop for new school clothes on a selected Sunday before the store opens to the public. JC Penney usually also gives a 15% discount on the clothes that day. Click here for information
- Arts for Kids – Brings fine art programs including music, dance and theatrical productions to selected Denver Public School and Aurora Public School children. Click here for information
- Scholarship – English Language Acquisition Classes for parents.
- Legacy of Literacy – Literacy support as requested by the schools. Click here for more information
