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 2020 we will expand this program to include 7 schools. 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
Happy Faces at Operation School Bell!
