Congratulations to STAIR for being one of the recipients of the 2016 Exemplary Volunteer Awards given out by the Anne Arundel Public Schools.  It is great to know that our work is making an impact in our community!

2016 05 19 STAIR award

This year, POP volunteers continued to work with students from Nantucket Elementary School in Crofton, providing after-school tutoring to second-graders who were having difficulty with reading.  Studies have shown that children who struggle with reading after second grade are far more likely to drop out of school later.  You don’t have to be a member of our church to join us in this ministry.  Call the church office, 410-721-2313, if you are interested in joining us.  Training is provided to all tutors, who meet with the students 1-2 hours a week.  As of July 2020, we are awaiting word from the STAIR Annapolis leadership as to how this program will be implemented in the 2020-21 school year.
