Community Resources
Here at Martin Luther King Elementary our Community Leader is Ms. Jones. Ms. Jones provides services for the Case Management Program. Through this program, the community leader provides essential needs for students and their families in need of food, clothing, utilities, financial, dentist and optician. She also provides mentoring services for the girls in G.A.I.L. (Getting Ahead in Life) and boys (Building Individual Life Lessons) programs. The community leader is responsible for sending information to parents and students requested by the United Methodist Community Center, Board of Education, or Principal. Please feel free to contact Ms. Jones at the Martin Luther King at (330) 744-7823 with any questions about these services or programs.
In an effort to support our literacy framework, Martin Luther King Staff has teamed with the Public Library in a program to provide opportunities for our children to have access to books as much as possible. The Public Library will be here on Thursdays to have k to 3rd grade check out 2 books about every month. They will also give students a public library card to use when the program ends (in March). Please feel free to contact the school.
In efforts to help give extra support to our students, we have foster grandparents in some classrooms. The grandparents are there to give extra support in math, language arts, science, social studies and word study. They help assist the classroom teacher by small group instruction. The grandparents help share their compassion and experience to our students!!
