Belcher Elementary School

St. John's sponsors Belcher Elementary School in a variety of ways, helping students through mentorships, meals by our Pack-A-Sack program, and St. John's Annual Christmas Giving Tree ministry.

Belcher Elementary School

The St. John's congregation is dedicated to supporting its students in every way possible. Through mentorship, nurturing, and providing food throughout the school year, we strive to empower our students to succeed. With our weekly meal program, we ensure that those in need have access to nourishing meals over the weekend. We understand that some of our students can only eat at school, so we offer our Pack-A-Sack ministry to provide them with a meal to feed them through the weekend. We are proud to be a community that takes care of its own, and we will continue to do everything in our power to support our students.

During the Advent Season, St. John's is given a list of names, ages, clothing sizes, and Christmas wishes of children from Belcher Elementary who may not receive a Christmas present otherwise. The "Giving Tree" has tag-ornaments with the children's information for those who wish to make a child's Christmas special. This year, many generous donors have stepped up to give from their hearts and help bring joy, hope, and love to these children. Through their kindness, they are helping to make a brighter future for these children.

The Lunch Pals program pairs students with PCS (Pinellas County Schools) volunteers who meet for 30 minutes once a week during the student’s lunch. Through one-on-one interaction and attention, this program encourages students to be more communicative, practice good behavior, and invest in their learning by providing a supportive adult figure to students. A volunteer mentor supports a positive attitude towards school in order to achieve academic success and to help the student experience improved self-esteem.

 

Mentors must go through a 1-hour long training workshop and register as a Level 1 volunteer with Pinellas County Schools. Mentor workshops are hosted across the county and online.
