MURDOCK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL


Covenant enjoys a long-term partnership with the Murdock Elementary School community. Here are some of the ways you can be a part of building stronger relationships with Murdock students and, in some cases, their families:

Through Big Brothers, Big Sisters

Sometimes the best place to help a child realize their potential is at school. Kids enjoy having their Bigs meet with them there, whether it’s in the classroom or on the playground. And parents know what a positive impact it makes. This is a weekly, ongoing commitment.

We partner with Read to Succeed to help improve student reading skills. This involves reading in a classroom for one hour each week during the school year. Our area schools, including Murdock, are already seeing results; Read to Succeed is a part of improving student achievement.

Each fall, Covenant partners with Murdock to provide dinner, games and decorated vehicles where we give away candy and snacks. Many Murdock students have no safe place to trick or treat, so they enjoy having a safe place to celebrate. Our date for 2019 is October 29.

Sign up here to volunteer.


For more information about Covenant's partnership with Murdock Elementary School, watch this interview with Janell, the principal of Murdock Elementary School.


After School Program

In the interview, Janell talks about FOCUS, Murdock's after school program. It's only $320 to sponsor one child for the entire year, or $40/month. You can give online here, choose "to Murdock" from the drop down menu.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT


Covenant recognizes families are hurting all over the greater Lafayette area. We strive to support individual families and several different organizations working to help these at-risk families.

Foster Care Families

We offer encouragement, training and networking for foster families. All foster parents are invited to Covenant the second Tuesday of each month for a discussion on topics relevant to foster parenting along with time for personal stories and support. Enter through the Green Awning Entrance.

For more information, email Covenant.


With a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) or guardian ad litem (GAL) volunteer dedicated to their case, Lafayette’s most vulnerable children will have someone speaking up for their best interests. With your support, more children will have the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.
