Our congregation is involved at Caldwell Elementary in many ways.  We are blessed to have “adopted” this Title I school that is just down the street from our church.
The mission of Caldwell Elementary, the foundation of excellence for the future in the heart of McKinney, is to inspire and empower all students.  
Our mission is to share the heart of Christ from the heart of McKinney.  Caldwell is a perfect partner!
Caldwell Teacher & Staff Appreciation Treats!
We are sprinkling our Caldwell Elementary teachers and staff with thanks!  You can help us provide end of year teacher and staff appreciation snacks, treats, and gift cards.  CLICK HERE to donate.
Want to get involved in this ministry?  Email Pam Parmley.
We have been asked to help with a new volunteer need from 4th Grade.
They are looking for volunteers to read with children in the morning from 7:30-8. The children eat their breakfast during that time so the volunteers would need to show up a little before 7:30 to check in and be at the classroom by 7:30 to meet the child.
Volunteers can read to the children or have the children read to them. They are hoping to support the students emotionally and socially, as well as academically.  There are two classes of kids and would love to have two volunteers per morning.  CLICK HERE to email Pam Parmley to sign up.  You will also need to fill out an MISD volunteer form.
We provide backpacks and supplies for Caldwell during our Very Caldwell Christmas in July!
