Description of Agency/Activities: Hopkins Lloyd Community School strives to meet the needs of our children both in and out of the classroom through community involvement.  Our school currently serves students grades k4-8th grade.  Our mission at Hopkins-Lloyd Community School is to produce well-rounded, socially conscious students who are academically proficient in all core content areas.  Here at HLCS, we focus on providing a safe, caring environment with an energetic, positive atmosphere that fosters a sense of well-being and promotes enjoyment of learning. Our goal as educators is to encourage students to use their knowledge and educational experience to positively impact their community. We also stress the importance of developing strong technological skills in an effort to prepare students for success in a globally connected world.  Our students benefit from specialist-taught classes in African hand drumming and we offer an exciting middle school drum line program.   We are also grateful for our generous community partners, who offer students unique perspectives and support them on their educational quests.  Our community partners include PEARLS for Teen Girls, City Year and Play Works and a host of others. 

Student Role at Agency: As a school our literacy goal for the year is that 1st through 3rd grade students will increase their scores in word knowledge and skills by 5% by the winter assessment window and 10% by the spring assessment window as indicated by universal screener and classroom based assessments.  Service Learner will work in the 1st- 3rd grade classes assisting students on their reading.  Tasks will range from reading books with students, working with students on assigned reading sheets, helping students with pronunciation of words and also assisting the teacher with reading instruction in the class.
