Stults Road Elementary School
Stults Road Elementary School located on Stults Road is a Title I school in the Richardson School District characterized by large percentage of minority students and those on the reduced or free lunch program. Approximately 400+ students attend Stults Road.
Ascension has had a partnership with Stults Road Elementary since 2005. What began as some basic activities such as reading in the classroom the Stults Road ministry now provides over 25 mentors each year, teacher appreciation activities, read-a-thons, book donations, science fair judges and other activities. In 2006, volunteers took it upon themselves to “revamp” the entire teachers lounge!
A Book Drive each spring provides a book for every child at Stults Elementary School for their summer reading.
In 2016, we began a new Pen-Pal program as well. Members from Ascension exchange letters with 4th grade students, building community as well as the writing skills of the students.
