Adopt-A-School Program

Mort Elementary and our Lakeshore Campus

In 2012, as an expression of the love of Christ, Bay Hope Church “adopted” Mort Elementary, a Title I school where over 90% of students receive free or reduced priced lunches. Bay Hope has committed to provide a network of support for Mort to help create an environment which empowers students, encourages teachers, enriches families and elevates the entire community.

Here are some of the ways we support students and families so they can reach their potential at Mort:

  • We coordinate, train and provide volunteers in Kindergarten through second grade to help students develop conversation and social skills through enrichment activities. Volunteers bring their life experiences to the classroom to expand children's knowledge and understanding. Teachers provide materials with different subject themes.

  • We support the Parent Resource Center to help parents become active and knowledgeable participants in their children’s education.

  • We ensure students’ basic needs are met by supporting the food pantry and uniform/clothing closet.

  • We help create a fun and positive environment for school staff by providing treats, events and encouragement throughout the school year.

  • We provide educational materials, equipment and supplies to enhance and enrich every student’s school experience.

This year Mort is in need of:

  • 40 volunteers that are willing to serve 1-2 hours a week (register below!)

  • Dry Erase Markers

  • Tubs of Disinfecting Wipes

Join us for the 2019-20 school year by volunteering!

Mort Elementary is located just 9 miles from our Lakeshore Campus on Bearss Ave.

Hospital Homebound Teachers

We provide Hillsborough County Public School Hospital Homebound teachers with prayers, love, support and encouragement throughout the year. Their students are too medically fragile to attend school, so these teachers travel to the students.
