Small Classroom School
Only 20 minutes from Washington, PA (travel 70 West), 20 minutes away from Wheeling, WV (travel 70 East), and less than a mile off the interstate Exit 1, Kleine Klasse (KKS) is in a safe smalltown setting with plenty of space outside to enjoy. Nearby, includes a basketball court, community garden, and play area. KKS is just minutes away from Cabelas and Highlands Shopping. Our non-profit has different branches. The three main services are academic support, food, clothing, and library pantries, and the restoration of West Alexander (WAACOS).
We are in agreement that a small classroom learning environment is the best practice in education, and although technology and other learning tools can be helpful at times, there is nothing like the sparkle in the eyes of a student when they comprehend the material presented.
We believe that each person is unique and has a specific purpose for their life as God has armed them with gifts. Cookie cutter approaches will not suffice for our students to reach their full potential. We service students from kindergarten to adults, learning never ends. Parents can be sure of a comfortable environment for their child to learn, while they wait or shop.
Food, Clothing, and Library Pantries
At 130 Main Street, when the door is open, come on in! We often have non-perishable food, Panera bread, and other goodies looking for a home. The Clothing is generally lightly used items in various sizes. This can be different on a daily basis. In addition, we have a Give and Take library. We have hundreds of books, magazine, and resources looking to be read. All books are available to go to a new home unless they include the few that have red stickers. The red sticker books are to be used at the center.
West Alexander Revitalization
For those who grew up in West Alexander, fond memories of our vibrant town flood our minds. Well, we are determined to get there again. It will not be an overnight transformation, but a slow and steady improvement involving several volunteers who love to persevere. If you would like to join us, please contact us!
