“I’m sure it’s easy for teachers to celebrate straight A students, but it takes a special teacher to acknowledge and celebrate what may not show up on a report card, such as working hard and being kind. These teachers came in and built my child up. They had supportive conversations with her that didn’t only focus on grades but on her overall success. It 100% changed the way my daughter looked at herself and how she felt about school.”  Parent of a CKS 5th grader
