CKSS School Cluster Parent Survey

A healthy school environment is important for everyone.  In an effort to continuously improve our school environment, we would like to come to our parent community to get your feedback. 

The purpose of this survey is to gain parent input about how we can continue to build a healthy school environment for your children at our school.  Your participation in this survey is voluntary. Results will remain anonymous and reported only in summary form.

Acknowledgement Project Update

The CKSS Acknowledgement project is no longer accepting acknowledgement nominations for the 2014-15 school year, as of June 1st -- we are working to get all previously submitted nominations complete by the end of the school year.  Look for us again in September, and, until then, we invite you to keep acknowledging, personally, the people who make a difference for you in your life!  CKSS acknowledges your for completing another school year!
