“Our son has always felt loved and welcomed by all the staff at the Mulvane Grade School.  The school and staff
are always welcoming, whether it be from the crossing guard to the office staff.  His teachers have always made
him felt loved and a part of their school family. When your kid talks to you about their school family, and calls it
his “School family,” it’s a relief knowing your child is safe and feels safe at school.”
-Jennifer Gillespie

“I’m thrilled, but not at all surprised, about the Mulvane Grade School being awarded for their Capturing Kids’
Hearts (CKH) follow-through and relationships fostered. I see how authentically CKH flows through my kids’
teachers and paras every time I’m in the building. What warms my heart even more, is also seeing CKH bonds
between students and the “lunch hens,” secretaries, nurses, custodians and all the MGS staff. I can’t remember
a time I’ve walked through the halls at MGS and been greeted without a warm and genuine smile too, which is
where it all starts, with a cheerful greeting.”
-Brittany Shook
