TKS CARES - Leadership Through Community Service

TKS Cares is a school-sponsored community service outreach program providing students and their families opportunities to give back to local charities and the surrounding community. The program seeks to provide a supportive environment for students to develop their leadership skills, connect and understand the needs in their community, spend quality time with their families and classmates during service projects, and foster the intrinsic value of giving of oneself time and talent. The program upholds and supports the School’s mission statement.

At The Kessler School, the TKS Cares Program is incorporated at every grade level- Preschool, Lower, and Middle School. Through service learning, students work together with their teacher to develop community projects. Afterwards, students reflect on what happened during the experience. The learning becomes meaningful and students see how and why being involved citizens leads to positive change. When students serve, they learn!

Every year, The Kessler School will adopt an annual school wide service day where faculty, staff, students, and parents give back to the community.
