As we reflect during this holiday season on the many blessings in our lives, we wanted to share some of ours with our KD family. As Directors, we have the good fortune to work with amazing families, talented teachers and staff, and a vibrant group of coworkers. Our days are never boring, to say the least. We work for a company that feels like family, supports the goals of its employees, and truly believes in the boundless potential of our students.
