Burgess, Haynes and Lamar Elementary Schools have received a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools Award for the 2018-2019 school year.

Through the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards, the Flippen Group recognizes and celebrates campuses that go the extra mile each day, building an environment where students and staff feel safe and connected.

Beginning in 2016-2017, these three schools began an initiative to transform its campuses into an emotionally safe and relationally connected place for students, staff, and parents.

A Flippen Group team visited each nominated campus to gather additional quantitative and qualitative data, and to interview students, teachers, administrators, and parents.

They used a matrix of key measurements to gather information during the campus walk-through. Finally, an additional survey was conducted to collect feedback regarding the perceived climate and culture of the campus and its conduciveness to learning.

Following this visit, the selection team reviewed all accumulated data and selected the campuses to receive the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards.

Congratulations on a wonderful achievement!
