Academics have always been a fundamental aspect when speaking about a school, but community involvement also helps hold the mold together.
Kyrene de la Colina Elementary School has always had a rich-community involvement, having community events at the school on a once-a-month occurrence.
Principal Kelley Brunner finds that the school community is always willing to help with any activities surrounding the school.
“I’ve been to a lot of schools and it really makes a difference with the more involved your school community is, the stronger the school is,” Brunner said. “We probably do more community events than most schools, as a way to build that positive relationship. It requires a lot of volunteers, we have volunteers during the school day to help and support children, and I do appreciate that. They work really hard for our schools, and for our teachers and children.”
