M.C. Cash Elementary School — Kids at Hope

Kids at Hope is a framework designed to engage entire communities to support success for all children, no exceptions. It is a belief system based on the following three universal truths: Children succeed when they are surrounded by adults who believe they can succeed, no exceptions; Children succeed when they have meaningful and sustainable relationships with caring adults; Children succeed when they can articulate their future in four domains: Home and Family, Education and Career, Community and Service, and Hobbies and Recreation.

Because Kids at Hope is built on the premise that all students have anchor adults in their lives, Cash students know that when they come to school there is a caring adult that will always be there for them. Everyone on campus; maintenance staff, teachers, office staff, and administrators; believes that all children are capable of success and so the entire campus works together to create an incredible environment to ensure students are successful.

Since implementing Kids at Hope, M.C. Cash has seen an increase in student confidence and students arrive to school happier.
