KENOWA HILLS ZINSER ELEMENTARY RECEIVES CAPTURING KIDS’ HEARTS NATIONAL SHOWCASE SCHOOLS® AWARD FOR THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR.

April 30, 2021

Grand Rapids, MI – Kenowa Hills Public Schools is proud to announce that Zinser Elementary was one of a select group of schools that has received the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools® award for the 2020-2021 school year.

National Showcase Schools are chosen annually through a rigorous selection process that includes measuring key performance indicators, gathering school data, and surveying staff and students. Capturing Kids’ Hearts celebrates campuses where educators are exceeding expectations and creating an environment where students feel safe, connected, and eager to learn despite the challenges this year.

“We are extremely honored to be recognized by Capturing Kids’ Hearts and I couldn’t be prouder of our hard-working staff, that always focuses tremendous effort on relationships with students,” said Principal Ross Willick. “Being awarded a National Showcase School for Capturing Kids’ Hearts is a direct result of the Kids Who Care culture we’ve created in our building.”

Capturing Kids' Hearts® is a nationally recognized program that equips K-12 professionals to implement practices focused on social-emotional wellbeing and relationship-driven culture through training, a Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum, and personalized support. Click here to learn more.

EDUCATION
REDEFINED

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
