The Kairos Family BBQ drew about 700 hundred people to the new charter school’s campus on Saturday for a welcoming picnic.
The picnic was a way to introduce the parents to the teachers for the upcoming school year and give everyone some time to get to know each other.
“We have a lot of friends from around the area who plan to bring their kids to this school,” said Kim Haddon, who has three sons in charter schools.
Her husband Daniel remembers how his youngest son struggled in second grade in public school. Everything turned around for him after they put him in the Alternative Cooperative Education Charter School.
