The Caldwell County Board of Education, in conjunction with Kings Creek School faculty and staff strongly believes that learning takes place when there is shared effort, interest, and motivation by students, parents, and staff.  Parents and families play a vital role in their children’s success at school, and it is critical that parents work with teachers to ensure that children meet higher academic standards in order to be lifelong learners.
