“What I see from our kids when they come home at night is a genuine excitement for school. They’re excited about the classwork. They’re excited about their friends. They engage us in the same discussions they had with their teachers. We continue to see this thriving for knowledge and this joy of being at school, which not everyone has; to see that in your kids makes you feel really good.”
