CKH Connection - Launch!

In the EXCEL Teaching Model™, Launching has to do with the way we end and send. It is the way teachers end a classroom experience and the way they send their charges forth to face the future. This is vastly different from just having students rush out the door when the bell rings. Launch Teachers end the school day leaving students energized and excited for tomorrow.

Try launching your student on their way to school, to end the day or into the week/weekend! Here are a few ways to get started :

  • Be the reason someone smiles today.
  • Be kind to unkind people, they need it the most.
  • Dreams don't work unless you do.
  • Today is full of possible.
  • Always believe you can.
  • It may not be easy but it will be worth it.
  • Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.
  • Change your thougths and you'll change your world.
