What are parents saying?
…about a recent GAB Community Movie Night sponsored by the Kenosha School System.
“I just wanted to thank you for putting on the Kenosha Movie Night. I attended it with my daughter and on the way home she broke down crying and we had a healthy conversation about bullying. I knew she was being bullied however I was blinded and had no idea of the depth. Thank you for opening my eyes as a parent and giving her a platform to speak up about her experiences instead of holding them in and making a bad decision.”
