Before Natalie became a part of the P4K Elementary School Program at Saratoga Elementary School, she had a lot of difficulty with school. “I struggled with math work and though I’m not proud of it, I didn’t know how to respect those around me, but more importantly, I didn’t know how to respect myself,” admits Natalie.

Natalie credits P4K for helping her to turn things around and believe in her own abilities. “As I became more involved in setting positive goals, I found I could do so much more than I ever gave myself credit for. I stopped giving up when things got tough,” she says. Soon Natalie began to see a change in her attitude toward school and how she approached life. “A leader was emerging from within me. I feel that the program gave me the confidence and pride that I need to be successful in middle school and beyond,” Natalie says.
