Draft Mission Statement Input

Hello stakeholders,

Our school community has been working on an updated mission statement over the past year.  We currently have a draft crafted using input given so far during the process to create an umbrella statement that describes the following:

  • Whom we seek to serve
  • What we seek to accomplish
  • How we make it happen

Please take time to give us input on the mission statement draft during this phase of the process that will end February 8th.

To do so, fill out the survey at this link https://goo.gl/f3Jb9r  

By next week we will have also formed grade level team statements that support the mission, those statements will be added to the next phase of input.
