From the Principal

Our school‘s vision and mission statements are the foundation for creating a productive school environment. The public display of our school’s mission statement is on our website and on guiding documents.  Our mission statement answers the question of what we are trying to accomplish and guides our actions. I would like to revisit and call to your attention what our vision and mission statements are as a reference point and as a reminder. Together we can align our intentions with purposeful actions!  It is simple to say that schools and school cultures that are unaware of their mission statement cannot fulfill them.
