The process that began back in January with a great coming together of minds has now produced results. We’ve had our Mission Statement survey open for more than a week and a half, and lots of families and staff have given thoughtful consideration to the various versions of a mission statement that you all have created. As might be expected with this process, several of you crafted similar messages, pulling together the various elements this way and that.
In the end, here is the version that captured the most support. As with so much of this TLIM journey, we keep looking down at our feet to see where we are after we’ve taken a next step, as we’re not always familiar with where we’re going. So here we are with this new mission statement, not completely sure what comes next but knowing that this powerful statement can guide, encourage, direct, and inspire the work of our PTO over the coming years. And the winner is . . .
Our Mission as a Parent Lighthouse Team is to be invested in activities that enhance the lives of the students, teachers, staff, and families at WWES. We will hold ourselves accountable for encouraging parental involvement and for completing what we begin. We will synergize to sponsor programs and events that strengthen and support the community, school spirit, and the educational opportunities for our students.
