It is hard to believe we are done with spring break and heading into the end of the year. While this year has provided us some challenges, I am so proud of all we have accomplished so far this year. Our students are amazing and show us each and every day all they are capable of!
I wanted to make you aware of some planning that we are taking part in. Our district leadership team has recently updated our district vision and mission statements. At the February board of education meeting, the board officially approved these. Our new statements are as follows:
Vision: We will develop resourceful, adaptable, lifelong learners who will be prepared for future opportunities.
Mission: The mission of the Windham Exempted Village Schools is to build a school community that has perseverance, integrity and the motivation to achieve success.
This is our first step to future planning that will guide our work. In addition, in April we will start what is called a “Portrait of a Graduate” work. When our students graduate from Windham, what do we want for them? We will have a team of staff, parents, students and community members who will work through this process over the course of four weeks. Then, this too will go to our board of education for approval.
Finally, in the fall we will start strategic planning for the district. We will look at what we plan for the next 3-5 years for our students, staff and community. This will take place over the course of the entire school year. We are still looking for parent and community volunteers for this work. If you are interested, please reach out to me at the board office.
This is such an exciting time to be a Bomber! Great things are happening each day and I am so lucky to be a part of it with all of you. Enjoy the sunshine and Go BOMBERS!
