Mission is what you do today. The mission is there to accomplish the vision.
Vision is where the mission takes you. The vision must be consistently good for everyone involved.
Each month I anticipate the release of the consistently inspiring: Andy Stanley’s Leadership Podcast. My desire to grow and improve as a leader only increases each time I listen. The powerful words shared by his guest, Horst Schulze, led me to reflect on the mission and vision of @ElliottLearners. After listening to our community and gathering feedback from our team during the 2018-19 school year, our mission has led us to develop the following vision.
Our intentionally collaborative team:
-seeks first to understand,
-partners with families,
-frequently communicates student progress, and
-believes we can lead each student to meet or exceed grade level standards and close achievement gaps in literacy, math, and science.
Our Elliott Community celebrates and empowers ALL children – who they are and who they will become.
We began the 2019-20 school year last week. Below are just a few photos that demonstrate how our vision is good for everyone involved. We have an incredible team and I am grateful for their unwavering commitment to our students and to bringing our vision to life each day!
