With 2016 well underway, I would like to share some of the exciting things going on at Highland. We are in the beginning stages of developing a shared vision for our school. Together, we will define what we value, what we believe, and what we hope to be here at Highland Elementary School. This process will involve our students, staff, families, and community as we embark on this journey together.
We have already taken our first steps by sharing our process with our staff and our families. During our recent PTO meeting, I discussed this endeavor with our parents and teachers. At Highland we want to have a common direction that leads us and inspires us; a shared vision. During our meeting, I asked each person to write their response to the following question: How would you describe the ideal elementary school for your child? I was struck by the fervor with which each person wrote! Parents and teachers alike wrote about topics like safety, relationships, an inspired love of learning, caring teachers, and high academic standards.
If you were unable to attend our meeting this month, we want to provide you with an opportunity to voice your thoughts about our school’s vision. In the next several weeks, we will be reaching out to all families with a survey. This survey will ask specific questions in order to gain your beliefs about Highland’s areas of strength as well as areas for growth. We will also ask for your input regarding our vision. When the survey is ready, we will make it available through a link that will be sent via email and will also be posted on our website. It will also be available in paper form. We are hopeful that we receive a wide response from parents.
Thank you for your ongoing support and care for Highland Elementary School.
