Welcome back to Jackson School. I am very excited about the 2015 2016 school year and having the opportunity of growing the future leaders of tomorrow. This year our theme is Set the Stage to LEAD. All of our faculty and staff have been working with students on reviewing our school mission statement and developing our classroom vision and mission statements. Dr. Covey teaches us that we must begin with the end in mind and know where we are going first. Our school mission statement is to
LEAD, Encourage, Achieve and Dream. In order to LEAD, our students must follow the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Dr. Stephen Covey. Leaders also do the right thing, even when no one else is watching. We are teaching our students to Encourage others by using positive comments to build emotional bank accounts. Our students Achieve by learning how to set goals and create action plans to keep them on track. Finally our students Dream big by knowing that they are the future leaders of tomorrow and that they can do whatever they set their minds to do. Parents, please join us this year as we live our school mission statement. We will have several parenting events, where you can come and learn about the 7 Habits and join us on our journey. As always, I would like to thank you for supporting Jackson School, where we LEAD, Encourage, Achieve and Dream. It’s going to be an AWESOME school year!!!
