Our central office lives in one of our recently retired elementary schools. Lots of kid and teacher echoes in our hallways. I just walked over to see a colleague and was struck by the words we have chosen for our walls. Our daily reminders. Here they are:
I’m proud to work in a place that lives these words and thinks enough of them to commit them to public display.
Here are some of our other words:
Vision: The vision of Fife Public Schools is to be an inclusive and affirming learning organization that inspires achievement and personal growth in all students and prepares them to succeed in college, careers, community and life.
Mission: “The mission of Fife Public Schools is to be equity-focused and committed to success for all, including dismantling barriers for historically marginalized groups. Recognizing, celebrating, and embracing the diversity in our students and staff, we will…”
- Engage our students in rigorous, culturally responsive experiences that link learning to college, careers, community, and life
- Foster staff collaboration
- Provide a safe and supportive environment for all
- Cultivate collaborative, long-lasting relationships with families/caregivers and strong partnerships with community.
Daily, our educators in the classroom, move young people forward, into their dreams and aspirations. I like that our words reflect that.
