Student/Staff/Parent - Vision & Mission

On October 30, a group of Main Street students, staff and parents gathered together to participate in a Mission/Vision exercise. The session, facilitated by MCOE’s Roberto Nunez and Michelle Ramirez began with students and parents meeting separately from staff to develop their statements. Student wrote about hopes, aspirations and expectations of their school. Staff wrote vision/mission statements. The groups then convened together to hear each other’s statement. The students spoke about values of family, a safe home and support from their parents as well as their teachers. Staff wrote about student achievement and success. Once the students read their statements, staff rewrote their mission/vision statements, infusing elements of support, understanding and empathy for students. It was a powerful experience for all participants.
