We need YOUR help!

The PCMS Leadership Team met this summer and reviewed the responses and feedback provided in our Vision and Mission Survey. There were many commonalities and trends in the responses from teachers, other staff, parents, and other members of our school community. The team collaborated to draft two working mission and vision statements. The drafted statements are included below:


Mission Draft #1 - Our mission is to connect students, families, school, and community.


Mission Draft #2 - Our mission is to develop positive relationships, support student individuality, and build skills for future readiness.


Vision Draft #1 - Our students will be Productive individuals who are Confident and Motivated to be Successful in THEIR future.


Vision Draft #2 - Our students will be adaptive and flexible problem solvers who are purpose-driven, functioning members of society.


You can see actual pictures of the leadership team's work below. We would love to have additional feedback on these working drafts from parents and community members. Click here to contribute your input toward revising our school mission and vision statement!
