The Strategic Plan we recently completed under the direction of Partners in Mission has already had a tremendous impact on our school.  This process has crystallized our vision for our future, provided the necessary tools to achieve our goals and generated excitement and engagement from our community.  Even in the midst of a pandemic, the work we completed provided me with a better understanding of my role as principal and freed me up to prioritize and focus on the needs of our school.  In a year that has presented numerous challenges, it has really been my easiest year as principal.  This is a direct result of our work with Partners in Mission.
