  January Greetings 2015

Greetings parents and guardians of SRES students! We are almost two weeks into the second semester of this school year and we want you to know what is in store for January. One thing we began working on the first semester is revising our school mission statement. We have been gathering input from staff, students and parents. Below is a draft statement. We have been analyzing and discussing the importance of the meaning of the words in a mission statement. A mission statement defines our purpose. Below, when we talk about a child reaching his/her full potential, this encompasses so much! I believe everyone has gifts and talents with the ability to be the best at whatever one sets out to do. To me reaching one’s full potential comes through persistence in the face of challenges, through believing in oneself, and though having high expectations and the desire to be one’s best. Please read the mission statement below and discuss with your child what the words in the mission statement means to him/her and also to you and others. Thank you!

Erik Haarstad • SRES Principal

SRES Revised Mission Statement (DRAFT)

In partnership with family and the O’Odham and Piipaash community, SRES will provide all students with an innovative learning environment to master academic standards, to reach their full potential, and become productive life-long learner.
