Students and staff gathered together in the common areaStudents and staff gathered in the Commons Area on September 6th to reexamine the school’s current vision statement. Mrs. Byther led the students and staff in a process which began with the definition of a vision statement and continuing with a vision writing session.

Various components of the presentation assisted the students in the process of writing an effective vision statement. The components included: Selected characteristics of an effective vision, how to craft a vision statement, identifying core values, determining the ideal school, and creating the vision.

Students worked individually, in small groups, and then with their advisory group, to write a total of five potential vision statements. The students and staff then received a ballot with the five potential vision statements and had the opportunity to vote for the most effective vision statement.

As a result, the new vision statement for REACH is, “At REACH High School, we work as a team to graduate as scholars while providing real-world learning opportunities for future goals.”
