Have you ever made a promise to someone? Can you recall someone making a promise to you and they didn’t follow through? We all have memories of promises fulfilled and heartache from promises unmet. We all recognize the importance of promises. A promise is a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen.
Rush City Schools is making a bold declaration in our updated and revised mission statement. We worked extensively with school board members, administrators, parents, students and teachers in developing our mission and belief statements.
Our mission statements reads, “The promise Of Rush City Schools is to create global citizens who are lifelong learners.” Isn’t that a bold declaration? We promise to evaluate all our academics, athletics, and arts through this lens. This is a courageous step in the right direction as we continue to build on the legacy of educational excellence in our community and for our students.
We are all familiar with the old adage, “it takes a village.” To that end the following represents our belief statements that we have been created for our system:
• Rush City Students choose to accept, believe in and challenge themselves and others.
• The Rush City community will encourage and support students academically, emotionally and socially.
• Rush City staff will promote student growth through care, collaboration and empowerment.
As you read this article you are one of the three key components of our belief statements. So please join us in fulfilling our promise so that it becomes a promise fulfill. Please feel free to reach out to us to help support us throughout this school year.
Looking forward to a productive school year as we ready our students to be lifelong learners in a competitive world.
