First grade Safari Smarties created Classroom Mission Statements. Ask your child why we have mission statements and how we can Put First Things First to make sure we are living by our mission statements each and every day. Check out our mission statements below!
Last week, first graders identified their BIG ROCKS. From here, students have now moved into creating their own personal mission statements. Mission statements are based on Habit 2 - Begin with the End in Mind. The most effective way to begin with the end in mind is to develop a mission statement that focuses on what you want to be in terms of character and what you want achieve. Students are creating mission statements focused on how they want to be and what they want to achieve in school, at home and with friends. Ask your child about their personal mission statement. Are they working toward this mission each day at school, at home and with their friends?
