Living out their mission is the goal of Bement School teachers this year.
Superintendent Dr. Sheila Greenwood says each year they give their educators a theme and this year they want to live out their mission statement, which focuses on communication and creating respectful learners and leaders.
According to Dr. Greenwood, her staff came up with this theme and the focus on their mission statement is something they are continually going back to.
The expectations from schools, leadership, and teachers have greatly expanded over the years and Dr. Greenwood says their staff has taken to heart the fact they spent a majority of the time with students during the school year.
Dr. Greenwood believes their students are watching their staff very closely and she says it is important they are focused on practicing the things they teach.
