Principal Kim Jones-Riley

Dear W.Y.S.O.E. Community,

As we embark on another transformative year at W.Y.S.O.E., I am reminded of the guiding beacon that illuminates our path: “Dream Big”. This statement is not just a motto; it embodies our collective aspirations, commitment, and the direction we set for our students, staff, and community.

Develop into Future Leaders: Our mission starts with a strong foundation in developing future leaders. We are committed to implementing best practices in education and celebrating academic achievements. Our goal is to cultivate a learning environment where every student is encouraged to explore their potential and become the leaders of tomorrow.

Respect for All: Respect is a cornerstone of our community. We encourage our students to foster respect for themselves, our staff, and other adults through positive behavior strategies. It is through mutual respect that we create a supportive and inclusive environment conducive to learning and growth.

Engagement in 21st Century Learning: In an ever-evolving world, engagement in 21st-century learning is critical. Our curriculum is designed to ensure that students are not just prepared for the challenges of today but are also equipped to innovate for the future. We strive to provide opportunities for our students to engage with technology, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving daily.

Aspiration to Accomplish Goals: We inspire our students to dream big and aspire to accomplish their future goals. Through guidance, support, and encouragement, we aim to help each student identify their passions and pursue their dreams with determination and resilience.

Maximization of Learning through Collaboration: The power of collaboration cannot be overstated. At W.Y.S.O.E., we emphasize the importance of working together—students with peers, staff with parents, and the school with the community. By maximizing learning through collaboration, we harness the collective strength and wisdom of our diverse community to achieve remarkable outcomes.

In conclusion, our mission statement “Dream Big” is more than just words; it is a commitment to excellence, innovation, and community. Together, as stakeholders of W.Y.S.O.E., we have the power to make dreams a reality. Let us continue to work hand in hand, with hearts and minds united, to create a future filled with endless possibilities for our students.

Thank you for your ongoing support and dedication to our school’s mission. Here’s to a year of achievements, growth, and big dreams realized.

Warm regards,

Principal, Kim Jones-Riley
