We pride ourselves on being strong communicators, but I believe that we need shift our focus to actually connecting. We need to begin forming crucial connections now, not just with those who are already in our school buildings, but with the average Maple Valley citizen. I as a teacher hardly know any community members. If we want their buy in, this needs to be fixed. We need to be deliberate in our connection. We need to be creative and find ways outside of the box to connect. We need to share our schools success with them and help them to feel that success through a connection. We need them to be a part of our future success.
How can we do this? What might a One Community logo look like?
