This chapter's goal is to bring parents together and work alongside with Fuguitt Elementary School to promote its mission statement and core values.
Inspired by "The Leader in Me" by Stephen R. Covey, the mission at Fuguitt Elementary is Preparing tomorrow's leaders today. . . This Leadership model is grounded in our belief that building cooperative relationships and nurturing responsibility, kindness and good judgment is the basis for creating a successful community of learners prepared for the 21st Century and beyond.
Fuguitt Elementary embraces the following core values and view them as a foundation of the culture within which we operate and a means by which to achieve our vision and mission:
Be Proactive – I am responsible
Begin with the End in Mind – I plan ahead and set goals
Put First Things First – I prioritize, I’m disciplined and organized
Think Win-Win – I look for alternative solutions
Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood – I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings
Synergy – I value other people’s strengths and learn from them
Sharpen the Saw – I take care of my mind, body and soul
