JES MissionJES Students are on a “Mission”

Students at Johnston Elementary have been immersing themselves in Leader in Me since the beginning of the school year. There are many elements in the LiM process and having each home room develop a Class Mission Statement is an integral part. It allows the class to have a purpose, direction, and unity. The students collaborate to determine what will drive their class to success.
JES students in each homeroom individually listed the purposes of their class, how to best work together, and how they wanted others to remember that class. Using these lists as a guide, the students then had a class discussion and chose statements that represent everyone in their class. The sentences are written on a poster and signed by each student as a pledge to honor the statement.
When asked how the students use their statements Mrs. Martinez shared, “My students begin and end each day reciting their Mission Statement. They refer to it during the day if there is conflict or to highlight a teaching moment.” Developing the techniques of collaboration are one way JES students are preparing to be graduates of Edgefield County School District.
