TTU Mission Statement

Good Morning Boxford Families,

I am excited to let you know that through a collective effort we have finalized our vision statement for the Tri-Town School Union and that we are embarking on another collective effort to begin the development of a Mission Statement.
A vision statement gives an organization direction and is about what we want to become.  As a result, we have rooted our vision statement in the social-emotional and future-ready discussions that we have been having all year long via the two research articles that were sent earlier this school year:

TTU Vision Statement

The Tri-Town School Union believes in nurturing a dynamic learning environment where creative thinkers and innovative problem-solvers develop the empathy, resilience, perseverance, self-management, and kindness needed to positively impact the world.

Now we get to embark on developing our mission statement and we are going to collect the data in two ways:

1) This week, you will see an area in the lobby of your school (or other high-traffic area in your school) where your principal has designated a space for you to complete a “Post-It Note” which answers this question, “The mission of the Tri-Town School Union is…”

2) We are going to also offer an online version of the same activity using a padlet.  If you click on this link, you can also participate by adding an online Post-It note which answers the same question –

To provide some guidance for you, here is what to think about in terms of a Mission Statement (citation below):

The mission statement drives the organization. It is what you do/the core of the organization, and from it come the objectives and finally, what it takes to reach those objectives.

Mission statement questions look like:

  • What do we do?
  • Whom do we serve?
  • How do we serve them?

Looking forward to reading all of your responses!
