This summer the WSF board embarked on a journey to define our vision of success for WSF and the coming school year. This started with a conversation about our shared member identity, why we joined, and what keeps us coming back. Our founding purpose and mission were articulated by our founders in 2012 and remains true to this day.
MISSION: Support the educational experience of WFM students, promote parental involvement in the WFM community, and foster a relationship between WFM and the wider community.
The “why” of WSF was defined for us but the “how” was not. We are excited to share the WSF Core Values as we go into the 2017-18 school year together.
WSF CORE VALUES: ARC
In order to hold ourselves accountable in our work, we devised three core values that will guide our efforts as Board Members. Additionally, we hope that these values are embodied by all members who engage with WSF.
- Approachable: Open, available and reachable. We have taken on this role to be a resource and to facilitate communication, bonding and support. We have decided alongside you to give our kids a Montessori educational experience and we are excited to share this journey together.
- Resourceful: Knowledgeable, provide guidance and insight. We may not have the answer but we will do our best to help get you pointed in the right direction.
- Committed: Accountable, responsible. We are involved and committed to doing our very best to uphold our mission and to perform our duties with integrity and grace.
