Anyone who would like to learn more about creating a success culture in a school
June 18 at the Lynnwood Convention Center, 8:30-3:30
Because it is part of a three-year project funded by College Spark Washington, there is no charge
Registration is required if one plans to attend the full day session:
Cal Crow at the Center for Efficacy and Resiliency
Description: When the project funded by this College Spark grant began, most students viewed the school as a place to make up credits and get a diploma. Now it is viewed as a place to plan and create a successful future. Students who had low aspirations (“I’ll just get a job somewhere”) are now asking about the SAT and inquiring about college.
The school changed its mission statement to one sentence, which drives both student and adult behavior: Scriber Lake High School will ensure that all students become successful by helping them identify, develop and maximize their strengths, skills and talents.
A student designed a “creative” mission statement poster which was enlarged and laminated, and appears in classrooms and hallways throughout the school. This culminating event will focus on the project, called “Your Future Now,” that was designed to change the culture of Scriber Lake High School.
Workshops and speakers, and conversations with adults and students who have helped transform a school. Each attendee will receive a professionally bound book describing one school’s road to creating a success future.
