I'm sure there are hundreds of definitions or ways to describe culture. Culture is found in every organization/group there is, it defines who you are, what you believe in and where you want to go.
Team Kid is at the core of our school culture at John Swett Elementary, the decisions we make are positive for kids and we always put students first. Finding your motto or hashtag is important, but first and foremost you must live what you say.
A couple of weeks ago I ordered a Roadrunner mascot costume from Anderson's and yesterday was the first day I wore it during morning drop off. Oh my gosh is all I can say!
Kids, teachers and parents went crazy! The biggest impact it had on people, was a smile on their face! Did wearing a Roadrunner costume have anything to do with our instructional program at school? No way.....but it makes people excited about school and want to join and support our school culture of Team Kid.
See some of the Tweets from yesterday below!
Vista Print is my favorite for banner creation, great prices and super quick!
Everyone wanted a photo op!
A Kindergarten student even decided to write about the Roadrunner sighting!
Parents taking photos + Tweeting from their cars!
