September E-Newsletter

Message from Superintendent
Greetings to Pine-Richland Students, Parents & Community,
Over the past few months, we have been engaged in a strategic planning process to set direction for the next four years. We thank the staff, parents, and community for participating in this process. We also give special thanks to the students who gave their insight and perspective. The strategic plan is in the final stages of completion. The mission, vision and values form the foundation for the work.

A mission statement is designed to capture the core purpose of an organization. Similar to the entire planning process, it was our goal to be clear and concise the language:
The mission of the Pine-Richland School District is to 
focus on learning for every student every day.
The vision is also an important aspect of this work. The vision - or picture of the ideal future - is a "literal picture" being revised by one of our senior students. The picture represents key understandings about the learning process. It will be widely published upon its completion. The mission and vision challenge us to strive for excellence in the educational program at Pine-Richland.

message by clicking here.
