At the start of my welcome back I showed the staff the following video.
I went on to discuss 21st century skills, but more specifically what is now known as the 6 C's.

Unfortunately schools are often known for how they score on MCAs, ACTs or any other form of standardized testing you can think of. While Holdingford does well on these tests, I don't want us to be known for just that.
I want the students who graduate from Holdingford to be known as good communicators, problem solvers, good citizens with great character, creative, and collaborators. This will be OUR tree. This is what I want our school to be known for.
