A Weekly Message from Superintendent Avery
November 29, 2021

As November comes to a close, I want to share with you the results of an activity we did with staff back in August.  Before we began talking about our mission, motto, and goals for the year, we worked to discover our common values.  As a staff, we work together to make sure students are successful - in order to work together effectively, we need to discover what we have in common and values are a great place to start.  Here are the common values of Potlatch School District Staff:

PSD285 Staff Values

Do any of these values resonate with you?  We used these as a starting point to develop a new motto and choose areas of focus for the strategic plan.  Speaking of our strategic plan, we would like community input as we work through this year to develop a 5 year plan.  We have a starting point this year, but want to make sure that our plans meet the needs of staff, students, families, and our larger community.  Please watch for a survey to come out shortly after the new year.  We will ask for your input on some areas of focus and we will ask about your interest in attending a "town hall" meeting to elaborate even further.

Happy end of November and beginning of the December!
