School vision and mission statements and moonshot thinking

The Moonshot Thinking video that we watched for class is all about casting away fears and doubts and focusing on possibility. In other words, it’s about getting away from the ‘yes buts’ and instead asking ‘why not?’ and ‘how can we?’ When we do that, we can accomplish great things.

Do our school vision and mission statements reflect this sense of possibility? In her blog post yesterday, May asked how we get beyond the buzzwords and educational jargon when we create these statements. I’m curious how we also make these statements drivers of possibility that energize school communities to move forward in needed directions. Thoughts?
