Welcome to the 2021 - 2022 School Year
Greetings Cohasset Families,
Welcome to the 2021 – 2022 School year. This year we are excited to focus our efforts as a school community on the implementation of the Cohasset Public Schools Strategic Plan, 2021 – 2024, which was created collaboratively by the entire Cohasset School Community. This plan aligns goals from the Cohasset School Committee, District and Building Leadership, and staff, and shapes our school improvement plans. Our mission states that “Cohasset Public Schools places students first. We provide an optimal teaching and learning environment by cultivating empathy, global citizenship, agency, inclusivity, and community engagement to empower students to realize continuous personal growth and achievement.” We will focus on teaching and learning, social and emotional wellness, resources, and communication and engagement, as we enact this mission in order to reach our vision to “Empower student to improve communities.”
Over the next three years we will create an environment that is focused on the whole student:
- We will encourage students to achieve their full potential socially, emotionally, and academically, as they embody equity, cultural responsiveness, inclusivity, empathy, and global citizenship.
- We will support student in developing agency (to act independently and make their own free choices) within an innovative and creative mindset.
- We will cultivate an environment of open communication, engagement, and collaborative learning opportunities among home, school, and community.
- We will support optimal teaching, learning, and leading through responsible funding that provides academic excellence, appropriate staffing, state of the art facilities, and quality instructional materials.
In conjunction with our Mission, our theme for this year is “Working Together to Place Students First.” We are committed to meeting students where they are academically and social-emotionally, and we will enact a student-centered approach to teaching and learning. Please never hesitate to reach out to me or to any member of the leadership or staff if you have any questions or if we can help your student in any way. Principals have either already or will soon send welcome letters with information regarding the start of school at each building. We are excited for the school year to begin!
