“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
- Margaret Mead

Being global means having a willingness to learn about and understand a variety of cultures, perspectives, and experiences that may be different from our own. If we want our students to become productive global citizens who make positive contributions to society, it is imperative they remain open-minded, empathetic, and respect each others’ differences. Students need to be aware of how both local and global issues impact our local community and how their actions can impact those around them.

As a district, we recognize that our students need the skills necessary to be global citizens for the rest of their lives. These skills will be crucial for our students to learn as they prepare for actively engaging with others in the diverse world. Students that embrace diversity and positively influence their community by celebrating and appreciating differences will be an asset to the 21st
century workforce.
