"We're On The Winning Team"
Level 1+ World Language School
Our theme for this school year is
“We’re On The Winning Team”.
When we work together towards a
common goal, we allow individuals
to bring forth his/her skills and talents
while coordinating efforts of other
team members to produce a
desirable outcome. James Ward
School consists of several teams
(students, parents, administrators,
lunchroom workers, guardians,
community members, etc.).
We must all learn to trust one
another, make decisions and take
risks, and cooperate for the success
of our students and our school.
Teamwork enhances our
skills of coordination and communi-cation. It forces us to see the
BIGGER picture and celebrate
successes (both of individuals
and of teams). Together we can
make our game plan for this winning
Welcome to 2016-2017
We're on the winning team!
