"Everyone is born into the world to do something unique and something distinctive, and, if he or she does not do it, it will never be done," said American educator and activist Dr. Benjamin Mays.
This quote embodies Consolidated High School District 230’s purpose: To help identify and develop the fullest potential of each student so they realize their unique and distinctive potential.
The concept of developing a growth mindset and grit permeates the work of the School Board, administration, staff, students and community. We are dedicated to the notion that everyone can learn. Everyone can master a new skill. Everyone can overcome obstacles.
Throughout this school year, each member of the District 230 family is focused on pushing boundaries and on developing into the people who do that unique thing Dr. Mays says we were born to do.
This edition of the Bi-Annual newsletter is dedicated to that kind of learning. We hope you will read about the experiences of our staff and students with the same sense of awe we have when we get to celebrate their stories. And, we hope you will see that your support is an important part of making this possible.
Together, we teach. We support. We coach. We advise. We lead.
With our whole heart we continue to make an impact. An impact that many times we don't see the end result of. An impact that shapes our world. An impact that becomes the next artist, engineer, author, craftsman, mechanic, lawyer, scholar or teacher.
Together, we create a legacy. We impact their future. This is who we are.
