Mission and Goals

Lewis Middle School Vision Statement

Vision: We have a vision to see a learning community where students are seen, loved, challenged, and supported so that they can realize a future of their dreams.

Mission: Our mission is to deliver on the sacred promise of public education for every one of our kids by:

  • Creating and maintaining safe learning environments that emphasize belonging, student voice, self-regulation, restorative practices, clear expectations and risk taking
  • Taking extraordinary efforts to know our students as unique learners and humans
  • Delivering powerful daily instruction
  • Communicating crystal clear success criteria for learning
  • Providing multiple means and opportunities for students to demonstrate mastery
  • Teaching both foundational and future-ready skills (4C’s-Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity)
  • Infusing relevance into classrooms by connecting their learning to the world
  • Meeting students where they are at, but pushing for, expecting to see, and celebrating their growth
  • Pursuing, equipping and leveraging parents as partners in their child’s learning journey



You Matter, so…

  • Every staff member, student, and parent is worthy of respect
  • Our beliefs and actions emphasize that “Those kids are our kids”
  • We celebrate successes well and refuse to give up on anyone


We Matter, so…

  • Relationships come first: We value each and every interaction with one another (Regulate→ Relate→ Reason)
  • We work collaboratively; Our collective efforts will yield more progress than individual brilliance
  • We work hard, but don’t take ourselves too seriously; We laugh with one another

What We Do Matters, so…

  • We pursue excellence together
  • We we make sure students get what they need, even if that means providing variable levels of challenge, support/ re-teaching
  • We take professional learning seriously; Adult learning fuels student learning
  • We set ambitious goals and measure our progress towards them
