Welcome to William Guy (W.G.) Sanders Middle School, the Home of the Golden Tigers. We continue our implementation of Leader in Me (LIM), creating an environment where the LIM practices and habits are embedded in all we do, helping students develop skills and self-confidence needed to lead successful lives in school and beyond. Continuing to grow in the LIM practices and habits will help as we say goodbye to last year’s theme, “Tigers Leading the Way to a Sustainable Future,” and hello to our new theme, “Leadership is….” This year’s theme is open ended because as we know, our students are all different with different strengths, different interests, and different talents. Because of the differences, leadership will take on a different meaning, different opportunities, and different rolls depending on the child. This year we strive to show each student what leadership means to them and how each of them can use their strengths, their interests, and their talents to develop and sustain the leader in them. Students will take active roles in their education and develop positive skills in the process. The goal of inspiring student leaders is to create a culture of ownership, collaboration and community in the classroom, the school, and in their community, developing skills they will carry over to adulthood.
This year our attention will be on giving students ownership of their education and responsibility through developing the leader in them to build accountable, confident individuals. As a Learning Team, we are committed to teaching leadership and life skills to our students while creating a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader, and we all can make a lasting difference.
We look forward to working with you as a Learning Team. Our aim is to accept your continuous feedback, provide resources, and model the expectations in fulfilling students' educational goals. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you. By working together, we will be able to reach the collective and individual goals that have been set for this year.
It’s going to be a great year!
