Brand Roundtable Updates

Ariana - the Communications Consultant - convened stakeholders of parents, board and staff to discuss how the brand has evolved from the school's conception. We looked at:

  • How can we connect Leader in Me and Core Values?
  • What is the brand mantra?
  • What is the vision statement? Do we even need one?
  • What brand elements does the school lack?

The Brand Roundtable will meet again in March.
