'Think critically. Grow intellectually. Live with integrity.'

That's the vision statement Finneytown Secondary Campus staff developed to help deepen and enrich school culture. On Sept. 9, students took on the task of figuring out how to share that message visually.

Junior and senior high classes used activity bells to discuss how a school would actually apply such over-arching goals -- a life of integrity, deeper thinking -- to everyday life. Then they teamed up to create posters to line their school's walls.

"Vision was a word that people used, but it was not a point of real concern," said Secondary Assistant Principal Jen Dinan. "We had one, but nobody could tell you what it was. But vision is what we want to be, it's the goal. What we're talking about is what makes Finneytown Secondary Campus different from every other school -- what makes us special."

The students and staff will continue to expand the conversation through the school year. Stay tuned!
