Mission Avenue Open is excited to announce and present to our school community our first strategic plan for the 2013 - 2016 school years.
Fifteen members from the community(local & Mission families) and school staff came together for two days and spent a combined total of 300 man-hours to formulate this plan.
Strategic planning sets the course for our next three years. Decisions made at this site will always lead to the success of this plan.
Below you will see the results of all the hard work of our committee. You can download and print your own copy from the file under Related Files. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact Kelly Timpson.
