TITLE OF WORK:
A HERO'S SOUNDS OF MIND AND SOUL

 

ARTIST STATEMENT:
A hero doesn't have to be bound into the acts of a veteran or a 
community helper. For every instance of doubt, every troubled mind,
and all the deepest darkest downfalls, a mental hero is also needed 
to replenish those negatives with light and compassion.
Although quite metaphorical, words can build or break in an
instance, so the lyrics of those we listen to provide us the mental
heros who lift up our souls from the harshest of times.

  1. Welcoming All Students - Families are active participants in the life of the school, and should feel welcomed, valued, and connected to each other, to school staff, and to what students are learning and doing in class within an inclusive environment.    
  2. Communicating Effectively - Families and school staff engage in regular, two-way, meaningful communication about student learning.
  3. Supporting Student Success - Families and school staff continuously collaborate to support students’ learning and healthy development both at home and at school, and have regular opportunities to strengthen their knowledge and skills to do so effectively.
  4. Speaking Up for Every Child - Families are empowered to be advocates for their own and other children, to ensure that students are treated fairly and have access to learning opportunities that will support their success. 
  5. Sharing Power - Families and school staff are equal partners in decisions that affect children and families and together inform, influence, and create policies, practices, and programs.
  6. Collaborating with Community - Families and school staff collaborate with community members to connect students, families, and staff to expanded learning opportunities, community services, and civic participation.
