08 May Rising With Purpose
A couple of weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of touring one of Nashville’s newest charter schools – Purpose Preparatory Academy.
I was absolutely inspired by the students and the school leader’s commitment to ensuring each of her students is successful. I enjoyed walking the halls looking at data boards that illustrated student progress, listening to the morning motivation session, listening in on classrooms led by engaged and interactive teachers, and talking with the board’s president and leader about the school.
Right now, the school only educates kindergarteners. The plan is to add a grade each year. This means the school will serve kindergarten and first-grade students in 2015-16. I’m confident these little ones are being put on the path to success.
My favorite part about the tour? Watching the school’s informational video.
The school’s mantra is: “We Rise With Purpose Every Day.”
One thing is for certain – these students and educators surely do just that.
I’m inspired. My new goal is to rise with purpose each day, just like the kindergarten students at Purpose Prep.
