The "Mission Statement" of the Arcola School District
Our elementary art teacher, Alex Lugo, painted this on the wall outside the superintendant's office.
This mission statement is a product of a meeting in 2010 in which selected community members and students submitted ideas
and then came up with this final mission statement.
