Strategic Planning

February 2022- Rondout Valley High School (RVHS) students recently designed posters that incorporated the Rondout Valley Central School District's new Vision, Mission, and Values statements. The statements are as follows: Vision: Our students will grow into critical thinkers and lifelong learners with integrity, confidence, and compassion; Mission: To create an inclusive, welcoming educational community where all students can find their purpose and achieve their goals; and Values: diversity, kindness, creativity, and growth.   

Students in Jake Maloney's Advanced Studio in Computer Art class were given artistic freedom to create their posters, keeping in mind the school’s branding efforts as well as the essence of the overall school community. The Strategic Planning Committee reviewed and voted for its favorite submission, which will be used in branding material throughout the school buildings in the coming months. 

While each designer displayed an impressive creative ability to represent the District, congratulations are in order for Grade 12 student Eleanor “Ellie” Gonzales for designing the winning poster. At the February 22 Board of Education (BOE) meeting, Ellie explained her process to the BOE and attendees. RVHS Principal Jessica Torok, Mr. Maloney, and the BOE members all showed their appreciation of Ellie and her design. 

Mr. Maloney is thankful to the committee for letting his students work on this project. “Ellie did a fantastic job and gets all the credit for putting this all together and coming up with the design,” he said at the BOE meeting.
