Jennifer Rosenthall - Principal
Degrees and Certifications:
During the 2019-2020 school year, our staff embarked on a journey to review our school’s mission statement. Through this process, we looked at what we believe to be our main priorities, what we believe the purpose of the school is, and what we value most about our community and our students. The staff took a trip down memory lane to reflect on the most impactful events both around the community and at MOE. Teams within the MOE community generated different statements, and we collectively chose one that we feel best embodies what we stand for and believe in here at MOE. I am excited to share our new mission statement with you… “Embracing differences, changing the world!” We are proud to represent such a diverse population where our students, alone, represent over 22 different countries. We are proud to have a community of learners who have the potential to make a difference in this world as they grow and develop. We know that we have all the tools and resources at MOE to make this statement come to life. I hope that you embrace our new mission and join us on what will be an incredible journey to come!
Over the past two years, our staff and students have been focused on growth mindset. After initially reviewing five of the most significant mindsets throughout the school, we have chosen a different one to hone in on each school year. Last year, our main focus was on perseverance, which turned out to be invaluable as the school year took twists and turns with remote learning. This year, we will be focused on empathy as we embrace our new mission statement. I will share a book with this idea at the beginning of the school year, and the teachers and our counselor will continue to coach our students throughout the school year on how we can continue to grow in this mindset.
I look forward to what promises to be an exciting year ahead! I know there are still many questions to be answered as decisions are being made for what the school year will look like on a day to day basis. I promise to keep you informed of any information that I receive or changes that might occur. Please know I am always an email or phone call away if you need anything! I am proud to lead our MOE community and know that we will continue to grow and shine because #weareMOE.
