When most people think of the word “team,” they probably think of athletics.

However, principal Jennifer Bustard sees the entire high school, including students, teachers and other personnel, as one big team.

That is why she is using TEAM as the 2017-18 theme.

“The theme for this year is TEAM Mona Shores — Together Everyone Achieves More,” she said. “This theme will take us back to our core values and show that in order to accomplish anything, it takes all people.”

This theme, which will be kicked off at the assembly this afternoon, encompasses the idea that everyone isn’t just individuals at the high school but a part of one family, or one “team.”

“The theme will help us show who we are and what we stand for,” Bustard said. “It includes the triumphs as well as the failures.”

TEAM Mona Shores includes more than just athletics, it includes all the opportunities Shores has to offer.

“Shores is a Triple Threat — academics, arts, and athletics,” Bustard said. “With all the opportunities offered to students at Shores, it really ensures that everyone has the feeling of being part of a team.”

Each year, the theme is used to help the school progress grow. The idea of TEAM for this year’s theme should help unify the school community and create a family-like culture at the high school.

“When we say team, we should think ‘in it together,’” Bustard said. “We should support one another and rely on one another to accomplish our goals.”

TEAM pushes everyone to change their mindset and think of everyone, rather than focusing on individuals, Bustard added.

“It is important to feel like you belong to a school community bigger than yourself,” she said. “We need to think about what’s best for the team.”

The idea of being a team is meant to create a bond among the students and create a feeling of togetherness.

Through the 65 different opportunities offered at Shores, it makes it possible for every student to feel like they are a part of something bigger than himself, no matter what a student’s interests are.

“The power of being a team can pull us together,” Bustard said. “Through our academics, arts, and athletic teams, we can take pride in what we do.”
