The Oneida-Herkimer-Madison (OHM) BOCES Cooperative Board is exploring the idea of revising the organization's Mission and Vision Statements.
Since development of the current OHM BOCES Mission and Vision Statements in 2013, the needs of component school districts, local employers and the global workforce have changed rapidly.
The Board welcomes stakeholder input in helping to ensure that the Mission and Vision Statements continue to best represent the purpose, goals, services and programs of the OHM BOCES. A short, six question, online Mission and Vision Survey has been developed to assist the Cooperative Board in revising and redeveloping the OHM BOCES Mission and Vision.
Mission and Vision statements articulate an organization's values and goals. A Mission Statement is focused on what an organization is doing in the present and describes an organization's fundamental and unique purpose.
A Vision Statement is focused on what an organization will do in the future. It is an inspirational description of where an organization is going tomorrow and an extension of the emotions and feelings of its stakeholders.
The OHM BOCES Mission and Vision Statements Survey can be completed online by clicking this link: Survey. All survey responses are anonymous.
The Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES serves the following component school districts: Brookfield, Clinton, Holland Patent, New Hartford, New York Mills, Oriskany, Remsen, Sauquoit Valley, Utica, Waterville, Westmoreland and Whitesboro.

Via the "magic" of technology, 1st graders at GWF had a wonderful chat with Mrs. Claus! The students were treated to a story about how the Elves and Santa started working together (The Elves in Santa's Workshop.) They also learned some reindeer dances and had the opportunity to ask many thoughtful questions (Where is Santa now? How does Santa get to all the houses in one night? How do reindeers fly? Where did Rudolph get his red nose?).

Though we’re but a country high school,
Our name unknown to fame
To our colors we are loyal,
Our heritage we claim;
We defend the gold and purple,
Wherever we may be,
Our hearts forever faithful
To the old school in H.P.
The purple hue is royal,
The gold is pure and fine,
And both are king’s apparel
Ordained by word divine,
Therefore, royal are our colors,
To them we true must be,
To show we love and honor
The old school in H.P.
