We begin next week honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who today is still recognized as one of the most representative individuals of the Civil Rights movement. His communication around non-violent conflict resulted in fundamental changes in American society and transformed actions towards creating a non-bias world. My hope is that we can begin the week celebrating some of Dr. King’s passions and that they can provide us all with the courage to make a difference to become better human beings.
Recently a new community committee was formed; The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Committee (DEI). The committee’s drive is around promoting inclusion for all students. We support their launch in 2022 and look forward to working collaboratively with them. Their platform is focused around policy, communication regarding inclusiveness, parents advocating for their students, and ensuring that the school continues to strive toward being an inclusive and equitable environment for all students and families. Look for more information and communication in Thursday notes next week regarding the launch of the DEI committee. This year Bill Roberts has formed a Staff Equity Committee to drive our ongoing work around equity, increase understanding regarding culturally responsive teaching, and to enhance our practices to strengthen relationships between school and community. It is our vision that both committees will come together to create and implement a state of commitment that brings all people and creates an understanding that unites all cultures.
