Racial Equity Committee News

The Racial Equity Committee is excited to begin sending a monthly email with articles, activities, and resources around our year-long school wide theme, Brave Enough. In September we have been discussing how we are “Brave Enough to Be Me.” The following activities were shared with all teachers, and may be helpful at home as you follow up with your child on their classroom discussions.
