Just in case you didn’t know, WE have a powerful, impactful, and critical affinity group for our girls of color in grades 3rd-5th here at Lafayette. She Reigns, girls of color group has been powered by myself Rashida Mosby, school counselor, and several other magical women on staff here, since 2017.
The unique position of our girls of color as the “magnified minority” in a majority white setting, was the primary passion behind the launch of our program for girls of color here at Lafayette. We’ve met and interviewed women of color leaders in science and literature, explored our own personal family history and stories, performed for the chancellor’s office, delivered a powerful original play during black history month for our school community, and MORE. As we transitioned to distance learning last spring, our passion and purpose continued. We put together letters for healthcare workers, discussed and engaged in self-care practices most relevant to our collective and individual cultures and kept the learning and celebration of our cultural practices, achievements, and contributions going strong!
This year WE are BACK and ready to re-connect and get to know our new 3rd grade members. We will meet on Friday’s from 2:30-3:15 starting THIS FRIDAY 9/18. Personal invitations will be sent via email to parent contacts. If you DO NOT receive a letter and invitation and would like your girl of color to participate, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Also, if you have any questions about the program, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Together, we progress
