In keeping with our mission, it is our hope that the Equity and Justice Community Bulletin will serve as a resource for our strong home-school partnership as we all navigate the world around us.
As such, we want to support the adults in our community by modeling how to be an upstander via the types and topics of conversation we want our children to be able to have. While it is difficult to speak up in the face of injustice, it is now more important than ever. Thank you for your partnership.
