A Note From School Leaders
For many reasons, Wednesday was a very challenging day in our country and our community. Whether or not all our students are directly aware of the specific events that happened at the nation's capital, and in state capitals around the United States, we know that the weight of these events are being felt within our community and cannot be ignored. Though no one can ever be fully prepared for these events, we as a staff had been building the foundation to prepare students to come together in the spirit of safety, belonging and conncetion. We had hard conversations and lead with love. Below are some resources we recommend, if this conversation is continuing at home:
Woke Kindergarten: Can You Spot the Difference (Images of contrast)
National Education Association: Talking to Kids about the Attack on the Capitol
Motherly: How to talk to your kids about the breach at the US Capitol
