Diversity & Inclusivity past events

We had a fun time commemorating Dia de Los Muertos with the NW Denver community last night! It began at La Raza park with dancing, celebrating, ceremonial clothing, candles, sage, magnolias, and we continued by walking through Troy Chavez Peace Garden and through the streets of NW Denver, finally to end at St. Dominic’s Parish with more dancing, music, food and celebrations!

Family Night was a ton of fun with a great turnout! The CREW community spirit was wonderful during the chili potluck, hosted by the Diversity and Inclusivity Committee. There were 13 different dishes to try, a raffle for gift certificates to various restaurants in the neighborhood, and healthy snacks contributed by the Health and Wellness Committee.

After dinner, the Book Bar, along with our own before-and-after-school crew, headed up by Anne Heerdt, ran an awesome kids activity focused on the WORLD CARES trait of Respect for Ourselves and Others. The kids’ artwork, “We’re All Wonders,” up in the school hallway, is a display celebrating our differences.

Meanwhile, the adults learned about the CAP (Child Abuse Prevention) training that will be given in the classrooms this month. If you were not able to attend the CAP talk but would like to know more about the program that will be in the classrooms in the next couple of weeks, please see the handouts.
