Our students all engaged in a two-week learning and discussion series around the 13 principles of the BLM@School Organization. All discussions were grounded in children’s literature, using text such as: Jed’s Barbershop, Julian is a Mermaid, The Other Side, The Colors of Us and The Skin You Live In, to name a few.
In the spring of 2021, we held focus groups with our Black and African-American students, as well as our Hispanic/Latin@ and Native American/Indigenous students from 3rd – 5th grade. We discussed positive and negative experiences they have had because of their race, as well as ideas for how we can improve as a school. Please see our summary of feedback.
