Last year, our school’s Equity team, comprised of parents and teachers, created a bibliography of books that both embrace cultural differences while also celebrating our common humanity. Our selections will be used to guide social emotional activities and discussions in all of our classrooms. In September, our K-2 classes will read The Day you Begin by Jacqueline Woodson. This is a wonderful story about a young girl who is starting a new school and it highlights our 3C’s of being caring, curious and courageous.
In support of Latino Heritage month all of our classes will be reading Island Born by Junot Diaz.
Please consider purchasing these books to read and discuss with your child at home.
