    Race and Equity

    In response to the murder of George Floyd and the subsequent demonstrations throughout the country against police violence, Catharine Blaine's Race and Equity Team has created two presentations for students.

    The first, Current Issue - Racism (open Race and Equity folder at bottom of page), provides information and definitions about Mr. Floyd, protests, the Black Lives Matter movement, institutional racism, and more. This presentation was used in staff-led online conversations open to all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students on June 4, 2020.

    The second presentation, Actions to Take (open Race and Equity folder at bottom of page), gives students and families a list of resources and suggestions for internal and external actions that can be taken by anyone to increase their own understanding of institutional racism, ways to support the African American community, and direct actions to take to promote racial equality.
