On March 21, we will be recognizing the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. As a community we have a responsibility to address racism and work to dismantle it. We continue to have ongoing conversation and teaching about anti racism in classrooms. All students need to feel safe, respected and included. Please see our poster display for inclusion when you enter the school created by the GSA team under the direction of Mrs. McCabe.
