Black Lives Matter at School week is soon approaching and View Ridge staff and the Parent Equity Committee are working together to bring curriculum and resources into the school for the week of February 4th-8th and in the months ahead. Please look out for an update from Mr. Roos for more information on curriculum in the classrooms.
Look for Equity Team members in school at drop off and pick during the week of Feb 4th for an opportunity to buy Black Lives Matter in School and Black Lives Matter at View Ridge buttons to support growing efforts to bring more of a diversity and equity lens into our school programming inside and outside of the classroom. Buttons will be $1.
The Parent Equity Committee appreciates the work of our school and staff to bring the conversation into the classroom and are providing a few links below to support discussions at home and in your community.
We invite students, parents, and staff to wear Black Lives Matters shirts or black shirts throughout the week of Feb 4th. The Black Lives Matter at School movement started in Seattle in 2016, as educators and families came together to acknowledge that black students face structural racism that was historically built and is systemically maintained in our current institutions and social systems, therefore we must affirm that their lives, specifically, do matter.
