Saturday, 10/19, 10 am – 12 noon at Washington Middle School: 4th and 5th grade parents are especially encouraged to attend an important information session and Q&A on the major change proposed at Washington MS next year that will serve all HC students and attendance area students in a blended model from “STEM by TAF”, a non-profit partnership. This is tied to other significant changes being proposed by the district to discontinue the HC cohort for the Southeast middle school pathway (north end schools will not be affected). Please attend and bring your questions!
Tuesday, 10/22, 6 – 6:30 pm the PTA will host a discussion on the proposed HC changes and Washington MS/STEM by TAF model for all interested parents, immediately preceding the meeting listed below. Childcare is available, see below.
Tuesday, 10/22, 6:30 – 8 pm the Equity Action Teams and PTA will co-host a workshop, “Racial Equity in our Community” with Kyana Wheeler, M.Ed., MPA. Please join racial equity and organizational change specialist, Kyana Wheeler, as she helps our school community invest in a more equitable future.
What does it take to build an inclusive school and community for TM? How do we make sure all of our students and families are seen, valued, and heard? What role do you play?
Attendees’ answers to these and other climate questions will inform the framework and a path towards a more equitable school community.
The first 15 minutes will be a short PTA meeting including an update on school news and events from Principal Katie May.
Free Childcare with pizza for children ages 5-12 whose parents are at the meeting (childcare starts at 6 pm in order to also provide coverage during the WMS/TAF discussion). You MUST reserve your child’s place in advance – contact Ben Peterson: firstname.lastname@example.org
