An important conversation
Tue, Jun 2 1:53pm

Dear Meyerholz Families,

 

We are proud that the Meyerholz Elementary PTA strives to be inclusive and that we as individuals and as an organization, must reaffirm our commitment to diversity and inclusion.  Now, more than ever, we need to talk to our children about race.   We encourage you to utilize the many available resources to facilitate the conversation with your family. 

 

Here are some resources to start:
