Parent & Community Strike Solidarity
Wed, Feb 20 9:21am
Thornhill Elementary

Dear Thornhill Parents,


As our teachers prepare to go on strike starting on Thursday, February 21, we--two parent-led solidarity committees--want to make sure you’re aware of our organizational efforts so that you can participate in the strike in the way that best fits your family.


#1 We have a Solidarity School, which will take place at St. John’s Church during regular school hours. We are still in need of volunteers to help care for our students, so please sign up for a shift if you are able here. If you are in need of childcare, you may sign your child up here. Pam previously sent a message and FAQ about the Solidarity School on Konstella here.


#2 Want to show your support on the picket line? We also need folks to show up for picket line shifts, which will--among other things--help provide nourishment for those on the line.


Please check out both links to see where/how you can help out!

Join the Thornhill Elementary School Families Facebook group if you would like to connect with members of our community more frequently, ask questions, or share your thoughts.
