Please join us for tonight's PTA meeting at 7 PM. You must RSVP to receive the agenda, related documents and link which will be shortly after 4 PM today based on the RSVP list.
Directly after the meeting, Meg Honey and Natalie Ivankovich will present on the Vote for Quotes Project and Prioritizing An Equitable School Climate at Valle Verde Elementary. This was first presented at Mrs. Perkin's December 11th Community Meeting and they are hoping to present to those that were not able to attend. Please see below for the origin/reasoning for the project - you can also see additional information in last week's Viking Voice:
Our school and district focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging has led us to reexamine the quotes by Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel) and Walt Disney, that adorn the front of our school. As you may or may not know, both men have challenging legacies with issues of racism. And if we are to truly achieve the goal of an inclusive environment that accepts and values ALL students, it is imperative that our buildings bear the words of accomplished and inspirational figures who model the same values of inclusivity and equity.
