During the month of December, Dr. Sandberg, our school counselor, led a faculty meeting on Student Wellness.
As part of our District Stategic Plan to: "Embrace and incorporate diversity in all of its various dimensions, and continue to build an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students and District stakeholders.", we melded a portion of Diversity into our focus on Student Wellness.
In order to bring this message to the students, the book The Big Umbrella by Amy Bates was purchased for each Multicultural Class Library. In addition, a follow-up activity led students to find ways to include others in various social moments during the day.
If you visit our school, you may notice magnets of the book cover scattered throughout the building. This was done as a visual reminder to recall the message in the story.
