The Diversity and Inclusion Committee is committed to fostering a welcoming and supportive school environment for all of our students and their families. Our focus is on practical, non-academic initiatives that create a more nurturing place for our children to grow and learn. We support PPPS’s mission for each child to have opportunities to reach their full potential and to meet challenges as critical thinkers, effective decision makers, and creative problem-solvers.
We welcome ideas and input from all parents and guardians (and educators!) on how best to meet these goals! Members of the D&I Committee participate is whatever ways works best for them but are asked to stay connected to the committee through their chosen means of communication. Members are also asked to commit to attending 30-minute Zoom meetings on an almost monthly basis. We recognize that your time is valuable and thank you for whatever you can give.
The D&I Committee’s activities include:
- providing commentary on School Council initiatives with a focused diversity and inclusion perspective
- sharing resources that raise awareness, provide guidance, or learning opportunities
- developing events or celebrations that recognize the diversity of our students and their communities
- amplifying the voices of parents and guardians from communities that have historically not been heard
