Our DEI Symposium, hosted on Wednesday, February 23, was an enormous success that allowed our students to explore the topic of "belonging" with the theme "Being and Belonging: Exploring Affinity and Identity to Support All Community Members in Being Their Authentic Selves." Below, you can find a link that includes a recap and a variety of resources that were used throughout the symposium.
 
 
School Hat ImageEach year the Senior Class donates a gift to the school at graduation. The Class of 2022 has chosen to help beautify campus by planting 28 trees (podocarpus graciliors aka fern pines) along the fence line of the upper campus that will not only provide a future shady spot for studying and gathering with classmates but will also help to create an aesthetic that will eventually block the refinery from sight when on the west campus.
 
Planting 28 trees that represent 28 seniors comes at a cost so the Seniors will be selling baseball caps to raise funds for this gift to the schools. The goal is to plant the trees in the spring and in order to make that goal happen, the fundraising starts now!
 
Every Wednesday at lunch students can find fun wellness-promoting activities hosted by the wellness team! Each Wednesday, we will be holding fun activities that promote relaxation, mindfulness, and overall wellness. So we encourage students to come by, learn something new, get inspired, meet a new friend, and join Ms. Gacad, or Ms. Morse under the pergola at lunch for Wellness Wednesday!
 
Please feel free to email Ms. Gacad at [email protected] with any questions or suggestions!
We follow LACDPH guidelines for K-12 schools. For updated information, visit the LACDPH website for the latest information and guidelines.
In addition to the professional development training that the faculty and staff have embarked on with Monique Marshall collectively, a handful of staff attended the annual NAIS People of Color Conference in conjunction with students that attended the Student Diversity Leadership Conference. This year’s theme was “Reckoning with Impacts, Rolling with Just Intent,” and focused on a common thread of belonging. These multicultural gatherings equip both adults and students alike with skills and strategies to develop a foundation of allyship and community.
 
We’d like to share a resource for talking to young children about race and identity adapted from raceconscious.org, with helpful strategies on how to engage children with conversations about difference. We extend our best wishes to you this holiday season and for a safe and healthy new year.
