Parent Center Tip of the Week #3

Why talk about racism?  Talking about racism helps to answer children’s often hard questions about race and unfair treatment of people based on the color of their skin.  It can also help us all learn what we can do to make our diverse world equitable and fair for all. Join us as we watch: The Power of We- A Sesame Street Special.  Learn to be ‘upstanders’ to unfair treatment based on skin or fur color.


 That’s it for this week’s news from school, have a tigerrific evening.
