The celebration of Inclusive Schools Week offers an opportunity to highlight and celebrate the progress our school community has made in providing a supportive learning environment to all students. We want to acknowledge, celebrate and show our appreciation for the hard work and commitment of our community in creating inclusive environments.
We celebrated Inclusive Schools Week December 5th through December 9th. Class discussions and activities were held that focused on the importance of inclusive environments. Some of these class discussions focused on the section of our district mission statement: “All Learners Welcomed, Accepted As They Are.” Meaningful discussions were held to highlight this very powerful statement.
