Dear EMS Families,
During our last PTO meeting, families shared the desire for more resources and ideas that they could use with their children to continue, or in some cases begin, the conversation around racism and racial tension. Please find below resources shared by some of our faculty and other families.
- Track series by Jason Reynolds. A powerful series of books recommended by a 7th-grade mother. For her and her son this series was a springboard for many different conversations. (Jason Reynolds has written several powerful books about race.)
- Seeing White. A PodCast recommended by an 8th-grade student and parents as a resource for considering Whiteness.
- Additionally, our librarian, Carole Renca wanted to share the following information: Tips for discussing controversial issues, Resources for tackling unhealthy relationships, Podcast – Lifeline – books that Bridge the Divide and the suggested read, The Benefits of Being an Octopus. While there is no explicit reference to racism, the text surfaces many themes that provide important fodder for a variety of discussions.
Hello Students, Parents, and Teachers,
EMS math students participate in an online discussion with Verizon Environment Engineer, Benjamin Shaw. Students listened to his presentation which focused on how he uses math each day to help to positively impact our environment. They then interacted with him and asked questions.
