What does it feel like to belong at Westchester? How can I be a bridge to belonging at Westchester? These are some questions that the students and staff will be exploring this year. We want to invite our parents to be a part of this ongoing learning that can open up conversations about the impact that our thoughts and actions have on others.
The teachers started building knowledge about the bridges and connections that come from building bridges. Our focus for this learning will be a schoolwide expedition, “Building Bridges to Belonging.” During daily crew meetings, students and teachers will focus on stories that share how bridges make connections between places and people. Once there is that connection, there is an opportunity to know and understand others differently. In the coming weeks the students will also learn about Ruby Bridges and the impact that a young girl can have on others around her. Stay tuned for more information about a special event on November 14th.
