True learning only happens when student’s feel supported and celebrated in the classroom and when everyone in the school community can be their authentic selves—no matter their race, immigration status, sexual orientation or gender identities.

We will not fall for the politics of division and distraction. Instead, we will continue to join together to ensure all students have everything they need to learn, grow and thrive.
