Trailblazer Times 1/11
Responding to events at the Capitol
We want to take a moment to acknowledge the history that unfolded before us in our Nation's Capital. We also want to acknowledge the emotions and reactions many of us experienced as we watched these scenes – disillusionment, dismay, disappointment, anger, fear, bewilderment, and many others. We know these events evoke intensely personal reactions for us, and we hope you can process them with family, friends, and colleagues. As members of the Banks Road family, we are confident we can lean on each other, listen to each other, and support each other. We encourage you to create that space for yourself and for your Trailblazer. Please note the bullet points below that may help you discuss these events with your child.
