Student Equity Committee- 4th & 5th Grade Students

We are working this year to implement a Student Led Equity Team. The overall mission of this team will be to give students the opportunity to have a voice in the development and planning of school-wide activities, events, and resources which will be inclusive for ALL students. With this being our first year, we will keep this committee small, with 10 student members, in grades 4th and 5th. Please read the flyer here for more information.
