Dear Islander families,
As we celebrate Black History month in February, we thought it would be a good time to share with our families the work that the site-based Islander Diversity team has been completing during the school year. The team is comprised of both Islander staff and parents deeply interested in the topics of diversity and inclusion.
To date, the team has had four productive meetings. The results of these meetings has been to create four different groups to address diversity efforts at Islander:
· Daily Diversity Announcements
· Student Focus Group
· Staff Engagement Group
· Parent Involvement Group
Each of these groups has developed a plan for implementation during the Spring of 2016. We are very excited about these plans for the rest of the current school year as well as future years.
Over the next two weeks please take a moment to review the following video clips related to IMS registration. These short, informative clips are meant to provide answers to commonly asked questions related to the registration process. Please use these links as a starting point for your questions.
