DEC 7-11: Volunteer for Inclusive Schools Week!
|Mark your Calendars, our Miraloma family will be celebrating Inclusive Schools Week, December 7 - 11th!
For those of you new to the celebration, Inclusive Schools Week is an annual, nationwide, K-12 celebration of our efforts to promote and build inclusive, welcoming school communities that embrace and support people of all natural and diverse abilities, and sociological and cultural backgrounds.
At Miraloma, ISW gives students additional tools to deal with feelings of inclusion, exclusion and differences, to build on our ongoing social-emotional strategies, and to support our bully-free curriculums.
Parent help with ISW is very much appreciated and needed. If this sounds like a program you'd like to be a part of, please check out the ISW parent opportunities below:
And please join us Wednesday December 9th, 6pm - 8pm for our annual ISW POTLUCK! Please bring a dish to share - ideally one that celebrates a family tradition - and sit down for a fun meal with your Miraloma Family.
- 5 - 8 volunteers to assemble ISW necklaces for the kids (Thanksgiving week)
- 4-5 parent volunteers for the Kinder's vision disability workshop (Monday December 7th 10-11am)
- 1 volunteer to help the authors with media set up for their assembly (December 9th 9am)
