inclusive DEC 9: ISW Family Traditions POTLUCK TONIGHT
  Inclusive Schools Week is an annual, nationwide, celebration of Miraloma's year-round efforts to promote and build inclusive, welcoming school communities that embrace and support people of all natural and diverse abilities, sociological and cultural backgrounds. Our kids are involved in lots of fun activities this week and we hope you will talk to them about what they're learning. But family can participate in these simple ways:

Family Feast TONIGHT December 9, 6 - 8pm: Come visit Miraloma-at-night and enjoy a meal of shared dishes from our families' kitchens. Bring something simple or share a meal made traditionally in your family. Decorations provided by our very own Special Day classes!

"Sharing Our Gifts" Art Project: If you haven't already, please take a moment to view the kids' 2015 ISW art project designed by Helga Brace. Each child has shared a gift and they're very insightful! The installation is hung on the wall outside the auditorium (across from the library).
And if you're looking to help out, we still need a few kind folks to help us clean up after the potluck Wednesday evening.
For more information about the week's activities and ISW in general, visit our web page.

See you soon!
