Dear Sheehan Families,
Last week we celebrated National Schools Inclusive Week. This year's theme for Schools Inclusive Week is “Kaleidoscope of Friends." If you look into a kaleidoscope, you see an infinite array of patterns of brilliant light created by repeated reflection. And indeed education takes on a beautiful shape when all children belong and are valued as contributing members of our school community. This is the vision of inclusive education.
To celebrate Schools Inclusive Week at Sheehan, every class participated in an all-class read of the book The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson. The Day You Begin is a beautiful picture book that celebrates differences of people in the world. The classroom may be one of the first places that children experience these differences and the celebration of them. After reading aloud the story, classroom teachers engaged students in a class discussion around the following questions:
Have you ever walked into a room full of people who seemed different than you? How did you feel? What made you feel that way?
What is something that makes you unique?
To extend our discussion and celebration of inclusivity, our students shared and celebrated their own unique qualities with one another. Each classroom is creating a kaleidoscope of students' unique qualities that will be displayed next week throughout our school celebrating and sharing individual awesomeness!
The Day You Begin is a wonderful book that celebrates diversity! I highly recommend our parent community to read this book. FullSizeRender.jpg
This Wednesday, December 12th at 7:00 PM at the Hanlon Elementary School, Psychologist and Hanlon parent Dr. Emily Mohr will facilitate a parent discussion beginning with a focus on Jacqueline Woodson's, The Day You Begin, the book read in all Sheehan classrooms last week.
I hope you will join us for a parent discussion to help you and your child on topics of inclusion and belonging in honor of Inclusive Schools Week.
