Dyanthe and Shaquawn’s weekly letter

Dear Families, Monday, October 9th, is Indigenous Peoples’ Day — a holiday highlighting Indigenous peoples’ cultures and suppressed histories. Indigenous Peoples’ Day emerged as a direct challenge to the narratives that undergird Columbus Day — the federal holiday used to celebrate Christopher Columbus’ purported “discovery of America.”  Teachers are having conversations with students about the […]
