Dear Wildwood parent community,
The mission of the Wildwood PGO has always been to provide equity and access to enhanced educational opportunities for all families in our community. We support and empathize with the experience of feeling many complex emotions at this difficult time. We know how hard it can be to have conversations with our children about the challenges facing this country, and especially the challenges that people of color face every day.
The PGO is committed to working with educators in our schools to create opportunities for instruction and conversations that promote social justice. Our efforts must go deeper than ever before so that we can support and educate our children to be active members in improving our society. To this end, we pledge to continue our support of professional development efforts to help teachers grow in their learning about how to talk to children about racism and how to teach social justice. In addition, we will form a committee to gather resources for parents and guardians, which will support them at home as they have conversations about racism with their children.
This committee will be planning programming for the fall to further support the Wildwood community. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As our superintendent, Dr. Morris stated, “there are really no words for the deep grief we feel for our community and our nation.” As we continue to live in isolation, let us not feel isolated. May we be here for one another.
The Wildwood PGO Leadership
