Schools educate. We teach English, math, history, science, music, art and more.
Schools support. We nurture personal growth and development of our students.
Schools lead. We understand and deeply value our place in the community as role models.
Schools need to be safe havens. Children from all backgrounds and experiences come together with the shared purpose of learning and growth.
At MGRSD, we condemn in the strongest terms the violence being perpetrated against people of color in cities and towns across our country. We recognize and condemn the long history of racism rooted in the deepest facets and structures of our society. We are committed to the nonnegotiable values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We will continue to listen, to learn, and use our roles as educators, leaders, mentors, and protectors of children to be active participants in the fight for social justice. We vow to invite and inspire our students to do the same.
Schools are essential. Education is a human right, and there is no place for hate and intolerance in our schools, in our local community, in our country. As educators, our mission is a great one- to equip students with the knowledge, compassion and bravery to become active world citizens. We embrace the enormity of this mission and understand that growth is a process. All of us have much to learn and do.
With respect and commitment,
