This year’s leadership of the Bridger Equity Committee would like to invite you to participate in our first community meeting. We are hoping that Bridger community members will attend who are interested in making a commitment to come to monthly meetings and be involved in projects and events regularly this year. The meeting will be in the Bridger Library on October 2nd from 6:00 - 7:30pm Childcare and food will be provided. Spanish translation is available.
Portland Public Schools has made a commitment to racial equity and social justice stating, "We believe in the fundamental right to human dignity and that generating an equitable world requires an educational system that intentionally disrupts - and builds leaders to disrupt - systems of oppression." Community members interested in joining in on this work should come with an understanding that inequities exist and desire to improve the educational system for all children.
We have identified three areas of interest to address this year:
1. Supporting Students Who Are Falling Behind
2. Supporting Immigrants
3. Supporting LGBTQ Children and Families
If you have questions feel free to reach out to Kit Murray (first grade parent) at email@example.com.
With parent-teacher conferences just around the corner, it is important to know that PPS offers free interpretation services and other resources for our linguistically diverse families. If you need an interpreter for the conferences, which will be held Nov. 25-26, let your school know.
