From Lisa Newlyn, Principal
祝您新年快乐,身体健康 – I Wish You a Happy New Year and Good Health in 2021!
And what a first week of the Lunar New Year it was. I hope that this newsletter finds you warm in your home, with internet and cell service in tack. I know many RGMS families have been without power for much of the week. Please know that if your student was unable to attend classes this week that our teachers will work with you to get caught up. Much of our work this week was asynchronous. Students should check Canvas, come to office hours, and email their teachers if they have questions.
The Robert Gray Black History Month Celebration is just one week away. As we prepare for our special assembly release on Friday, 02/26/21 @ 1pm, we want to give our students and families a chance to share their thinking, love, and support for Black Lives in our community.
Our goal is to uplift and celebrate Black Lives. Over the course of the past nine months, we've experienced the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement and witnessed the change of our local high school from Wilson High School to Ida B. Wells High School. Robert Gray has 362 students, staff, and community members committed to supporting our school as No Place For Hate.
We'd love to hear YOUR voice in what all this means to YOU. Consider posting a written essay or poem, a video, or artistic work that holds meaning and celebrates Black History.
Discuss what Black History Month means to you.
Compose your feelings and reflections over what's happened this summer.
Reflect on your new high school name, Ida B. Wells. What does that mean to you as a future graduate?
Share a song or poem that holds special meaning to you in honoring Black Lives.
Submit your compositions, videos, recitations, and all that good stuff here.
It's not too late to complete the Successful Schools Survey It is conducted only once per year and provides detailed global information about the experience of stakeholders at Robert Gray.
