Notes from Community Meeting about Addressing Racism and Prejudice in our Schools

Over 45 Parents, students, and teachers got together on April 18th to discuss two essential questions:
1) What do you think needs to be done to better address prejudice, racism, and peer mistreatment at Cornell Elementary?
2) What type of support from the school do you need related to this topic? What type of support from the school would be needed to put your ideas into action?

Attached are the notes from this meeting with the feedback divided by stakeholder groups. At a meeting this month, we will continue the work of looking at next steps. Thanks so much to all who were involved in that discussion as well as those of you who have reached out individually. It is a community effort and there is much work ahead.

Principal's Message

Dear Cornell Families,
I want to extend my wishes for all new and returning families to have a wonderful year filled with social and academic learning. Certainly, it is a privilege to be a staff member, student, and/or parent at Cornell. This school year promises to be student-centered with a focus on the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of your child. As educational partners, we will make a positive contribution toward the success of each Cornell student. Always remember that our goal is to keep the well-being of our students in the forefront of our minds. With our eyes on them, together we will always make the best choices and decisions for their continued success.
Heather Duncan, Principal Cornell
