February 13, 2023 - February 17, 2023
This was a strange week here at school! Between the full moon, then the delay and ice, then a fire drill today when it’s 55 degrees out—it’s been weird. Add in the fact that we have one week until break and well, it’s a lot. With that being said, the kids are still getting it done! The teachers have been giving them opportunities to get some energy out so they can then focus in class. Yesterday I came upon a group of 7th graders with Mrs. Pike who were playing musical chairs in the Great Hall during TAC time. It was adorable and just what they needed to be able to get back to business! The nice thing about our school is the teachers truly understand the middle school brain.
As you know, February is Black History Month. Here at CompSci we have been learning from our Student Equity Committee each morning. The students have written short biographical essays or Black Americans who fight or have fought for Social Justice. The committee has also placed notes of encouragement on lockers to give us all a life. Great work!
Today and next week there are multiple celebrations happening today and next week, as we recognize students who are achieving. We are holding Mindset celebrations and academic celebrations across the school. So many kids are doing the right thing so we want them to know how much we appreciate all the hard work.
Enjoy the weekend,

CREC’s Statement of Diversity and Inclusion
“Capitol Region Education Council (CREC) is an intentionally diverse social justice organization whose members work to acknowledge, respect, and empathize with people of all different identifiers, such as race, socioeconomic status, gender identity and expression, education, age, ability, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, language, nationality, and religion. In accordance with CREC’s mission of equity, excellence, and success for all through high-quality educational services, our staff and students commit to participate in and support ongoing equity and inclusion programming through curricular and co-curricular offerings, professional learning, and local and national partnerships. Moreover, CREC staff and students strive to understand and confront the symptoms and causes of systematic oppression—ranging from implicit biases to micro aggressions to discriminatory policies, practices and traditions—that benefit privileged groups. While at CREC, staff and students commit to affirm and honor the lived experiences of others, to willingly challenge inherited beliefs and ideologies, and consequently learn, grow, and serve.”
