A Note from the principal
Black Lives Matter at School Week
Historically the month of February is Black History month. Last school year Durham Public School Board approved a resolution recognizing Black Lives Matter (BLM) at school. Schools across DPS will be participating in the movement. You can view the DPS resolution in the link below. Anytime we discuss big ideas with little people, we consider age appropriate language and conversation and this will be no different. I have included a document highlighting the language we will be using with students as we discuss and review the Principles of the Movement for Black Lives. (Please see link below.)
What you can expect at Easley is for our students to engage in classroom conversations around recognizing and celebrating diversity, valuing and recognizing that everyone has the right to be safe and happy and to express their opinion, and everyone has the right to be treated fairly. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's classroom teacher or school administration.
Family BINGO Night
Join us this Thursday, February 6th from 6-7:30 PM for a fun night of bingo, pizza, and prizes! Participants will each get 2 bingo cards to play. There is no cost to participate in this event. We will have pizza, drinks and assorted snacks until we run out. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
This year we will be using Bingo Night as an opportunity to help our fellow Durham families who have been displaced from their homes in McDougald Terrace. We will be collecting donations of the following items to be delivered to the Parktown Food Hub for distribution to the displaced families. If you are able, please think about donating. Here are some of the items that are still greatly needed:
Snacks (Chips, Granola Bars, Fruit Snacks, etc)
Ramen Noodles/Cup Noodles
Microwavable Meals (Mac-n-cheese, Chef Boyardee)
Paper Goods (plates, bowls, cups, forks, spoons)
Quart Size Ziploc Bags
Pampers & Pull Ups
