Black Lives Matter in School Week

Hello Corvallis Family,

February is Black History Month. No one's history should be relegated to one month of the year. As we work to incorporate all experiences and influences into our "everyday" history, it's important to highlight those who have been ignored and minimized.

Corvallis is coming up with new ways to hear our student voices. Please ask your student about the guests on the Pawsitivity Award Videos.

We would love to hear from our families too. If you have an experience or story that you would like to share with our students, please contact Ms. Piezas at mpiezas@slzusd.net.

Have a wonderful week!

"Protest is not the end of progress, it is the beginning. I wonder what would happen if all the big companies and celebrities who have showed support on social media came out and used their platform to let activists and protesters speak and be seen? I wonder what would happen if we allowed the outrage to have positive influence in our local government? What would happen if those in power defunded the police & dismantled their racist culture and corrupt power structures? Cities are burning, are you watching? I stand with Minneapolis. I believe in us. Change is gonna come."
