Note from the Principal

Dear Families of Hazeldale,

In light of what is happening in our country right now, I feel compelled to make a statement. As a human, mother, and an educator I have a wide range of emotions about what has happened and continues to happen to Black Americans. I do believe now is the time for change.

Racism has no place in the Beaverton School District or at Hazeldale Elementary. I stand with my Black colleagues, students, and families to say racism must end.

We must speak out and promote understanding through education to create a better, smarter, and kinder world. It is not enough to believe racism needs to end and Black students should receive an equitable education. We must have action steps. I know that the Hazeldale staff is committed to the following already, as is the new principal. There are likely more action steps that should be taken or revised.

  1. When incidents of racism come forward it will be addressed and parents will be informed.
  2. We will continue to add to library books and curriculums that represent Black voices, in an effort to help create a fuller richer picture of Black culture and lives.
  3. Staff will use culturally responsive practices to support academic access for Black students.
  4. Restorative practices and teaching behavior will continue to be the way we respond to discipline issues.
  5. An open invitation for Black families to attend the Parent Teacher Organization meetings and to participate in school decision making.
  6. Embedding school wide opportunities for Black culture to be celebrated and valued.
  7. Engaging in honest dialogue to confront our own implicit bias.
  8. Embedded Social Emotional Learning on identity and respect for diversity.

The Hazeldale staff continues to work on creating a loving safe environment where young minds can grow. Conversations about racism can be messy and uncomfortable. However if we are to grow as a community we must engage in uncomfortable conversations and be able to listen to each other. The first step in changing hearts and minds is to have difficult conversations and confront our own implicit bias. I am not an expert on race. However I am committed to bring in resources to support teachers and students. I am committed to listening and learning to be a better advocate. I highly encourage you to talk to children about racism. Here are some resources you might find helpful. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to share our commitment to educating young minds at Hazeldale Elementary.

Working with you for kids,

Angela Tran
