Message from Mrs. Richardson

Dear York Avenue Families,


I hope your first full week was a smooth one!


NPSD recognizes the power in respecting, understanding, and celebrating human differences to build community, inspire ideas and develop shared experiences.


The Parents in Equity Group was formed in 2019 to help facilitate communication between schools in the pursuit of cultural proficiency and equity for all of our students and families. This group of parents and administrators work together to continue to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for all families at every building in our school district.


If you're interested in joining the P.I.E. group, please reach out to York Avenue's parent rep, Megan Briggs, mbriggsis@gmail.com.


Thank you to everyone for joining our virtual Home & School meeting. It was great to hear about all the wonderful events coming up and the many volunteer opportunities.


Warmly,


Dipa P. Richardson

Principal
