Information from Our Counselor, Christie Thompson

During November’s guidance lesson, we talked about the social construct of “race” and discussed how people are more alike than different because we belong to one, big family called the human race! We also emphasized that it’s important to get to know people for who they are and not make judgements based on “race” or color, and we ended the lesson with students drawing a self-portrait that includes things that are important to them: family, traditions, customs, hobbies, favorite foods, etc.

Warm regards,
