Gracias, Thank you, Obrigado...

Hello 4J Family & Community,


I want to personally thank each of you for the amazing work you are doing for our 4J students and families. I see daily examples of strong relationships across differences, teachers providing inclusive curriculum addressing race, learning differences, gender diversity, ethnicities, cultures and other ways of being. Making the spaces we are each in, spaces of belonging for all of our students, families and communities fills my heart with hope for our present and future.


I continue to think about the system changes that we need to make spaces of belonging happen in all of our classrooms, office spaces, schools and district spaces. I know we still have a ways to go to make the sense of belonging happen for all of our students but the ones I see fill me with hope for what can be.


Please continue to think about what changes you can make to increase the sense of belonging in the spaces you touch.
