Good Afternoon Park Hill Families:

I hope this message finds you doing well. Once again, I would like to reiterate my sincere appreciation for your support and generosity with our Dance Party fundraiser last Friday. It was a huge success, and we rely on this type of support to effectively run our programs and staff within the school.

In addition, and on a more serious note, I have noticed an uptrend with students picking up inappropriate language and racially insensitive concepts from social media, and bringing these to school to share. This includes videos seen on TikTok and YouTube, as well as TV programming more suitable for teenagers and up. As you might expect, this leads to curiosity within our students, especially when they do not know what a word or a topic means, and especially not having the proper context for it. Please take a moment or two and speak with your children around what they are watching and what they are taking away from it. This includes the use of racial slurs that they have heard as well as racially insensitive topics. In the fall, we will offer various parent workshops around these very topics and conversations. This is in support of our Black Excellence Plan and our commitment to equity and inclusion.  Please be on the lookout for more as we move into next year.
