Message from SEED Program, 3/22

In support of our Mission Statement, Palm Valley School is committed to providing an educational environment that actively promotes diversity and equity, fosters cultural competence, and seeks to instill in students and faculty an appreciation for and understanding of the range of human differences.

Zac Hewitt is facilitating next week's SEED seminar for interested faculty, staff, families and community members. Please join us Tuesday, March 27 from 6 PM to 9 PM. The topic is "Masculinity." A light dinner will also be served! So that Mr. Hewitt may plan ahead, please R.S.V.P. here or to zhewitt@pvs.org.

Please note that these meetings are for adults only. We encourage you to find ways to speak to your children about these topics, but our sessions are not open for children to attend. The National SEED Project is dedicated to creating conversational communities to drive personal, organizational, and societal change toward greater equity and diversity.

SEED seminars are facilitated by teachers and school staff who have been trained as SEED leaders. These leaders do not lecture. Instead, you will be led in experiential, interactive activities and conversations often stimulated by films and readings. Through personal reflection and testimony, listening to others' voices, and learning experientially and collectively, SEED equips us to connect our lives to one another and to society at large by acknowledging systems of oppression, power, and privilege—and challenges us to push for change. SEED values your voice so you can, in turn, better value the voices of your students and children.
