Sixth-graders attend middle school diversity conference
Two Tenacre sixth-graders attended the AISNE for Schools Middle School Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Conference at Belmont Day School last week. The goal for attending students--our future leaders--was to learn to advocate for both themselves and others. They spent the day in "conversation, connection and collaboration" learning how to unite social identity groups "as part of a common cause to increase equity and social justice." They ended the day with a dynamic presentation from poet, educator, The New York Times bestselling author and Newbery medalist Kwame Alexander. More than 300 students come together from 31 schools.
