PS39's Diversity Committee was created to engage the entire school community, parents, children, teachers and administrators to promote a culture of respect, social justice, equity and openness in our school community. The work of the committee provides opportunities for all members of the community to explore topics and issues relating to diversity and inclusion. Through our work we will develop a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges we face as members of the PS39 community in undoing racism, fostering inclusion and raising the next generation of socially responsible citizens. We welcome parents, teachers and administrators to join us!
We are committed to engaging in this work with respect, curiosity, authenticity and vulnerability. We seek to build community and partnerships and maintain accountability to ourselves, our families and school in the process.
