May is always- even pre-pandemic- a season of big change for us as school leaders and in our school communities as we prepare to transition our students to their next chapter. This May, we’ll be marking the one-year murder of George Floyd.
It is a month that invites us to unpack how we have and how we will commemorate crises we’ve gone through, and how we memorialize school community members (administration, students) who have died.
Join us for a two part learning experience to surface the challenges, complexities, and experiences of commemorating and memorializing crisis, trauma, death, and joy, recovery and growth in and with our school communities.
PART 1: DISCOURSE
A panel of educators (teacher educators, teachers, administrators, and clinicians) sharing the challenges, celebrations, and experiences creating and holding space in schools after loss (e.g. student death, natural disaster, school shooting).
