Seeking community involvement + leadership for Black History Month events

Hello from the Home and School Council Equity Committee!

Together with the administration, we are organizing a school-wide event for Black History Month for Howard students and families. We want this event – which will be held at the end of February – to be a meaningful celebration of Black history and culture that strengthens connections among students and families in our community.

We’re looking for leadership from community members! In order to hold a meaningful and relevant event, we are seeking input from the diverse Howard community, in particular from those with a connection to Black communities.

If you’re a Howard community member and would like to get involved with this event, please reach out. There are lots of ways to be involved, including, but not limited to:

  • Joining the equity committee
  • Attending a January meeting with the school’s equity committee, administrators, and the Home and School equity committee to plan this event
  • Leading this event, with support from the school’s admin and Home and School equity committee
  • Offering connections to presenters (or providing suggestions of possible presenters)
  • Privately offering feedback to the Home and School equity committee regarding the process and/or content

If you’re interested in learning more, please email the Home and School Equity Committee via the contacts listed here:

Thank you!
