Principals Letter May 28th, 2021

May 28, 2021
Greetings,

The past few weeks have been a rollercoaster of events. Thank you to Christine Drago & PTA for organizing these events, and all our parent and staff volunteers that made it so successful. It has been great to see so many of our families and students.

One year ago, our community was in quarantine, many of us with low flying helicopters in our neighborhoods, and/or attending protests for George Floyd and the BLM Movement. While last spring feels like years ago, there is still work to be done in creating a more equitable school for our students and families. PS 20 is committed to revising our curriculum and instruction to reflect our students through representation and criticality. We are committed to continuing conversations with families and parent leaders around our need to be more culturally responsive and culturally intelligent. We are also committed to finding ways to integrate our students across their dual language and special education programs to meet and learn for others who are different. While we have come a long way, there is still tons of work left to do.

Saludos,

Las últimas semanas han sido una montaña rusa de acontecimientos. Gracias a Christine Drago y PTA por organizar estos eventos, y a todos nuestros padres y voluntarios que lo hicieron tan exitoso. Ha sido estupendo ver a tantas de nuestras familias y estudiantes.

Hace un año, nuestra comunidad estaba en cuarentena, muchos de nosotros con helicópteros volando en nuestros vecindarios y / o asistiendo a protestas por George Floyd y el Movimiento BLM. Aunque la primavera pasada se siente como hace años, todavía hay trabajo por hacer para crear una escuela más equitativa para nuestros estudiantes y familias. La escuela PS 20 se compromete a revisar nuestro plan de estudios y la instrucción para reflejar a nuestros estudiantes a través de la representación y la criticidad. Estamos comprometidos a continuar las conversaciones con las familias y los padres líderes sobre nuestra necesidad de ser más receptivos y culturalmente inteligentes. También estamos comprometidos a encontrar formas de integrar a nuestros estudiantes a través de sus programas de educación especial y de lenguaje dual para conocer y aprender para otros que son diferentes. Aunque hemos recorrido un largo camino, todavía queda mucho trabajo por hacer.

您好,

在过去的几周里,事情如雨后春笋般冒着。感谢Christine Drago&PTA举办这些活动,以及我们所有的父母和员工志愿者,使活动如此成功。很高兴看到我们这么多的家庭和学生。

一年前,我们的社区处于隔离状态,我们中的许多人在我们的社区中目睹低空飞行的直升机,或者亲身参加了针对乔治·弗洛伊德(George Floyd)和 BLM 运动的抗议活动。虽然去年春天感觉像几年前,但仍需要为我们的学生和家庭创建更合理和公正的学校。 PS 20致力于修订我们的课程和教学,以通过代表性和批评性来反映我们的学生。我们致力于继续与家人和家长领袖进行对话,以提高我们的文化响应能力和文化智慧。我们还致力于寻找方法,使我们的学生跨双语言和特殊教育计划融合,以便结识其他人并相互学习。尽管我们已经走了很长一段路,但仍有大量工作要做。
