The diversity of our community is a true gift to St. Luke's School. It enriches us now and prepares our children to thrive in a diverse and varied world. As a result of the school's commitment to diversity, we have many types of people and families in our community, and this affords wonderful opportunities for rich conversations with children.
At times, though, we have all been perplexed and unnerved about how to talk to children about issues of difference. Following a discussion about this at a Diversity and Community Building Committee meeting, parents suggested that the school periodically produce and distribute a newsletter about how parents and children might discuss specific aspects of diversity. We will continue to create these newsletters addressing other topics throughout the school year.
