For the Antiracism DEI Corner:

MLK Jr Week: 


Kendy Alvarez, Lewisburg's mayor, will be speaking Thursday Jan. 20th @ 7pm at Bucknell.  Her remarks are titled: "My Ancestors' Wildest Dreams." Kendy will share some of her story, including how Dr. King’s “I have a dream” speech was influential for her father’s dream in immigrating her family to the US from Trinidad when she was five years old.  This event is open to the public; masks are required.  More info here.  




More Scholastic resources about MLK Jr:  For older readers.  For younger readers.
BOOK DISCUSSION WITH THE DEI COORDINATORS...
Every few months, we will be providing you with an opportunity to dig deeper and learn more about all that antiracism entails. The PSA Antiracism and DEI Coordinators have developed a booklist which focuses on racism and the experiences and voices of our BIPOC (Black, Indigeneous and People of Color) communities. We hope to spark a conversation and promote understanding with these reading recommendations. We know our work as an organization – and as individuals – doesn’t end there. We believe we are stronger together and welcome you all to begin this year's first book recommendation:
 


If you have no time to purchase and read the whole book, not to worry, there's an option for you. You may be interested in checking out a quick BOOK SUMMARY or LISTEN FREE at your leisure. This book can be found wherever books are sold.

We will be hosting a book discussion via ZOOM for those interested on Wednesday February 23, 2022 at 8pm. More details to come.
Questions are always welcomed; we can be reached at [email protected]gmail.com

  • Weather permitting, we will still be going outside for recess.  Hats and gloves are helpful to provide warmth and an extra layer of comfort for students as the temperature decreases.  On days that we have snow outside, students will need boots and snow pants to play in the area off of the blacktop on our playground.
 
  • Parents if your child has been fully vaccinated you can send in the proof of vaccination to the school nurse.  When students are fully vaccinated (2-weeks after their second shot) they will not have to quarantine if they are a close contact as long as they have no symptoms.

  • Just a reminder for families that the weather is changing daily and it's helpful to send students with hats and gloves on a regular basis.  When snow comes, students will need boots, snow pants, hats, and gloves to play in the snow.

As an independent 501c3, the PSA Executive Board voted to suspend the By-Law that specifies PSA members must have a student attending school in the Lewisburg district for the 2021-2022 school year. So if your child is e-learning, homeschooling, attending cyber, or going to private school and you still want to be involved, all are welcome, permitted you continue to reside in the district.
