    Tree of Remembrance and Belonging Dedication:  The Student Diversity Council wanted a visible, actionable way  to acknowledge the presence of racism and injustice in our society, and demonstrate our school’s commitment to positive change and inclusivity.   The Tree of Remembrance and Belonging is a way to honor our nation’s diverse and beautiful people, and respond to the terrible and hopeful moments and events of the past few years. The Tree will stay lit all year in AC colors -- blue and gold -- as a testament to our school spirit and promise to continue “to glade the hill we climb” (Amanda Gorman). *Please feel free to add an ornament to the tree. I left materials and samples on the bench just inside the main entrance.
    Finally, please join us for a Community-wide Read sponsored by the Student Diversity Council.  They have chosen  All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely.  
    You can find a description of the book here:  Student-led small-group book talks will take place during the last week of February.  Maybe you would like to participate?  Be on the lookout for a Sign-up Genius link when we return from break!
