  • Celebrating Inclusion at the Mendell

    On Friday, January 20th, all 250 of our students engaged in conversations with their classroom communities about what it means to be an inclusive school community. Together students unpacked our shared "definition" of inclusion and reflected on times they have or have not felt included in our community or their neighborhoods. Students began to generate ideas about what we can do to make our community more inclusive for ALL students and families. It was POWERFUL to hear their reflections, thoughts and ideas about respect for human differences, justice and humility.
