You're Invited!

Last month ISD166 invited concerned citizens to discuss racial and bullying matters during a gathering in the Jane Minowski Conference room. While everyone present was grateful for the opportunity to speak and share stories, it was the consensus of the group that this good work should continue.

In that spirit, Cook County Schools is inviting community members to participate in four evening workshops dedicated toward continuous community building. The Community Storytelling Series is Education Minnesota's anti-racisim program known as FIRE (Facing Inequaities & Racisim in Education), and it provides an interactive, sustainable framework for developing a growth mindset in racial equity for all members of a school community.

⭐️⭐️On January 15 the community is welcomeed to take part in the second Community Storytelling program: Story Circles. Two more storytelling events are scheduled for the evening of January 22 and february 2, and all events are two-hours long. They run from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. These events are FREE and open to all.⭐️⭐️

During each session, Education Minnesota facilitators will coach participants through a series of engagement activities in order to support individual and group development. It is the overall goal of FIRE and ISD166 to help our community come together through the sharing of our own stories.
