Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School has chosen to "celebrate differences" as their iKind theme for next year. Wouldn't it be great for the whole community to support the Middle School in this effort?
Join us in helping them, let's all work to make the Moraga community a model of kindness and inclusiveness.
Welcoming Schools is making their short film What Do You Know? 6 to 12-Year-Olds Talk About Gays and Lesbians available on You-Tube. This documentary is 13 minutes long and might be a great way to start a conversation about respect and bullying prevention with your family.
Additional resources for teachers and families are available here:
