Wed. 2/15 6:30pm to 8 at Hosford Middle School
   Talking about race with our middle schoolers can be hard.
   How will we as a community do this, with and for our youth?

Join other Hosford parents on Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Hosford Library for Hosford’s first parent forum to collectively explore the role of race in our lives and in our school. Parents will be invited to give input about what they hope to get out of this ongoing work in order to shape future plans for Winter/Spring events. The conversation is being sponsored by the Hosford Site Council, and will be facilitated by a PPS staff member from the Office of Equity and Partnerships. Hosford parents join several other PPS schools in offering parent-focused opportunities to talk about race. Parents from Hosford feeder elementary schools are welcome and encouraged to participate.

Food & childcare provided.

In order to ensure we have enough food and childcare providers, please RSVP to:
