As parents, we know it takes an entire community of caring adults to help us raise our children up to adulthood. The COVID restrictions placed on us during the pandemic mean that many parents are unable to leverage the broader support of the community of neighbors, friends, family members, teachers, coaches, child care providers, and more.
Breck recognizes and celebrates November as Native American Heritage Month. This month gives our school community an opportunity to do much-needed narrative change work, to learn about the culture and history of Indigenous peoples in the United States, and to grow in our allyship with the original peoples of this land.
