A community tour

Our staff went on a tour of the community that feeds our school.  The local police guided our tour to give us background of the apartments, complexes and housing areas.

It was well thought out and meaningful.  We were able to ask questions and give feedback.  Lots of storied were shared.

This was very powerful.  Since I moved to this school district for its proximity to my house, I was taken aback how little I knew about this area.  Most of us had never done something like this before. We all left with a greater appreciation for our students and where they’re coming from.

Oh, and the bus driver wasn’t playing with us. She had us sitting quiet like the students.
