JEDI at St. George's refers to our community's work for justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. In our first blog post of the 2022-2023 school year, Dr. Veronica Gillispie-Bell—trustee, parent and JEDI Task Force chair—reminds us that, "Change requires us to get uncomfortable," but also that, "We cannot exercise our core values (perseverance, integrity, respect and compassion) without also making St. George's a place where everyone feels them."
St. George's 5th graders visited the Tate, Etienne & Prevost Interpretive Center this week and received an opportunity to tour with, interview and learn from Leona Tate, one of the three girls to integrate what was then McDonogh 19 Elementary School (now the TEP Center). Dr. Kreutziger recounts the trip and the students' valuable experience, as well as Ms. Tate's challenge to stay positive and focused.
Today's blog post by StG parent and Registered Dietician Nutritionist Julie Canseco provides a plethora of recommendations and ideas to answer the age-old question of, "What should I pack my kid for lunch today?"
