2021-2022 Community Education Series

Learn, Explore, Be Inspired

The Epiphany School Community Education Series offers an annual slate of diverse educational opportunities for the adults in our school community—parents/guardians, grandparents, friends, and neighbors.

In keeping with our strategic plan, the Epiphany School Community Education Series enhances our authentic and inclusive community by welcoming diverse thought, sharing our expanded vision and mission, and providing creative and engaging educational opportunities for our community. We welcome ideas for future programming and we will continue to collaborate with neighboring schools and the Epiphany Parent Council to develop and offer events that meet our community’s interests and needs.

2021/2022 Equity & Inclusion Series:
 

April 26, 6:00-7:30 pm: Virtual Presentation with Lynn Lyons, Helping Your Family’s Emotional Health: Do’s and Don'ts As We Move Forward. Please RSVP to attend and receive Zoom link(In partnership with neighboring independent schools).

ABOUT THIS EVENT: The emotional health of our young people was suffering prior to 2020. As we now emerge from two years like no other, parents need strategies for instilling skills their children and teens need to confront and reduce the negative impacts of anxiety, stress, and depression both at school and home. Using creativity, connection and energy, parents will learn how to increase their child’s flexibility, support the tolerance of uncertainty, and emotionally and preventatively equip themselves and those they love as we all move forward. This event will be co-sponsored by Epiphany School, Bush School, Spruce Street School, St. Thomas School, The Little School, and Epiphany Early Learning Program. Epiphany School and co-sponsoring schools' staff members will also have a special session the follow day. We hope you can join us for this Virtual Community Education event, Zoom link will be shared here the week of the event. 

May 5, 6:00-7:00 pm: Dr. Bettina Love, We Gon’ Be Alright, But That Ain’t Alright: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom. Please RSVP to attend and receive Zoom link(In partnership with neighboring independent schools).

ABOUT THIS EVENT: Dr. Love discusses how Hip Hop Civics Ed, when linked to the framework of intersectionality and Abolitionist Teaching, creates a space where Black lives matter and analytic sensibilities are nurtured to engage youth in the work of fighting for visibility, inclusion, and justice. Her talk will end by calling for us all not only to teach students about racial violence, oppression, and how to make sustainable change in their communities through innovative and radical civic curriculum, but also to expose youth to the possibilities that come with envisioning a world built on Black joy, creativity, imagination, boldness, ingenuity, and the rebellious spirit and methods of abolitionists.
