2019-2020 Family Education Series
Learn, Explore, Be Inspired
The Epiphany School Family 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 Family 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.
- January 30, 6:00-7:30pm, Diversity/Equity Leader, Rosetta Lee: Lee speaks on “Inclusion in the Early Years: Why, What, and How.” Folk wisdom tells us young children don't notice differences or have any biases, yet research is telling us otherwise. What are age-appropriate ways to develop intentionally inclusive and identity-conscious children? Co-sponsored by The Bush School and Epiphany School.
- February 27, 6:30-8:00pm, Screening of “The Upstanders”: The newest IndieFlix film produced by Scilla Andreen (producer of “Like,” “Screenagers,” and “Angst”) is a documentary about resilience and the power of peers to end bullying. “The Upstanders” is the 3rd in a trilogy of films about resilience, mental health, kindness, human connection and belonging. Appropriate for ages 10 and up. Co-sponsored by Epiphany School, Epiphany Early Learning Program, and The Bush School, held in the Great Hall. PUBLIC WELCOME!
- March 4, 5:30-7:00pm, ES Family Math Night: Join us for our annual Family Math Night to celebrate PI DAY (a little early) and the joy of numeracy! This is an evening for Epiphany School families and student(s) to engage and learn together while playing number games, tackling math challenge stations, and experiencing learning activities.
- March 26, 6:00-7:30, Caprice Hollins: Well-known speaker and co-founder of Cultures Connecting, Caprice Hollins, Psy.D. will present on “Talking with Children & Youth about Race.” This event is co-sponsored by a number of local independent elementary schools (including Epiphany School) and held at Giddens School.
- April 2020 (date, time TBD), Epiphany School Edible Book Festival: In the past two years we have seen this event bring reading and eating together in such unique—and delicious—ways. This is a wonderful opportunity for student-driven, parent-supported creativity! Stay tuned for more information regarding the date and time of this event.
- May/June 2020 (dates, times, and topics TBD), Alison Park of Blink Consulting: Alison Park consults with and trains independent schools on a wide range of topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. She will be on campus for several days this spring to work with faculty/staff, families, and the board of trustees. An evening event for parents/guardians will be sponsored by Epiphany School and The Bush School and held in the Great Hall.
