How Can We Create Change?

Parker Families:

This week we held two community conversations about this year’s Essential Question—“How Can We Create Change?”  Three advisories, one from each division, came together to participate in the community conversation, which had five main purposes: 

  • Engage in community conversation and make these inter-divisional conversations part of our regular operation;

  • Model democratic practices and enact the 10th Common Principle of Essential Schools;

  • Increase student voice, ownership, and leadership;

  • Increase interaction among divisions;

  • Use this year’s Essential Question to think about the upcoming year both individually and as a school.

Community members also had an opportunity to become acquainted with the seventeen Global Goals for Sustainable Development.  On Monday, during the third module of the community conversation, participants will consider a “Teaspoon of Change” and create an artifact that will be incorporated into a piece of public art. 

Helping all members of our community learn together and from each other through conversation and dialogue is one way to Create Change! 

~Todd
