We are looking forward to seeing parents at the Back-to-School Meeting on Thursday, September 7th at 7:00 pm. We will be meeting upstairs from Central Branch in the Mount Baker Community Club. This is our first community event of the school year and we hope to see you all there. We will meet briefly as a group and then split up into class groups so you can meet with your child’s teachers and fellow parents. NEW THIS YEAR- We will have a limited number of spaces available for childcare during the meeting. The meeting usually ends around 9pm. If you need care please contact Wendy at 206-723-1187 (No kids at the meeting please (unless they are in childcare)). See you soon!
Parenting with Identity in Mind
Tuesday, May 9th 7-9pm at the Mount Baker Community Club- 2811 Mount Rainier Drive South Seattle, WA 98144
Adults only please.
Central Branch has hired Rosetta Eun Ryong Lee (https://sites.google.com/a/sgs-wa.org/sgsprofessionaloutreach/speaker-bio-1) to come and lead this workshop for families and neighbors. All are welcome. MBCC has generously donated their ballroom for the evening!
How do we learn about our various group identities like female, African American, Buddhist, homosexual, middle class, etc.? From whom do we learn the meaning of these terms? What messages have we internalized about ourselves and others? What are the differences that result in one person having a healthy self-identity and another person experiencing own-group shame and hatred? Learn how we can instill positive self-identity in our children and coach them to be positive influences on others’ identities. Together, we can co-create inclusive communities that work toward success for all.
