    SEED Seminar

    SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) Redwood Day is one of a growing number of schools across the globe participating in the 35 year old SEED Project, founded by Peggy McIntosh, at the Wellesley Centers for Women. SEED participants seek to examine our own lives/backgrounds and to learn about others in order to create a community where all members are supported and valued. Participants engage in activities, readings, and films that focus on diversity and connection. Learning more about ourselves and listening to each other helps create and support a more balanced, equitable, inclusive and understanding community. SEED is open to all Redwood Day faculty/staff and is co-facilitated by Jodi Freedman and Ash Black. For more information, please contact Meredith Spencer, Director of Equity and Inclusion.

    Accountable White Allies for Racial Equity (AWARE) Virtual Meeting

    AWARE is for white-identifying adults committed to fighting for racial and social justice. AWARE provides a supportive, open community space to learn, take anti-racist action, and dig into challenges as we aim to embody antiracism in parenting and our communities. To do this work effectively, we need to consistently reflect on our identity and place in systems of oppression. AWARE members aim to address our own unconscious biases and take an active role in undoing racism in our communities and ourselves. This parent/guardian group is modeled after our White, Antiracist Educators (WARE) group for faculty/staff. Zoom link will be published in the Redwood Day Weekly. Please contact Brooke Abola or Diana Pasquali, Co-facilitators or Meredith Spencer, Director of Equity and Inclusion with questions.

  • Black Literature Read-In Week

    We continue celebrating Black Heritage at our 2nd Annual Black Literature Read-In Week for Grades K-5. Volunteers were invited into K-5 classrooms to read a book celebrating Black culture and history written by a Black author. Heritage Literature Read-Ins are co-sponsored by the Diversity in Action (DIA) Committee and Office of Equity and Inclusion in partnership with the Library.
  • Penguin Day

    Our 1st-grade friends learned about penguins which included writing an informational report and making a sock stuffy. Students participated in penguin-themed activities in literacy and math; they had a penguin-style snack and used their courage and confidence to present their penguin reports to the class. Our first graders worked hard to gather information about their specific penguins with iPads, reading literature, and watching scientific videos.

The event included student readers, speakers, performances by the student rock bands, an edible books bake sale (benefiting our 8th graders’ graduation party!), and pizza for all.
