What is DEI and How Does It Fit in PTA?
DEI Resources at Lowell
We follow the Long Beach Council PTA DEI Guide and Calendar in our PTA communications:
Lowell Log (subscribe here)
Our #VoicesOfLowell series celebrates the diverse stories in our school community.
We continue to advocate for more diverse representation within existing school enrichment activities, such as Reflections, Meet the Masters art program, Second Step SEL curriculum, Authors & Illustrators, Career Day, and Scholastic Book Fair. We aim to be as inclusive as possible when planning and naming events so all families, students, and staff feel welcome.
Diverse Classroom Libraries & Activities
Stories serve as “windows and mirrors” to explore new ideas and cultures, challenge norms and stereotypes, and foster empathy and understanding.
We support LBUSD efforts to diversify classroom libraries and curricula through the FAIR Act Book Collection, Scholastic's Rising Voices Library and Voices of LBUSD. Additionally we promote LBCPTA's Diverse Books Lists as additional resources for school and home. We will continue to advocate for more diverse books and activities for our Lowell classrooms and library.
