• JEDI Events

     

    Dear Echo Horizon Community,

    We are so thrilled to kick off another year of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) work here at Echo Horizon School. You can learn more about the meaning of the JEDI acronym, our mission, and our values on the Echo Horizon website. Enjoy the many ways to learn more about the ways you can get involved in JEDI here at Echo Horizon. We look forward to another year of continued learning and growth with you. 

    With Gratitude,
    Julia & Liza

    Dr. Julia Blount, Ed.D., Director of JEDI & Upper Elementary (she/her)

    ADULT LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

     

    JEDI Days


    In addition to incorporating JEDI into our classes and JEDI/SEL Block, Echo Horizon hosts four days throughout the school year where we focus on each letter of "JEDI" at every grade level. We end each of these special days with a whole school assembly and a parent/guardian and caregiver education and connection event. These are in-person events.

  • Critical Conversations

    We are thrilled to be a partner in Critical Conversations. Each Critical Conversation has a reputable guest speaker. Parents and educators throughout the US attend and learn together. These are virtual events.

  • COMMUNITY BUILDING OPPORTUNITIES

     

    Echo Horizon JEDI Committee


    This faculty, staff, parent, guardian, and caregiver committee works together to support JEDI programming, discuss current events, and work collaboratively on JEDI initiatives and policies at Echo Horizon.


    Our first meeting on September 19th will be a community-building event. We will brainstorm JEDI-related school policy questions that the JEDI committee is interested in researching, and then use the sessions that follow to discuss them. These are drop-in events, no RSVP needed.

  • Parent Association Affinity Spaces


    The Parent Association JEDI Committee supports a number of parent affinity spaces (FAQ). These affinity spaces host events and educational experiences for their members and/or students. This year, the JEDI team is also partnering with these affinity spaces to co-lead student-facing events on campus. More information will be coming to you from the PA JEDI Committee in the coming days, but we welcome you to go ahead and indicate your interest HERE!
