  • A Message To Our Community

    By in Announcements on

    GW Community –

    Yesterday evening we began to hear reports of a series of shootings in Atlanta, and as the tragedy unfolded, we learned that the majority of the victims were Asian women. It’s notable that the press conferences today were marked with hesitation by the police to call yesterday’s shootings a “hate crime.” But in the end, regardless of whether or not the shooter meant to target Asians, he perpetrated hate on the Asian community.

    It is easy to deflect and attribute this violence to a lone actor – isolated from our larger society. But doing so diminishes the racism and xenophobia the Asian community experiences and ignores the role of White supremacy in yesterday’s murders.

    The entrenched system of White supremacy that exists in our society breeds the type of self-claimed power and distorted beliefs that spurred yesterday’s violent acts. I believe our community is committed to dismantling these systems and shaping a future for our nation that is inclusive and equitable and that honors all experiences. It is incumbent on our entire community to not only make space to hear and understand the Asian experience, but to also reflect and respond with grace to being called-in when we do or say something to perpetuate anti-Asian racism.

    As we rebuild our community in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will have the opportunity to both heal and grow. We will be returning with vastly different stories to share of our time at home. To our Asian community, we understand that your experience with this pandemic began with blatant anti-Asian racism that has grown over the past year. As we heal from this pandemic, we are committed to ensuring that our Asian community feels safe, welcome, heard, and supported. Anti-Asian racism will not be tolerated.

    Over the course of this year we have had deliberate conversations in our classrooms around White supremacy, racism, and what it takes to be an anti-racist. We will continue these conversations with our students, especially as we seek to meaningfully redefine what it means to be a “Patriot” in our global society. Our School/Community Liaison will be hosting Family Culturally Responsive Engagement sessions in the month of April to hear from our Asian community about their experiences at GW and how stereotypes and racism have impacted their student’s education. In our faculty Culturally Responsive Education professional development we will continue to discuss and dissect personal biases, racism, and power dynamics and the impacts they have on our students.

    We remain committed to ensuring that our students have a safe learning environment – physically, emotionally, and intellectually. To our Asian community, we stand with you in solidarity.

    Sincerely,
    Kristin Waters, Ph.D. | Principal
    George Washington High School

    INCREASED IN-PERSON TIME AFTER SPRING BREAK
    New guidance from Denver Health (along with existing guidance from CDPHE) has made it possible for more students to spend time together in class and across cohorts (the groups of students who are in classrooms together), as well as for adults to support more students.

    After spring break, starting April 6, all in-person students will attend afternoon ILB four days a week. However, much of our virtual faculty will remain virtual through the end of the school year. Students are still able to remain home on the days that they only have ILBs with virtual teachers. If you would like to change your learning environment option, please click HERE. You do not need to do anything if you would like your learning option to remain the same.

    CLUBS AND EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
    We are now able to offer curricular clubs and activities. Groups will be limited to 25 in-person participants and students may choose only one club/extra-curricular activity in which to participate. Club sponsors will be communicating with club members this week about in-person options that will begin after Spring Break. Students participating in in-person clubs or activities must be signed up for in-person learning. To change your student’s learning option, please click HERE. You do not need to do anything if you would like your learning option to remain the same.

    CHOICE OF STUDIES TIMELINE
    When we return from Spring Break students will begin the process of choosing classes for next year. On April 6 our Academic Advisors will present to students during Community Learning Seminar. They will provide an overview of the Choice of Studies process and distribute the digital course catalog. On Thursday, April 8, we will host a virtual Choice of Studies fair during Community Learning where students will be able to ask teachers about courses for next year. On Friday, April 9, the course request forms will open. Forms are due on April 16. Advisors will be hosting regular office hours throughout this whole process and will consult with students about their options for the ’21-’22 school year.

    CURRENT SOPHOMORES – LEARN MORE ABOUT THE IB DIPLOMA PROGRAM
    Attention current sophomores! It is time for you to be thinking about your classes for next year, which includes the opportunity to participate in the IB Diploma Program.

    The IB Diploma Program provides an international education where young people become better equipped to handle and manage the complexities of the world. The Diploma Program challenges students and prepares them for today’s rapidly evolving world with an emphasis on the development of skills rather than mere memorization of content, including effective communication and critical thinking. GW students can participate in the full diploma program or just take individual IB classes. Check out the virtual info sessions below to learn more!

    WELL-BEING, LEARNING, AND SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH SURVEY
    Thank you to our students, families, and staff for taking the time to share feedback with DPS throughout the year. The feedback DPS receives informs upcoming district level decisions for student learning during COVID-19. In addition, school level survey results are playing a role in your school level continuous improvement efforts. Like prior surveys, the purpose of the March surveys is to understand how academic and social-emotional learning are going, to understand what supports are needed, to progress monitor data for crisis priorities and district strategies, and to plan for next school year. This new survey survey also gives students, community members and team members the chance to share thoughts about the search for DPS’s next superintendent. The student and community surveys will be administered March 10 through March 24 (students) and through March 26 for team members and community members. All students in grades 3-12 and team members will receive an email to their dpsk12.net account on March 10 to complete the survey.
