A Letter from Our Head of School
Dear WSP Families and Friends,
The news of this week is in our hearts and on our minds. On Tuesday, April 20, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all counts in the murder of George Floyd. Within minutes of the verdict, we heard about the fatal police shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant and later in the week coverage of Daunte Wright’s funeral, a 20-year-old Black man who was shot by police during a traffic stop. We are thinking of the work that lies ahead. How do we move forward? What is our call to action?
As a white woman and Head of School, it is my job to continue to affirm and empower our school community to become a truly equitable, diverse, and inclusive community.
While our work toward anti-racism, justice, and equity is never ending, given the work we started this week with Alma Partners, the consultancy group who helps organizations “operate with soul, bridging the gap that sometimes opens up between our ideals and our actions”, I have renewed hope that our community will work together with love and care on a path for change.
Holding our nation, city, and WSP Community in the Light,
Head of School
