World Culture Day: May 21st from 1-4pm

The Equity and Inclusion sub-committee of the PTA would like to extend a thank you to the teachers, paraprofessionals, and support staff of PS 130! You have done an amazing job all year of making sure our children feel safe, supported, and celebrated for the things that make them unique and wonderful!

The committee would like your help to continue that spirit with our second annual World Culture Day on May 21st from 1 – 4 PM.

The United Nations began recognizing World Culture Day in 2015 to “enhance the potential of culture as a means of achieving prosperity, sustainable development and global peaceful coexistence.”

We want to use our World Culture Day to highlight and showcase the diverse cultures that make up our neighborhood and the children that attend our school.  We invite the community to share their art, culture, dance, and food with our students. We’d appreciate your help in spreading the word in your classrooms and with your students’ parents. Save the date flyers will also be “backpacked” in students folders hopefully this week.

We also will be sharing a detailed volunteer signup sheet including food donations on Konstella. Feel free to sign up to volunteer on World Culture Day or just come, bring your family and friends, and show your support!

Resources for Transgender Day of Visibility

Hello Educators of PS130! The Gender Equity Subcommittee would like to share some resources for Transgender Day of Visibility on March 31, 2023.

TDOV is just one opportunity to do our part as allies and members of the LGBTQ+ community to celebrate and care for trans and non-binary folks. There are currently over 400 active anti-trans bills in the United States, many focused on transgender youth. Founded in 2009 by Rachel Crandall-Crocker, the head of Transgender Michigan, it is a day to show support by bringing attention to the accomplishments of trans people around the globe while fighting transphobia through information and education. 

We thank you in advance for sharing this day with your students. – Elizabeth & the Gender Equity Subcommittee
