Laurel Hosts Common Ground Discussion With CCIS Community
On Sunday, June 30, CCIS community members gathered at Laurel forCommon Ground, a day of community conversation.
Common Groundunites people by a common question; allCommon Groundconversations have the same goal: to create spaces where meaningful connections are made and purposeful actions begin.
Greater Clevelanders gathered at over 100 events across our region on this day to come together, connect, and build community. Laurel’s discussion,Cultural Competency in the CCIS Community: Past, Present, Futurewas sold-out; Laurel, Hathaway Brown, Hawken, and University School all had voices represented in the space where perspectives were shared by those that had attended CCIS schools. In addition, current students, faculty, staff, and parents contributed their voices about cultural competency initiatives at their CCIS school. Finally, future goals and aspirations were recorded in order to keep CCIS schools working toward being a place for all students.
Laurel School looks forward to planning future CCIS school gatherings to continue to examine how we can be more inclusive communities for all families.
