About the Inclusiveness and Diversity Committee
Dear P.S. 333 Friends,
P.S. 333's Inclusiveness and Diversity Committee (IDC) is a volunteer group of parents who advocate for and support diversity and inclusiveness in our school community. We connect parents, faculty, administrators, and outside organizations to create a culture of respect for all people. All MSC community members are welcome to be a part of this group; we are excited to get to know new people, and to include you in the important work ahead.
This short email includes our mission statement, serves to announce our first meeting, provides contact info, and shares resources that may be of interest. In future emails to our mailing list, we'll post about upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and further resources.
First Meeting October 15 at 5.30 pm (remote). All welcome! We will get to know new members, discuss plans for the 2020-21 school year, and identify attendees' priorities and concerns.

The MSC Inclusiveness and Diversity Committee (IDC) was created to work collaboratively to advocate and support diversity in our school community, by encouraging, facilitating and creating opportunities for students, families, staff, and faculty to grow in their own understanding of diversity, and to promote equality of opportunity for all. We believe children learn best from participation in richly diverse environments. Therefore, we are committed to ensuring that our school fosters an environment where all have a voice that is heard, valued, respected, and equal in shaping an inclusive and welcoming community.
Future IDC meetings
The IDC will email upcoming dates to its list and post in the school wide emails.
All 2020-21 meetings will be remote/on-line until further notice.
If you would like to be added to our (growing!) list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you'd like, let us know of your particular concerns relevant to the IDC, any special areas of interest or questions you have. It’s also always nice to know what grade your child is in, and how long you’ve been at MSC. You can write to our email, or reach individual IDC parents directly:
email@example.com (habla español)
Visit our great resources on the MSC website, including:

We also share interesting articles, events and links in our email updates. Let us know if you have resources to send to this group, or to post on the website tab.
There will be many opportunities to get involved this year, including helping facilitate meetings, networking, identifying new resources and planning upcoming events. We look forward to meeting you!
