“The name of our project is 'A Seat At The Table.' The project will involve all stakeholders of the learning community. Once a month, the school will sponsor a luncheon for selected students and their caretakers. During this time we will have roundtable discussions that cover topics such as incarcerated parents, deported parents, bullying and overcoming school anxiety. Students will be referred to the group discussion by parents, teachers, administration or SSPT or they may self-elect to attend. The discussions will be conducted in the 'Circle of Communication' model with lunch and special guest speakers.”
