Malden Public Schools Celebrates Black History Month
During February and Black History Month, we must consider how we, as educators and families in a wonderfully diverse school district, will recognize and celebrate the significance of this month. We do this work mindful that moments that highlight the contributions of Black Americans should not be relegated to one month. Instead, February reminds us of the vital and ongoing work to ensure our black students see themselves in our curriculum and provides us an opportunity for all students to learn about Black History and contributions. It also emphasizes our need to create spaces in our schools and community so that all students feel seen, safe, included, and celebrated. Our work as anti-racist educators and families, coupled with the multiple crises facing our nation, demands this intentional work from us.
Malden High School Family Survey
As part of the planning to bring in grades 9 and 12 for hybrid, in-person learning on Monday, March 22 and then grades 10 and 11 on Monday, April 5, we are asking families to fill out this very simple survey to let us know if your child is going to return for in-person learning.
We have a family survey, available in eight languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian-Creole, Chinese, Vietnamese, Arabic and Amharic. This survey is very important and we encourage all families to take the survey so we can prepare the best way to educate the students of MPS. The survey will remain open through Wednesday, March 3rd. If you do not fill this out, your school Principal or designee will contact you. We hope you take this time to give your feedback. Thank you.
