Dear Families and Friends of Cascadia Students,

This academic year the Racial Equity Team are leading staff in learning more about and supporting the community and cultural backgrounds of all its students. We recognize that many families celebrate holidays or participate in cultural celebrations that may not have been acknowledged or known about by staff or other students in previous years.

In effort to build a stronger school community, we would like to coordinate a way to honor the traditions of each unique and valuable cultural or community experience or holiday.

As a first step to learn more, we’re hoping families will take time to answer the questions below. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts.

Question Title

* 1. What holidays or cultural celebrations are most important to your family and communities?

Question Title

* 2. If appropriate, would you and your student(s) feel comfortable seeing or sharing traditions, artifacts, or decorations regarding these holidays at school? Why or why not?

Question Title

* 3. Would you be willing to share traditions, artifacts, or decorations regarding these holidays at school with your student’s teacher and/or the Racial Equity Team? If so, please leave your preferred contact information below.

Question Title

* 4. If you or a family member are not able to come to school to share your traditions provided in this survey with teachers or the Racial Equity Team, would you feel comfortable with the Race and Equity team researching and sharing information regarding your family's or community's traditions or holidays independently?
