Earlier this month, WFS faculty, staff, and students attended the National Association of Independent Schools' virtual People of Color Conference.
Xingyu Wang '24 shared that student participants focused on possible solutions to social issues and he enjoyed meeting with students from different areas to discuss important diversity topics. Upper school teacher Erica Childs, PhD and Head of School Ken Aldridge also had the opportunity to present about the (READ) Journal Groups (Read and Educate ourselves on Anti-racism and Diversity), a program implemented last school year for all faculty and staff.
Recently, seventh grade students prepared more than 250 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, a snack, and a piece of fruit for Wilmington's Sunday Breakfast Mission, which has served the homeless, addicted, and impoverished for over 125 years.
Over the last few months we have been in the process of filling two critical positions on campus: our new Director of Equity, Justice, Community, and Engagement and our Assistant Head of School for Academics.
