Parent Resources for Talking about Racism

The recent killing of George Floyd, the ensuing widespread riots and protests may leave children with many questions and emotions.  These issues can be difficult to discuss with children in an age appropriate manner.
The Moultonborough School  and Community Charter has five pillars: Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Compassion and Moral Courage.  The 
Moultonborough Schools will continue to do all we can as a school system to uphold these ideals. We will address them directly in our educational programs, and in our engagement with students and families, working for a world that is equitable and kind; where people do not have to fear for their lives because of the color of their skin; and where everyone has the same opportunities to grow, thrive and enjoy their lives.
     

These resources are offered to help parents discuss racism with their children.
