Webinar: Considerations for Recognizing and Learning about Holidays in School
For school leaders and teachers, recognition of holidays and school-based celebrations can feel challenging even without the added pressures of the pandemic. In this webinar, we explored how and why we recognize major holidays, including religious holidays, in school. We discussed key questions about why we celebrate, how we recognize holidays, and how we ensure that we create inclusive learning environments for each and every student. With a focus on local context, we discussed how the recognition of holidays and cultural celebrations can create a deeper sense of belonging for all students. As you think about your school or district, it is important to consider how you will share your goals with students and families.
