Parents Talk Racial Equity (PTRE), led by current/alumni Sunnyside parents, meets monthly to build skills and create a welcoming space for parents to speak openly about the role of race in our and our children’s lives. We envision a parent community that recognizes systemic racism affects each of us differently and continually depending on our racial identity, that sees, welcomes and responds to each of our children for who they are, and that celebrates the diversity of experiences and perspectives that each family brings.

Our next PTRE meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 1, from 6:30-8:30pm. Sunnyside Environmental School continues to graciously provide us space to meet, pizza and beverages, as well as recruiting Middle School students to provide childcare during the meetings. Please reply to to let us know if you are planning to come and if you need childcare. Please also let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.
