Considering Belonging

School Assembly Features Book, Conversation and Discussion

Three cheers for a group of Increase Miller Elementary fifth graders! They stood before the entire third, fourth and fifth grade and shared information about prominent people of Hispanic heritage at the school’s first assembly of the year!

The theme of the assembly was belonging, and learning about baseball great Roberto Clemente, painter Frida Kahlo and electrical engineer Katya Echazarreta was only part of the program.

Assistant Principal Dr. Michael Weschler led a conversation about what belonging feels like. He and Principal Kerry Ford shared the book “A Kids Book About Belonging” by Kevin Carroll. “This wonderful book was recommended to me by an Increase Miller parent,” said Ford.
