Dear Boulder High School Community,
I start February's edition of the "Principal's Corner" with a heartfelt thank you to our entire community for how we came together during a difficult month. In January, when we received the tragic news that one of our beloved students had passed, our unified response showed the true meaning of the word community. Boulder High is truly a special place with wonderful and supportive people. I feel honored to be a part of this school.
In the wake of the recent sexual assault cases that have impacted our community, I want to update you on steps we have taken since my last message as well as plans we have in place moving forward. I also want to emphasize that this work will be embedded every year in multiple ways; it is not a one-time event. In order to create a culture of change, the message from the school and the community needs to be ongoing and consistent.
On Wednesday, March 11, Abbie Fagerwick from Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence (SPAN) will be joining our Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meeting. Abbie is currently teaching lessons in our health classes and working with our team to expand these presentations in other platforms at BHS. This will be a great opportunity to meet Abbie and hear more in-depth information on what she is teaching students as it pertains to sexual violence. The meeting will be 5:30–7:00 pm in the Boulder High School Library. If you have any questions about this meeting, please do not hesitate to contact me.
