The Woodson Pyramid is comprised of Woodson High School and its feeder schools: Frost Middle School, Canterbury Woods Elementary School, Fairfax Villa Elementary School, Little Run Elementary School, Mantua Elementary School, Olde Creek Elementary School, and Wakefield Forest Elementary School.  The Woodson Pyramid Principals invite our communities to come together on August 11 at 7-8 PM to engage in a shared conversation around Cultural Proficiency/Cultural Responsiveness in our pyramid. 

This town hall will be facilitated by our Equity Leads and administrators from each school.  We will present 3-5 guiding questions to solicit feedback around experiences and practices in our school community.  This discussion will allow schools to draw similarities for future work around equity and Cultural Proficiency/Cultural Responsiveness throughout our pyramid schools. 

Each school will hold a follow-up town hall at another time to share specific actions happening in each individual school to address Cultural Proficiency/Cultural Responsiveness.  We hope you will join us to contribute to the conversation.  A link will be sent to our families on Tuesday, August 11.
