Day 5

Ravenscroft is excited to host our inaugural Creating Inclusive Communities conference in conjunction with Pollyanna, Inc. The theme of this year’s virtual conference is “Race, Privilege and Belonging.” The conference will revolve around conversations of how race and privilege impact a sense of belonging at our schools. Together we will share best practices and draw upon fellow communities to problem-solve and find meaningful solutions. 

We are excited to have you join us!
