June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month

In June, we celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month, dedicating this time to affirming the vast identities that create our strong and diverse district. During this month, we focus on the importance of creating space for our scholars, staff, and community to show up as their authentic selves. Scholars feel most empowered to do their best learning when they are comfortable being themselves.

Our district emphasizes maintaining safe and welcoming environments that cultivate sense of belonging throughout our schools. We are proud to share LGBTQ+ resources, contributions made by LGBTQ+ individuals, and progress made for equal rights and acceptance in our community and the world.

The work to create inclusive spaces takes much more than a month. FWPS is committed to including representation of all scholars as part of daily instruction, including LGBTQ+ history and human rights. It is important for all scholars to see themselves in their learning.

Follow our District social media and subscribe to our newsletter to learn more about how we support our LGBTQ+ community.
