Building a Safe Community

September 30, 2020 | Chloe Ko

As this school year is unlike any other ones, we are having to have a different kind of discussion on what a safe community looks like.

From the first week, we started to have conversations on what it looks like to keep each other safe and healthy. Here is what the Courageous students have listed:


Then, we brainstormed together a catchy chant to remind each other.

Lastly, we cared to ask each other how we are doing during this time. On-campus students took time to ask and listen why distance learning was the right choice for off-campus learners as they shared.

Beyond these, I hear students reminding each other because they care. They care for each other’s safety and well being. I am proud of Courageous for contributing in these ways as we continue to build a stronger community.
