Dear Black Hawk Middle School Community,
I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to Black Hawk Middle School. Whether you have been a part of the Black Hawk community for many years, or are new to our school, we look forward to working with you! Student centered decisions are the core of Black Hawk. We are committed to every Black Hawk student being heard, valued, feeling safe, having access to opportunities, and being pushed to achieve challenging, yet attainable goals. Through our work together we will ensure that all students are positioned to make our equity vision a reality. Our equity vision is as follows: All people in our school and community feel welcome, engaged, and valued. We commit to disrupting patterns that lead to inequitable access to engaging and rigorous opportunities for black students. This will be accomplished by building proactive and authentic relationships and partnerships that humanize youth and families. We will prioritize anti-racist strategies to inform planning, instruction, reflection, and adjustment. Together we are better.
