Who are we?
We are a team of Parkside parents, staff, and community members working together to strive towards true equity at our school. We know that there are many inequalities at Parkside rooted in current and centuries-old racist and oppressive systems that must be acknowledged and dismantled. We do this through a practice of learning with and from each other, practicing mutual aid instead of charity to meet people’s needs, and by taking action within and outside of the school system to create the systemic changes needed for all Parkside families to thrive.
Groceries, cleaning supplies, and technology all cost money! We have closed our fund and have moved to a mutual aid / individual volunteer helper model. To sign up to help us purchase these items for community members by signing up to be on the mailing list here.
