August PTA General Membership Meeting - Wednesday August 12 @7PM 

Amharic translation services provided 

Please join us to hear from our special guest speaker Danielle Epps, a parent in our community, who will speak on the topic that in order to do anti-racism work, we need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. 

Ms. Epps is an educator and communicator, fueled by a passion for activism and a natural talent for developing human connections. Danielle has over fifteen years of experience as a national media personality, has hosted a variety of radio programming, is a skilled on-camera interviewer and host, and is the author of a best-selling collection of autobiographical essays titled, “Empathy and Eyebrows.”  

Danielle brought these experiences and skills with her into the classroom as she embarked on a new vocation as an educator. Currently in her Master’s program at Johns Hopkins University, she seeks to be a voice for social justice, an active anti-racist, and an advocate for our children, especially those who are forced to view the world through the lens of childhood trauma.  

Please mark your calendars for this important discussion!

360 Inclusion Committee

Picture this: your family smiling, learning about and celebrating the cultures, traditions and uniqueness of EVERY family at a Lyles-Crouch PTA event.

Imagine your children running into the house overflowing with excitement to share the fun they had learning about their friends’ unique life experiences at a new and exciting monthly inclusion event.

This is the purpose of the 360 Inclusion Committee, which was created to help ensure unity, cultural competency, and equity in our school community. The mission of the 360 Committee is to promote inclusion and equality, combat bias, and celebrate diversity within the LCTA community.  Our goal is for our diverse network of families to feel welcomed, represented and respected.
