Diversity Night – February 9

Please join us this Thursday for Diversity Night from 6-7p in the school auditorium. We know this will be a special evening and we hope you can be there! Free pizza and childcare for elementary aged children 3+ will be provided by the PTO. You can sign up for childcare here.

We are delighted that the very talented Verity Rodrigues will be presenting about “Understanding Neurodiversity in Learning“.  Through her experiences and training as a school psychologist and licensed clinical psychologist, Dr. Rodrigues specializes in providing coaching and professional development to educators and school administrators on utilizing evidence-based assessment and intervention practices for students on the autism spectrum. At TRIAD, the Autism Institute at the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, Dr. Rodrigues works across TRIAD’s school-based professional development team supporting educators in autism evaluation and leading the development of professional learning content on autism and mental health. Dr. Rodrigues has served as an advisory board member on the Mental Health and IDD National Training Center and is currently the Tennessee Children’s Mental Health Champion through the Association of University Centers on Disabilities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
