Kaleidoscopes

Kaleidoscopes is the affinity group for students of color in the Primary School and for anyone who wants to learn more about diversity, equity, and inclusion. Upper schoolers have the opportunity to be mentors for the primary school students which means helping them with crafts, projects, reading them stories, and just having fun with them. It's very low commitment, we meet once a month and you do not need to go to every meeting. I'll be sending out a google form today so please respond if you are interested in being a mentor!
