Distinctive Schools is closed today in honor of Juneteenth. As an organization, we will honor the importance of this day in American history. In solidarity with our staff, families & students, and aligned to a growing number of companies across the country, we close our office and campus doors for a day of remembrance and response to systemic racism, and to commemorate our commitment to continued progress in our own equity work as an organization. We will continue to cultivate an organization together that focuses on inclusivity and solidarity across all lines of difference in our world. We hope you will take a moment to reflect, honor and observe this historic day.

Spotlight on DCP-HW’s very own Mrs Chapmen! She has been a great role model to not only her colleagues, but to all the young women she’s encountered. She and her daughter have written a book called “Stop Calling Me Weird” which motivates children to embrace who they are and to ensure inclusiveness. Kudos to you Mrs. Chapman and thank you
