Anti-Racism Resources

 

Coe’s school counselor, Ms. Kaloper, has shared this interactive page where every object in the room is a clickable link to a video or a read-aloud book.

These are wonderful resources and are age-appropriate, though some are better suited for older children than younger ones.  You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with them first and then share them with your family.

The Coe PTA has also been provided with a great list of anti-racism resources (books and videos) from that Coe teachers are using to start conversations with students and families. Resources are identified for both children and adults.

Coe Community Request

Our school’s motto “Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Coe” stands as a great daily reminder for all of us especially now during this health pandemic. This is a challenging time for so many of us for different reasons and to varying degrees. But we are reminded to Be Safe and Be Kind.

In this spirit, Coe Cares and the PTA are asking for your support in assisting families that are struggling greatly right now.

We are looking to provide store gift cards to Safeway, Fred Meyer, Target, and QFC. Our school counselor, Meghan Kaloper, will distribute the gift cards to the families in need. This is standard practice to ensure privacy is maintained.

Please email Lori Wilken (wilkenlori@gmail.com) if you would like to offer your support with a gift card, cash, check or donation via Venmo or Paypal.

If your family is in need, contact Meghan Kaloper at mrkaloper@seattleschools.org. Requests are kept confidential.

We are all in this together. Be Safe. Be Kind. Be Coe.

Coe Counselor Website is now LIVE

Meghan Kaloper, school counselor at Coe Elementary has created a website meant to be used as a tool for Coe students and families to support social, emotional health and learning from home.

Even with the current school closure, we can still learn together and connect from our homes. You can access the site here.
