All Are Welcome at Coe: A Celebration of Diversity

When/Where: April 26, 2022, 6:00-7:30 pm, on the Coe Playground

Your participation is needed! Create a poster sharing “what makes YOU or your family special?” and sign up at bit.ly/CoeFamilyPoster to let us know so we can support you with any needed materials (poster board, markers, etc)!

Here are two examples from 1st grader Rihaan and our wonderful Visual Arts Teacher, Mr. Chavez, for a little inspiration!

Diversity is much more than your race, ethnicity or culture. You might think a diversity event is not about your family or that you will just be an observer. But every family has something that is different and special, and we encourage you to come and share!

All are welcome! Race, ethnicity and nationality, just scratches the surface of identity or communities that one can belong to. Community and identity can encompass LGBTQ+, Faith and Religion, Disabled and Deaf, Languages, Holidays/Festivals, and so much more!!

Our family’s experience is only our experience and cannot encompass every aspect of identity. That is why we are glad to have a community to help us be more empathetic and inclusive. We would love to learn what makes you part of our diverse community at Coe.

2022 Coin Drive

We are very excited to bring back our annual coin drive to raise funds for our sister school in Afghanistan through our Journey with an Afghan School program. For our Day of Giving Assembly on Friday, March 25th, we look forward to hosting Afghan Fellow Shogofa Amini who will talk about obstacles children in Afghanistan face and how Coe students can help.

We will be hosting a week-long Coin Drive on starting Monday, March 28th. Students will receive a brown paper sack in their folders to put change or dollars into. Please drop off all change at one of the tables located outside (on either side of the school) each morning at drop-off.

In years past we have raised money to help our sister school purchase computers/laptops, projectors, desks, a new well, a new roof, coding classes – and more! Our goal is to raise $3500.

Any spare change you’re willing to donate will make a big difference! Thank you!
