W.Z. Burke Elementary is proud to celebrate the 18th Annual Inclusive Schools Week celebrated December 3-7, 2018, in classrooms, schools, and communities throughout the world. Inclusive Schools WeekTM (ISW) highlights and celebrates the progress schools have made in providing a supportive and quality education to all students, including those who are marginalized due to disability, gender, ethnicity, geography and language. It also provides an important opportunity for educators, students, and families to discuss what else needs to be done to ensure that schools continue to improve their ability to successfully educate all children.
This week W.Z. Burke Elementary celebrates the progress of our journey and encourages everyone to build their “Kaleidoscope of Friends” while following a path of sharing and action. This year’s Celebration contains and includes new tools aimed at supporting schools and students in the process of becoming more inclusive.
