Black Lives Matter:
Ardmore PTSA Supports Black Lives Matter.
We, the Ardmore PTSA, strongly support the Black Lives Matter movement and we have a responsibility to work to counteract racism and the inequities in our community.
The current discussions in our country started because of police brutality, but we know we’re facing the broader issue of institutional and systemic racism. It’s an important time for us to reflect on what we can do to ensure the safety and success of our students of color. Children from marginalized communities should feel and be included, supported and safe.
We need to include more voices in guiding the Ardmore PTSA. If you have been unable to participate in the past but are willing, please reach out to us. This is a conversation we want to have, especially when we return to school in the fall.
