Black history month

Black History Month

The CCE Library Team, Sra. Jonas and Sra. Burgess, have been actively working to build and support the DJUSD Board of Education approved Ethnic Studies program recommendation at the elementary school level. They have been working with our teachers and librarians across the district to fill our library shelves and curriculum units with Children’s Literature written by Ethnic Studies authors.

In addition, DJUSD School Board of Education voted unanimously December 17, 2021 to approve a resolution celebrating Juneteenth Independence Day as a local DJUSD holiday.

To provide support to the DJUSD COVID-19 response team, a group of parents (CCE – Darci Silbaugh) have created a DJUSD Parent COVID-19 Support Line to supplement district efforts to provide on-call, individualized support for DJUSD parents. The parents are trained staff members who will not provide medical advice, but can support our parents on a variety of topics such as: isolation and quarantine, testing FAQ’s, masking, and other general COVID-19 support.
