Dear Westhill Families,
Conversations about racism are important for all families. The amount of information out there can be overwhelming, and we’d like to help.  We’ve curated a list of resources that can help you as you talk with your children about these important issues.  We will continue to update this list as we find additional resources, to better support you in these conversations.
We encourage you to preview the materials before sharing with your children, to ensure that they are a good fit for your child’s age.
