POCIS Middle School Conference

Building Cultural Competency in Middle School
Join us at the Middle School Conference! All middle school students, educators, and parents are invited.  
When: Saturday, November 2, 2013
           9AM-12PM (Light breakfast at 8:30AM and Social from 12-1PM)
Where: Julia Morgan School for Girls, 5000 MacArthur Blvd, Oakland, CA 94613
We will put our heads together as participants to think about how we facilitate and nurture cultural competency within and beyond the middle school classroom. The student workshop will be focused on practicing cultural competency and identity. Adults will spend their time thinking about how we make sure our middle school students are gaining cultural competency for middle school success. Plus, there will be performances from students from EBSB, St Paul's and Edna Brewer to remind us all why we do what we do!
