The Wesley School is passionate about and committed to being an inclusive community, and we continue to work diligently toward providing a space where all our members feel safe and appreciated. We value and respect our differences, whether they be in age, gender expression, culture, home language, skin color, religion, identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, ability, and more.
Twice a week, we come together as a whole school to build community, learn lessons, tackle difficult questions, and share experiences. Twice a week, we are connected. During this time in the mornings we celebrate all of our differences by sharing experiences and learning from one another.
When you join us for Community, don’t be surprised if you see a student, parent, or teacher leading a values-based discussion on a monthly theme or if a kindergartener talks about the importance of friendship.
Other times, you might find the 8th graders imparting what they now know about the Democratic Republic of the Congo or the 3rd grade class retelling a story of Native American lore. Often on Mondays our friends from the First United Methodist Church lead Community and generally focus on the theme of the month. They approach Community from a very inclusive perspective, respecting and honoring all religions. While the format is different each time, one thing remains unchanged—Community is a collective experience. From birthday celebrations to musical performances, it’s something we all share. What you feel, whether spiritually uplifted or moved to laughter or tears, is entirely up to you, but we trust you’ll feel what draws us all together. Come and experience Community for yourself. Come be inspired.
