Outdoor Exhibit: Dapplegray Elementary Legacy Project

Thursday, July 29, 2021
Peninsula Center Library
The Peninsula Center Library's BUILD team is pleased to host Dapplegray Elementary's Legacy Project, an outdoor exhibit featuring the families and stories of Dapplegray Elementary families. This exhibit was created by the Dapplegray Elementary Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee. This exhibit can be viewed off of the Peninsula Center Library's Deep Valley Drive entrance.
The Dapplegray Elementary Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee believes that diverse life experiences and perspectives enrich our school and community. In this spirit, the Dapplegray DEI Legacy Project seeks to facilitate an understanding of these experiences and perspectives, while also encouraging community reflection on diversity and inclusion, and individual and community heritage, legacy, and inspiration.
Dapplegray families were asked to share who in their family’s history was an inspiration and describe their legacy.  On display in front of the school, we have the submissions of those who shared.  Please take the time to drive, walk or ride by our school to enjoy the pictures and stories of our Dapplegray submissions. 
The responses are moving and inspiring. These stories reveal experiences of brave ancestors from various spots around the globe who paved the road for our students to be on our campus daily. The DEI committee hopes the series will encourage open dialogue, challenge preconceptions, and provide an experiential exploration of the culturally-varied population of our school. The aim is to ultimately help our community have a more meaningful understanding of each others’ backgrounds while also recognizing the common threads that knit us together.
We are Dapplegray. We represent stories of trial, hardship, strength, and success.
PVLD's B.U.I.L.D. Team fosters the District's shared values of service, public stewardship, and education to create an inclusive environment for staff and the community.  We do this through support, assessment, and facilitation to continue to ensure equity is built into all parts of PVLD.
